This past summer my husband surprised me, and got me something i have always wanted... a GUITAR!
i have always wanted to learn to play the guitar. i began taking lessons a few months ago.
let me say, it is NOT easy learning something new when you are 35.
i envy my kids and their ability to absorb and retain information. i admire the time they have to practice and pursue the things they are passionate about. i admire how they can enjoy every aspect of their passion without the weight of dinner, bills, laundry, and the never ending to-do's. sometimes these things cause me to want to throw in the towel and call it quits!
but i know me. i know that i need to follow through. i know that i need to pursue the things i long to do, otherwise that longing will always be there.
so here it is my friends- after 8 lessons, totaling $200, i can play "Jesus Loves Me" on the guitar.
and that longing in me being filled is PRICELESS!
what have you always wanted to learn to do?
