Let's Sing!!

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful (if I had a fire), but since there's no place to go, Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!! Music is a big part of my life. It is interesting how a song can change how we feel about life or a situation we are in. I am so happy that my Mom found it important to have music become apart of my life. Five out of six children took piano and I would say are very talented in singing and piano. I don't remember ever singing together as a family but I grew up listening to my sister, Sandra, singing at the piano. I remember sitting on the stairs and would listen. I never went in but I always listened. I always loved it when all my sisters would sing together. My mom was always playing the piano. She later told me that she would play when she would feel anxious or stressed. I guess she was always stressed and anxious. I hope to keep the legacy of music in my little family. We like to dance and sing together to music on the radio. "Life's a dance you learn as you go Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow Don't worry about what you don't know Life's a dance you learn as you go"

Oh...that was sweet. If I could go back and do everything over that I know now, I would hope that you wouldn't sit on the stairs, but that you would have come in! I wish I played the piano when I was stressed and anxious. I eat. It's showing!!
Love Sandra
