A Week of Gratitude: Monday

With a Song in our Heart

One way to feel that sense of gratitude through your entire body is when you are singing and dancing. When you have little kids in the house they love seeing mommy dance and sing. It makes them happy.

So on this week of gratitude remember to turn up (or on) the music just a little bit and dance around your house. It will make you feel better and it is good exercise.

This past year we bought a small portable turntable so we could listen to all the record albums on vinyl that we had stored in our basement. This makes me very happy and very Grateful.

Here are a couple of the albums I put on when I want to lift my spirits:

I particularly love the song Tiajuana Taxi - it just makes me happy - when the taxi honks its horn in the song it always makes me giggle.

The song that makes me super happy on this album is September but actually the entire album is great.

This Ska band just makes me happy. The music of Streetlight Manifesto is high energy and will help you get your housework done in half the time (because you will be moving right along to the beat on the album which keeps moving right along).

Do you have a favorite song that makes you want to get up and dance or sing along?  Let us know on Facebook on the Stay at Home Mom community page

"They both seemed to understand that describing it was beyond their powers, the gratitude that spreads through your body when a burden gets lifted, and the sense of homecoming that follows, when you suddenly remember what it feels like to be yourself." Tom Perrotta
