All of my life I have had some talent in music.  The first time I knew I had an “ear” for music was when I was around 5 or so watching Sesame Street.  I don’t know where it came from, but I sure was playing each note of Sesame Street on my guitar!   From there I got some lessons and learned the basic chords which helped my ear as well.  As time went on I was able to play anything that I listened to back then.  From KISS to Led Zepplin, To Tom T. Hall, I had a wide range of ability to pick out the tunes and play them on my guitar. 

Later in life I began playing the harmonica.  This is when I really began seeing my potential.  I picked it up so fast.   The worship leader at my church gave me a chance to play with them.  Today we play together along with other members of the church band at an assisted living place.  

By no means am I a great guitar or harmonica player.  I have a lot of growing to do.  However, I recognize I have a lot of potential. 

I believe that whether we are disabled or not, we all that spark of potential within us.  With the help of friends, I was able to find mine.
