Friday's Music Moment- Peace at Last

After hearing my friend, sociologist Christine Carter, talk about her new book "Raising Happiness" last night, today's Music Moment was an easy choice. Her research shows that happiness is not a mindset so much as a set of teachable skills, and that we can start right away with small steps to help our children cultivate those skills for life.

I know that one of the things that makes me happiest is listening to music. At 5:30 when I am starting to think about cooking dinner, crabby from all I haven't accomplished so far and worried about all I have left to do, the first thing I do is put on some music in the background - and let's face it, open a beer. This band, Blue Nile, is some of my favorite background music for changing the mood. This song, with its lovely "Happiness, happiness" chorus says it all.

Hope your weekend is full of gratitude and joy!
