I wonder what I would do...

I wonder what I would do if I didn't "do" music. If I wasn't in choirs and bands throughout my whole life. If I didn't have the ability to sing. If I didn't spend the hours and hours in rehearsal, or practicing myself, or teaching voice lessons. What would I do?

Today was one of those days that I was so very happy to do what I do. I took my choir from church to a nursing home to carol where two members of our congregation are currently residing. Both are those kind of people who always have a smile on their face.

One of them is currently in hospice. She has a tumor on her brain. I find myself having a hard time believing that this funny, happy, active woman, is now suddenly dealing with this illness. The only thing that was ever wrong with her is that she is a Steelers fan ;) I am so very glad that we got to sing for everyone, but I am really glad that we got to sing for her. The smile on her face made my day. I am so very glad I do what I do.

This makes me so happy. I remember a conversation we had in Myrtle Beach the summer you graduated from high school - you were worried about how to transform your love of music into a career. You've done a wonderful job of doing what you love!

BINGO, why I'm finishing up my Master's in music therapy. :-) The way the brain processes music is amazing, and makes it such a powerful tool for change and healing.
