My mom was frustrated today because she had a very hard time playing the piano. Not only that, the tune sounds off key to her. She is just unable to enjoy music the way she used to, but she keeps on trying. A part of me is angry that music has always been part of who she is and now it’s a struggle. But as we discussed this, mom said that God gave her 2 good hands for so many years. We talked about what a blessing she has been to help countless others enjoy music through her talents. As she played the organ or piano for every church she was part of -and others- she helped thousands of people connect with God. She does her best to see the positive in difficult situations. I continue to learn from her every day.
I Found God today in appreciation for the gifts he has given my mom.
