Today I appreciate music. Enjoying music is more than listening to a favorite recording artist or singing a song. I think of so many of life’s every day sounds as music setting the rhythm for the day. From the birds outside my window, my husband getting ready for work, the soft bubble of water boiling and then sloshing into my morning cup of tea, to the patter of paws running to their dishes to await their morning feeding, all these are mellow melodies. These simple sounds are the music that bring me the most joy. The birds singing promise of love in the air and the hope of future generations. The sound of my husband getting ready for work is just one of the many ways he shows his love and devotion to our life together. My morning tea allows time to gather my thoughts and plans for the day. The patter of paws are joyful expressions of appreciation and mutual unconditional love. So appreciate all of life’s music from the overture to the final encore!
