My husband and I love to spend time with our four grown children and their families. We also like to visit different places in the world. I enjoy sewing, reading, swimming and of course, singing!
My love for music was greatly influenced by my mother and grandmother. They had a song for everything! Mom and Grandma would often belt out a note to emphasize something important (and I find myself doing the same)! I grew up singing a song for every situation and borrowing tunes to help me remember things. As the oldest of five girls I remember my mother volunteering us to sing and fill in for others at church as last minute substitutes. Music is not only a powerful learning tool, but it is also a wonderful way to help express what we are feeling. To borrow a phrase from Michael McLean, "Music is the soundtrack for my life."
