A Gifted Piano {Plus a Moms Against Manic Mondays link-up}

Moms Against Manic Mondays

Happy Monday, beautiful ladies!!!

There are so many beautiful things about Mondays.  Here at From My Mountain View, every Monday, we band together and renounce/reject manic Mondays.  Right here is a perfect place for us to encourage one another and be encouraged!

Moms Against Manic Mondays is a place you can share a post or article on your blog about:
Mondays - Encouragement - Joy - Pressing On - etc.

I have played the piano as long as I can remember.   I have a photo of myself sitting on my mother's lap as a baby in front of her old upright.  I have a keyboard, which is wonderful and I am so thankful for it.  However, electric is simply never a complete substitute for the real thing.  Those strings, hammers, full echoing sound, touch, and so much more.

My husband bought  me  our family a piano yesterday.  :)

It was an extraordinary event.  A God-story.  There are truly never pianos in decent condition on websites for classifieds for less than a pretty penny.  I was the first one to email about this listing (which never seems to happen, right?).  For less than our budget for one, we scored this beauty.

It needs a good tuning, and two keys stick a bit that need to be repaired.  But I am absolutely, positively tickled pink.  :)

I bless you today with eyes to see them and hearts to recognize them - the blessings in disguise. Eucharisteo.

Psalm 118:24 (amp)

"This is the day which the Lord has brought about;
we will rejoice and be glad in it!"

I desire to recognize what is my part of the "manic" in Mondays, and do what  I can to change it.

I desire to live abundantly in the Mondays.

I desire to thrive in each day; to dance them in along with the sun.
