Gratitude Day 3

I'm sneaking this in a bit late. But today I am grateful for good music. I went over to the church today to practice the piano. More specifically, to practice for our upcoming Messiah sing-along. Most specifically, the Hallelujah chorus. That little number is awe inspiring. It never gets old. In fact, the whole Messiah is incredible. And, of course, there is a lot of other good music out there, in many genres. I am often inspired by Guster, or Dashboard Confessional, or Nickel Creek, or any number of bands. There is just a lot of great music. And I am grateful for the way it infuses my life with bits of happiness.

Hi Shanny!

I'm here to tell you that I'm grateful for your husband decision to serve a mission: he came to Brazil where I met him, in Camobi Ward, Santa Maria. It's been a long time ago, but good friends stay forever, and I consider you both my friends (you helped me when I was at college and needed information to write about proposals in the USA - you sent me that material!) Now I am married and have 3 kids. And you 2 cute girls, congratulations!
It's nice to be here. I'm following you. You're invited to visit my blog too, it will be a pleasure!

I hear ya. Without music I would need therapy, I think. Because I think it is my therapy-hehe. And fiddle music has a happiness to it that is good deep down in a different way than the Hallelujah chorus. But I need them-all kinds. I love your gratitudes!

I am enjoying your gratitude month. I am also grateful for music and for those are are willing to share their musical talents with others. (I miss hearing your beautiful voice.)

Music is a big one for me too!

I love this gratitude idea...I think the things I'm most grateful for are probably the things I take most for granted, so this is a wonderful way to remember them.
