if there is something that instantly puts me in a good mood,
it is listening to my children play music.
my daughter knows me well,
the minute she starts playing
she knows i'm smiling...
if not on my face, definitely in my heart
journey's 'don't stop believin'
her latest, favourite piano score...
the melody is so sweeeeet
our piano is an ancient upright that
we purchased shortly after my daughter was born.
it needs annual tuning but all the work is worth it because it is capable of quite a range.
we are blessed because our little miss loves pounding on its' ivory keys.
we are doubly lucky because she practises without prompting,
learning to play her pieces with emotion,
continually restarting when she makes an error.
all the while,
my heart fills with glee !
