When Singing Is The Best Medicine


Our girls attend some homeschool arts classes at a local co-op on Tuesdays. This semester both girls sang in the choir. Yesterday, the group visited two local senior centers. I had volunteered to drive some of the girls and that car full of girls was the best medicine I could have ever asked for. They sang the whole trip.  By the time the day was over, I felt ten years younger and my soul had been bountifully filled. 


I'm a people watcher. so while the choir sang, I watched. There was a room full of seniors that had gathered to listen to the kids sing. I watched as some sat quietly, some sang along to every melody and others grinned ear to ear through each song. I watched and wondered of all the life stories hidden behind those eyes. Seniors fascinate me and I long to listen to stories of ages past. The amount of history in that one room overwhelms me. 


Today, life was good, and for that I am grateful.

  1. I know just what you mean. Our homeschool group went to a retirement home at Christmas. They sang Christmas carols and made gingerbread men with them. Each child also brought a home made blanket. Each resident received one. I left there feeling amazingly blessed. Prayers for you. :-)

    Blessings...
