Music has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember. My Great Aunt Norma taught me to appreciate music starting in preschool by bribing me with a reel-to-reel recorder like this:
It didn't matter whether I was singing or playing piano, when she deemed my performance worthy, she'd press record and the machine would listen in and record me. Then she'd moved the lever to rewind and play it back for us. It intrigued me and inspired me to get better and better.
So today I'm feeling thankful for the music in me. And for Aunt Norma, who gave me that love for music along with her century-old
And now, with today's technology, I was able to use the flip cam to catch Joshua's piano practice, played on that same musical instrument I learned to play on years ago under Aunt Norma's care in her living room. I especially love that it has a fourth pedal to give it that special harpsichord sound.
Happy Thanksgiving from our house to yours!
