day 17: music
Today I am thankful for music and every role it has played in my life. I grew up in a music-filled home and that spilled over to my school life.
Music was my favorite special area class in elementary school, and I even stayed after school on Mondays to participate in a special music program. My orchestra and choir classes helped me survive the awkward middle school years. Choir made the rest of high school have a purpose. I spent every minute I could in the choir room and I loved it. I even started out my college career studying music.
Though I ended up going in a different direction in school, music still plays just as important a role in my life. Singing led me to a deeper friendship with my now husband and is ultimately what sealed the deal for us in the beginning.
Music is also my main way to worship. I just love singing praises to my God, and even more when I can be seated at a piano at the same time. I was also blessed with a husband who loves to worship in the same way I do, so we get to do that together, it's pretty special to me.
Basically, who I am is shaped in a big part because of the involvement music has had in my life.
