Feel Good Music

This week has been really hard - it's my first week leaving Judah at home and working full days and other stuff has been going on that has me feeling blue. I definitely am praying regarding said situations but one of my other coping mechanisms has been music. I get in my truck on the way to and from work and crank up the Ipod! Here's what's on my heavy rotation these days.

King Harvest "Dancing in the Moonlight" - This is my personal favorite right now. Just hearing the keyboard/piano? entry makes me smile. I have always loved this song - it makes me think of warm weather and being at the river. Imagine my surprise when it came on a Walmart commercial last night - I just had to pick up Judah so we could dance.

Quiet Riot "C*m On, Feel the Noize" - Everyone my age went through the 80s metal period and this song still remains a favorite. I can remember skating to this song and it still makes me want to move my feet.

Pete Townshend "Let My Love Open the Door" - Okay, so Pete didn't have that distinguished of a solo career and this doesn't even begin to match recordings of The Who, but who can resist such a fun song? I'm going for mood enlightening, not music credibility here. I first heard this song in the final scene of the movie "Jersey Girl" - the movie wasn't that good but I had to go look up the song and I have enjoyed it ever since.

I promise to post next time with what people really care about - pics of the cutest baby in the world!

Oh...I remember that week I went back to work. Very hard, indeed. I'll be praying for you this week. I liked your comment about still processing the whole parenthood thing. I am too...I still don't have a grasp on what just happened to 2 years later. The whole, having to go back to work thing adds a whole 'nother dimension of processing. Knowledge of the soverienty of God is great has often halted the processing long enough to let my mind REST.
Enjoy that sweet smiling baby!
