Monday Nights with Betty Kaiser

For the past several months, we've spent all of our family home evenings with Betty. We love how she greets us every week with hugs and kisses. She loves us to sing so we always have an opening and closing song. But the lessons have varied. Some of our favorites are the ones Betty has come up with and planned and refined all through the week. She spends a lot of time thinking about the kids--what they'd like to know and what they need to know--and sifting through her library for just the right stories. Peter loves her red book of poetry. It doesn't matter one bit to him that she forgets which ones he's already heard. Those have become his favorites--The Touch of the Master's Hand, Mr. Nobody, The World is Mine, The Gingham Dog and the Calico Cat. We've heard a lot of stories about Lowell--his integrity and his generosity and we know all about Betty's childhood and young adulthood--the choices she made that made all the difference. We hear a lot about her children and grandchildren--her treasures. Betty is full of gratitude--for her happy life with Lowell and their children, for Anita and all she does for her, for her neighbors, for the gospel, for our ward--especially the youth and even for us--just for coming to be loved and taught every week by her.

About Me

There are no joys to compare with family. The experiences and feeling associated with family run so deep. Little moments are filled with meaning. They are the people who know us best and who we know best and who will be forever. This blog is a collection of the experiences that we can remember--the ones that happen on earth. I think our associations began long before and maybe the best is yet to be. Brigham Young says that our mortal experience is dreary compared to what is to come. I'm glad I can't see ahead because my life is anything but dreary. These people are my light and my joy.
