The power of music is amazing. It can change your mood as well as the feeling in your home. A beautiful melody can inspire and lift. And, many times, it's more powerful than words.
I appreciate my parents for making sure that I was brought up in a home where music was a part of almost everything we did. My grandparents and mother are all accomplished musicians, and we were expected to take lessons, practice every day (thanks, Mom, for never letting me quit!), and share our talents. I'm grateful—especially this time of year—that the love of music was engrained in me from an early age, and that my husband and I decided to make that an important part of our home and children's lives as well. Great music brings personal joy. Sharing it with others can change lives.
