My most precious gift

Hi there. Grace here to share with you an image that best describes if not the most, one of the most precious gifts I have ever received.

Ever since I can remember I have been a huge fan of musical instruments. At first I wanted to learn voilin. No I'm not musically gifted, I am just purely elated to the idea of being able to play an instrument. Growing up in the Philippines, I didn't have much opportunity to learn any musical instrument so when I moved to the states in 8th Grade, I finally got my wish when my Aunt enrolled me in some piano lessons.

It was awesome and although I didn't stick with is as long as I should have (high school came in the way) I've always had a special spot for the Piano and the beautiful music we can create with it.

So fast forward to today and that desire for beautiful music still lives on. I had told my husband at the beginning of the year that I wante a piano for my birthday (which was in July). He said that if we can find a good deal that we will look into it. I know that a brand new one would be way over our budget so for six months I scoured the Craigslist site to find a used one in the area. There were deals alright but it was a matter of being the first one to see it. At times I was getting frustrated for not being able to find "the one". Fortunately after six months of religious searching I finally found one. I called the owner and by that afternoon we had hauled it to our home and found the perfect spot for it in our living room.

It was perfect timing as my birthday was just days away. This item and the gift of music brought to my home is priceless. And the best part of it was only $50!

Now that's a deal!

Have a great day,
