Being Thankful...

for music today...I just love Josh Groban's song Thankful--sorry no photos on this video just the lyrics which are great. I have been listening to it everyday. I think I was too drugged out to appreciate it last year! (Back surgery=pain killers). Anyway, check it out if you haven't. I love hearing Gwen and Emily sing around the house--Zane is also a cute little singer. I love hearing our church choir practice in our basement family room on Sundays. Tim is the choir director. I love hearing Taran and his friends make music in the basement or garage. I love hearing Timo play Fur Elise on the piano or Phantom of the Opera. I enjoy Izak and Micah's recent interest in the piano and practicing Christmas songs. Last year my favorite Christmas album was the MOTAB (Mormon Tabernacle Choir) with the King's Singers (the cover is one of the photos I posted)Rejoice and Be Merry. The music is just amazing--check this outhere and it's not even my favorite. And Ring Christmas Bells with Brian Stokes Mitchell is a great one too that just came out--see this! My mom got us that one. I am so excited we got tickets to see the MOTAB with Natalie Cole! They are free so it's a lottery. Music can be such an inspiration to us and lift us to great heights. If you want a good Thanksgiving Album try A Thanksgiving of American Hymns by BYU Choirs. The final song is Come Thou Fount on You Tube, one of my most favorite songs ever and they do an amazing, seriously amazing rendition.
**itunes has them and Amazon.
