My Favorite Gift

I had a nice Christmas and received several gifts that were thoughtful and personal. The garbage disposal was tops on my list; if it had only come with a little guy who will guarantee installation before next Christmas! My favorite gift, though, was not one on my wish list. Allan gave me a gift certificate to itunes. I didn't realize how much I would enjoy this present until I started spending hours perusing song samples and carefully picking which to download on my computer. The last couple of nights I have drifted away in bed to the sounds of my new collection of hits. I have to put Where is the Love? by the Black Eyed Peas at the beginning, since there is no way to sleep to that song. There are the songs that take me back to road to trips with Allan during our college years and immediately wash over me with deep emotion: Walking in Memphis, Tears in Heaven and In Your Eyes. I find myself smiling as I listen to two of the greatest love songs ever: Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton and Marc Cohn's True Companion. There are newer favorites by Jack Johnson, Gavin McGraw, Maroon Five and Five for Fighting and some good oldies by Bryan Adams and Bonnie Raitt. I still have another $13.17 left on my gift account - I can't wait to keep shopping!

Thanks, hon!

Thank you so much for the kind words - I know you've been hungry for some new music lately, and I can't think of a funner way to shop for it. And, you don't have to drag your kids along! And, it's guilt-free! =)

I'll be thinking of suggestions to throw your way. Try Ollabelle or Casting Crowns.

Or try Sara Groves...She's pretty much the soundtrack of my life right now.

I can give you an Ollabelle CD if you would like. Other wise I think Allan is a genious for his gift and you are a blessed person to recieve the gift of music. And lastly I expect to listen to everything you download.
