The Gift of Music

My young great nephew Jordan came over last night for the Christmas Cookie baking. While we were waiting for all the other great nieces and nephews to arrive, Jilda and I played Jordan a song on the guitars.
The moment he heard the first strum, his eyes flew open in amazement and a smile came to his face as if he'd just been given a gift.
We made up a little song on the spot that had his name in it and he started dancing in time to the music.
I taught Haven and Samantha how to play basic chords. They both picked up quickly but I don't think either had "the love" of music. I have a hunch, after seeing Jordan's face, that he does have that love.
I can't wait until he gets a little older. I will get him a guitar and teach him to play. I don't know of a better gift to give a child.
