“Thank you” seems too simplistic a way to express my gratitude to the many friends, Kindermusik families, and complete strangers who have left messages on my answering machine, emailed, sent cards, or brought food to our family in the past week.  We have been blessed with many wonderful people who have come alongside us and held us up when we didn’t think we could keep going.  We are very grateful, and you have our heartfelt thanks for your support.

Due to the homegoing of our beloved Granny Lou, I have been unable to post next semester’s schedule on my website, but it will be up in the next day or so.  Current Kindermusik families will be given first choice of classes in our Priority Registration which begins December 5th.  Information on specific classes as well as registration information will be available on this Wednesday, December 5th.  Open registration for all classes will begin December 19th.  

Through the years, in times of deepest grief or anguish, music has always been my lifelong companion and friend that was there with me, sustaining me.  I have listened to many different favorites over the past week, and it has helped.  I received this video tonight from a Youtube friend and thought I would share it with everyone in hopes that it gives you almost three minutes of enjoyable, restful listening and viewing as it did me.  Enjoy!

Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been posting less lately.  There is a reason for that.  Since October 13th, my family has been going through one of life’s seasons – the deterioration, illness and hospitalization of a parent.  In this instance, it has been my mother-in-law, Louise Williams. 

I have had the privilege of knowing her since 1970.  For 33 years, I have been honored to claim her as my mother-in-law.  She has been a model and an inspiration to me of what a loving, caring daughter, sister, wife, mother, mother-in-law and grandmother should be.

Tonight Martha Louise Hollingsworth Williams passed from this life and into eternity with her Savior, Jesus Christ.  She is now with many loved ones and friends who have gone on before.  We were blessed to have her here on this earth for 84 years.  She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.  I will always be thankful every day of my life that she was the mother of my husband, grandmother to my children, and my mother-in-law.
