    Mirth and Music Monday: Linda Schrader

    If you are a mother I think you will love this song by Linda Schrade. I heard it while I was working in an ECE classroom last week. I fell in love wit this song. Kind of a Day: Linda Schrade Makes me feel so HAPPY. It makes makes me want to hug and squeeze and snuggle my girls!! I know it’s a sleepy song because it’s from a lullaby CD. Thanks for our great host, Rose for hosting the Mirth and Music Monday blog hop. You can check out more videos and even join in the fun, HERE.

    Mirth and Music Monday – Aug 15th

      Though it’s Mirth and Music Monday, you will probably listen to this next song and wonder WHY would I choose this one. I am choosing to play this song because, for me, this song is extremely encouraging. Life is hard, and this song doesn’t deny that. It encourages us to give our worries to God because He is the one in control.

I’ve…

    I’ll tell you a secret. My favorite poems and songs are those that tell a story. Sure, I appreciate plenty of poems and stories that are more symbolic or figurative, but I have always been drawn to poems and songs that actually have a plot, if that makes any sense.

    Mirth and Music Monday: Merry Christmas

    Thanks to Rose D’Andrea for hosting Mirth and Music Monday. We all need a little smile and a laugh to start off our week. I heard this song the other day on the Holiday music for children Pandora station. I couldn’t stop laughing.  I’ve heard some ridiculous Christmas songs over the years, but this one I’ve never heard before. On a side note, I also heard that stupid song, I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas, which I hear year after year. (SO ridiculous) and my husband says he’s never heard that song before. Go figure 🙂 I love funny, ridiculous Christmas…
