In my previous post I shared with you a video of my friend Janelle Johnson, who is the Director of the Prelude Campus in Woodbury, singing to my Mother for the holidays.  I was taken back by her generosity but did not hesitate to say “YES!”  I knew my Mother would love it and this video is proof of that.  Music always awakens her.  I thought I would share some still photos as well which capture the various “moments” in time as Mom listened and interacted with Janelle.  I hope you enjoy wonderful holiday gift not only was my Mother given, but it is one I will forever be able to cherish.
