You Might As Well Smile

 

I was raised on a wonderful musical diet growing up.  Glen Campbell, Elvis Presley, Lawrence Welk, Julie Andrews, Barbra Streisand, Englebert Humperdinck, classical music, orchestral arrangements, swing, hymns, choirs, you name it.  My parents usually had something wonderful playing on the large wooden record player cabinet that sat in in our front hallway.

Anyway, with all the alarming and constant bombardment of bad news in the world, music can treat most of what ails me.  Put on a good song…..poof, the worries are gone, and I’m singing.   I would love to hear from any of you….what kind of music makes you feel better?

Enjoy this old classic from Glen Campbell.  Love, Lisa

All the Feelings

Life is a roller coaster of days and emotions.  Good days, hard days, crazy busy days, happy, sad, confused.  The list goes on and on.

But I am so thankful for all the feelings.  All the wonderful crazy feelings that I feel.  What a gift from God.  Because I would rather feel and love and hurt and cry than feel nothing at all.

This day, this picture, was one of those feelings days.  Crying, laughing, loving, and wondering at majesty of creation all within seconds.  Imprinted in my memory forever.
