"At first i was afraid, i was petrified; I've got all my life to live, I've got all my love to give, I will survive, i will survive" (Gloria Gaynor)

i just love music! i have been practicing my "singing voice" in the car on my way to work, and at home when i am there by myself. i have never been a professional singer,ha ha,but i enjoy singing. my voice started changing before my surgery. that was a hint something was wrong. it actually improved quite a bit immediately after surgery, but then i sounded like 'froggy" until my endo upped my thyroid dose. now i get a little hoarse in the evenings. either i am singing too much, or it is coming from  the swelling i still have in that area. listening to music is an antidepressant for me. i can usually cheer myself up after a good song or two. after my poor unsuspecting radiologist told me about my lymph nodes being cancer, i stopped singing and listening to music. but it only lasted for about a day. i am embracing my Pollyanna self again. i know that whatever happens, i will do my best to get better.

on my next CD of upbeat music ( my daughter is making this for me) i asked her to include the song by Gloria Gaynor- " I will survive". i know she is talking about love gone bad, but i think it can relate to other things as well. i also asked her to include, " here comes the sun" by George Harrison. as for the rest of the CD, it will be a surprise. i never know what to expect. i have almost worn out the first one she made for me, and my husband sure is sick of hearing it every time we get in the car to go somewhere! i think he actually grits his teeth when "all the single ladies" comes on! but isn't that a joyful song though? i mean, so many people have danced to it. and there was that u-tube video where the little boy was in the back seat trying to " dance" along with his sisters. it was so cute!

good music, good food, good family times, nature, God... so much to be thankful for.
