Music brings joy

So it just goes to show you that music reaches everyone no matter what your circumstances and sometimes it helps in ways you can't even imagine. Mom has to flex her feet as much as possible when she is sitting in order to keep the circulation flowing in her legs and help with the edema. Well here we are watching American Idol tonight and enjoying a performance by Maroon 5 and I glance over and see this going on in the recliner next to me!! Thanks M5 for a great performance and for getting mom so into it that her feet were dancing. Mom has always loved music and she and I share that love together and still do. I am truly cherishing these moments we are getting to spend together and we both can't wait to see Cher and Tina Turner on Oprah tomorrow--well I know mom sure is! I remember several years ago mom said to me, "Before I die I want to see Rod Stewart and Tina Turner in concert". Well that was a long time ago and a lot has happened since then but I am proud to say that back in August of 2003 I managed to get mom to a Rod Stewart concert and in the 5th row and boy was that fun...I don't think I'll ever forget that night. While I haven't been able to make her dream to see Tina Turner in concert come true I know that tomorrow she will watch Oprah and I'll be sitting there smiling as she enjoys the music.

Make the most of every day that the Lord gives you, no matter what your life has in store. Live each day like it could be your last and make lasting memories NOW while you have the opportunity. Enjoy every day to the fullest...listen to music, it does bring joy!
