Great quote from Grandma Moses so true.My husband played guitar and was in a band when we first got married.It was fun and it has left many good memories.He later on in life just played his accoustic guitar like the one above.My oldest has that one, the youngest choose to keep his electric guitar.

Have a great day!

Libbie said...

I am so trying to go with that motto right now! "Life is what you make it." So true! I always seem to get a little crabby as my babies get around 6 months old ~ I think I start feeling a little sorry for myself that my husband doesn't have to ask if he can run to the store. So this time around, with Rocco, I was ready for that! And sure enough...it hit! But I am fighting it hard with this motto (& with scripture) So hopefully I am the cheery mom I want to be...not all, day everyday...but you know...in general :) I know my kid's are developing their personalities RIGHT NOW! So I just pray they learn & live that way too.

Oh...& those cupcakes are calling my name :)

Unlike most everyone else, my favorite music is silence. But I've always loved the soft strumming of the guitar. Such a sweet sound.
