Carol Maples

Yesterday was my mother-in-law's birthday. She would have been 29....again. She always claimed to be 29, which made it difficult to explain when her kids got to be older than she. Then she claimed she adopted them when she was just a child herself. She was funny.

She and I had a lot of fun together and she was one of my best friends. We loved playing piano duets together and I'm so thankful we have a couple of them on video. It's a little long, so if you don't want to watch the whole thing, just go to the end because we ALWAYS had a good laugh at the end. It made it really hard to ever play in public because we couldn't help cracking up at the end. Yesterday was a hard day. But today I'm trying to remember the laughs. I miss her alot.
