Oh, back to the kids’ music teacher – kind of. I’m full of complaints, I guess. Well, actually, I do have one praise. In addition to learning about the great composers, the kids have also spent this fall learning about Elvis Presley, the Beatles, and some other, more recent singers. My kids have all liked that and now when they hear snippets of old music in commercials or whatever they can pick out who is singing sometimes. So – they’ve learned something at school this year, anyway. Not sure it’s something that’s necessarily needful for a successful life, but I’ll take anything I can get right now.
Surviving early and unexpected widowhood, single parenting, adoption, special needs parenthood...I cover it all as I muse on the unexpected twists and daily minutia of my life. It's also a place where I can publicly echo the words of the psalmist in Psalm 40:2, "He brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock and established my goings."
