Let's Play Music!

Mia just completed her first year of the "Let's Play Music" program. A friend of mine referred me to the program, and I am very happy with it.  She has learned so much, and we are very proud of her.  She loved her teacher, Miss Melissa, who helped make the first year very positive for us. During her concert, she played along to "Do Re Mi" on the bells, and sang along with the other songs that were performed by other classes. It was so fun to watch!  It lasted a full 15 minutes! I guess that means she's already had her 15 minutes of fame. Well, until next year at least!

A few things that I recently read...

In honor of Mother's Day, I just wanted to share a couple of things that I recently read. 

3 John 1:4  "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth."

President James E. Faust "I fear you sisters do not realize in the smallest part the extent of your influence for good in your families, in the Church, and in society. Your influence for good is incalculable and indescribable."

Pres. Faust "I also believe that there is no greater good in all the world than motherhood. The influence of a mother in the lives of her children is beyond calculation."

"I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life."  President Abraham Lincoln

"When God thought of mother, He must have laughed with satisfaction, and framed it quickly--so rich, so deep, so divine, so full of soul, power, and beauty was the conception." Henry Ward Beecher

"A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts."  Washington Irving

Happy Mother's Day to all the women who may read this, mothers or not.
