July 27, 2013

In the Dailyness of Life ... Special moments that bring peace to the soul

July 27, 2013

In addition to my profession as counselor, I enjoy visiting a local nursing home when my schedule allows it – not only to visit my dear mother who is a resident there, but to bring some smiles to the faces of others as well.
As a young child, my mother often played the piano.
She had many years of experience and her various renditions came from her heart.
Sometimes she played songs that were tricky in timing.
Other times, she played slow and with depth from her spirit.
