Note To Self:



I am my worst critic!

I just spent a weekend sick as a dog because I am so hard on myself. I really need to learn to figure out how to manage my stress in new ways, because my body WILL take over if left too long without some release.

My Senior Seminar research project is about using Music Therapy with Children that have Autism. Since April is Autism Awareness Month, here is a little reminder. These kids learn differently, but they can still learn. If you know of someone who is affected by an Autism Spectrum Disorder, see if they receive any kind of Music Therapy!

The quote I like the most is:

“Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul.”(Plato)

Only 31 more days until Graduation! Yep, I'm gonna make it...I think!

  1. My daughter has Asperger's. When she was 3 we put her in a song and dance performance group. It was one of the few times she interacted well. That only lasted one season, but when she was 6 we started her in dance and put her in children's choir. Having a structured way to interact with others and learning how to perform as a team member really helped her learn about personal space and getting along with others. She just returned from a dance competition where she performed a solo in front of a few 100 folk. If we had just let her stay in her own world, she wouldn't be the successful 14 year old that she is today.

  3. What an amazing project! Sorry you had such a rough weekend!
    Know that I'm always here praying!
    Psalms 116:3-5 ...I found trouble and sorrow. Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul. Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.

  4. Praying!
    Hebrews 6:17-20 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

  5. Christ died and rose again that we might have hope! Praying!
    1 Corinthians 15:3-4 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

  7. Here praying as always!
    Psalms 18:28-30 For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall. As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.
