I’m not sure about every other Music Therapist out there, but I find one of my greatest joys to be the families of my clients. These are some amazing people with so much love in their hearts! I absolutely love being around them! I find joy and encouragement in being around them. I love how involved they want to be and are, not only in my sessions, but in every aspect my clients’ lives. I admire the time, energy, and love that they pour out on their children (or siblings). I am encouraged by their endurance. And I praise them! I praise them for their vulnerability, their drive, and the way they embrace every moment!
I love when I am finished with a session and a parent wants to talk! I enjoy hearing their hearts. I look forward to hearing all that they have to say! And I pray, to even a small degree, that I can encourage them in those few moments as well.
What a gift God has given me in the lives of these families!
