If my heart was filled with one more ounce of pride this morning, it would have burst all over the Senior 1 classroom. I know, I know, not a good image…but it’s true! The warm weather must have gotten to everyone in that room, including me, because the overall mood during music therapy was positively giddy. And that translated into an amazing session during which the staff and students enthusiastically participated in each activity, singing so loud I could barely hear myself (quite a feat).

I really do have the best job in the world. I get paid to write songs for my students, work with them each week, and cheer them on as they reach their goals. While I appreciate this every day, it really hit home this morning when I looked around and saw an entire classroom, adults and students alike, 100% engaged and having a great time.

Life is good.
