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.
