If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day
Till Eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

- Jim Croce

I have always loved this song. When I sat down to write and think of title it popped into my head. Therefore I have to think of something other to write than what I had planned since this has nothing to do with what I was going to write.

Growing up I listened to a lot of “oldies.” Both of my parents love to listen to music. They have everything from records to 8 tracks to tapes to cds. I thought it was kind of crazy how much music they had. Evey time I go back to their house though they have even more!

In a way I envy them. I used to listen to music all the time, now not so much. I spent hours in my room with the stereo blasting. My brother and I would have wars to drown each other out, his room was located directly above mine so it didn’t take much to hear each others music.

My husband is also a music lover, one of the reasons I fell in love with him. He does listen to music still and always talking about someone new he heard on Pandora. He loves Pandora, it helps keep him sane when he’s at works. I would need music if I had a desk job as well.

My daughters both love music as well and it makes me incredibly happy. They are constantly singing and dancing. L loves to make up songs or change the words to songs she knows. She mostly sings to K to help her feel better, it makes my heart swell to see the way the interact. It’s so beautiful. K will dance to any music that she hears, including the X-File theme which makes me crack up every time.

I do love music. They way it makes you feel, every song creates a different reaction. Some make you want to dance, others cry and my favorite are the ones that you just can’t help but sing along with.  Bursting out in song no matter how crazy it makes you look. Whether it’s an old song that brings back memories of  family road trips or a new one that you have to listen to over and over again until you know it inside and out and you feel like it has become a  part of you, songs  and their music are magical.
