23 Days of Gratitude | Day 23 - Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! Today is the culmination of 22 daily expressions of gratitude, and it is only fitting that my final post focuses on my inspiration for this series.

There will be plenty of turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie today, but most importantly, I’ll be surrounded by family. I’m grateful that Thanksgiving gives me the opportunity to celebrate the very best part of my life.

One of the best parts of having our families nearby is that we’ve gotten to continue many of the holiday traditions that were established when my husband and I were growing up. Although we’ve had to adjust a bit as our own family has grown, it is so much fun now getting to include our children in those traditions.

When I purchased the domain name for Listen & Learn Music a little over 9 years ago, I never imagined this would become a place that would help me connect with hundreds of music therapists, teachers, and parents across the country. Every time I attend AMTA national conference, it’s especially apparent just how many friends I’ve made through this tiny corner of the internet.

Being a business owner is not easy, especially when your profession is more unconventional than most. Luckily, I live in a community that supports music therapy, and has always been willing to show its support in a variety of ways. Over the years, my work has been featured in numerous newspaper articles and television news segments, as well as promoted by other professionals, schools, and local organizations.

Since my children were born, I’ve been away a handful of times. There have been a few conferences and work-related trips, as well as several girls’ weekends with my friends. That time away is so good for me, and I enjoy it to the fullest, but I always look forward to coming home to my family.
