Music Mama: Inspiring Playlist

By Jackie Helton, the Music Mama

Sometimes what we need most is a little boost, and music is a great way to get it. So this month’s list is music designed to inspire you, put a smile on your face and make the day a little brighter. The holiday rush-rush-rush is fast approaching, so this is a good time to download some tunes that will keep you from getting too stressed out as you try to get things done in time for the holidays.

To enjoy this playlist, just print it and go to your favorite online music store (like iTunes) and download your favorites. Then pop in your earphones, dance in the kitchen or go for a walk or a ride in the car, and ENJOY. Life is short, mamas. Be inspired.
