Nathan was a little out of sorts yesterday evening and didn’t want to be entertained by any of his usual toys. After a silent prayer to know what to do to distract him and help him be happy I had the thought to sit down at the piano and play some of his favorite kid songs. Immediately he started singing and skipping through the house belting out, “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes,” “Do as I’m Doing,” and “Popcorn Popping” again and again and again. I was probably playing for 40 minutes:).
I’m thankful for the power good music has to cheer gloomy moods and bring a smile to your face! I’m also thankful God helped me think of something to help him feel happy.
