music notes

Today’s one word prompt is music.

Music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.  Like love, it has surrounded me, brought me peace and joy, and is always there to help me through.  I believe music is divinely designed and God created it for this purpose.

In my life, it all started with my dad playing his harmonica and hearing my grandpa would play music, when we would visit in my early years.  I heard music at home and in church throughout my youth.

Then I met David, my soul mate.  He comes from a family of musicians who use to get together on weekends and play.  My children have heard music from the womb and were born with rhythm and music intertwined in their DNA.

I will hear a guitar, a piano, or drums being played at any given time in my home.  If it’s not my husband playing, it’s one of my children and sometimes it’s all of them together.

Most mornings I wake up with a prayer or a song of praise in my mind.  Music rates right up there, after my relationship with God and the love of my family.

I can’t imagine life without music.

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
