Sun and Songs

I am so thankful for the grace I am given to be relieved from stress.  Today, the magic recipe was the band Young the Giant and the sun raking in through my window!  My evening started with some comfort food.  Homemade mac and cheese always hits the spot about mid week.  Even though my husband and one of my daughters were at meetings, my other two daughters and I had a lovely evening, singing at the top of our lungs to Young The Giant as we washed the dishes and cleaned up after the meal.  With light hearts we twirled around the kitchen crooning along - vocalizing and harmonizing with the lead singer. (He wasn't so bad to look at for two hours last Friday, by the way)  It never ceases to amaze me how I can rediscover so many passions over and over in my life.  Music, art, writing, reading, and God of course, seem to feel just under my skin and so close they are permeating my life.  Then, there is distance, and despair.  All over again, I am able to rediscover the beauty and wonder of them all.  What a gift!  Here is a photo from us at the concert in Detroit last Saturday night.

I love the image of you singing and twirling with your daughters as you washed dishes. Music is such a powerful mood booster.
