Hey Google, Thank you for Making my Life Easier

Hello Google

My life is pretty hectic and anything that I can do to make my life even a little bit easier, is a welcome thing.  Several years ago we discovered Google Home assistant. We started off with a few Google Nest mini devices and expanded to include a Google Nest (with a screen).  Now we have several devices in our home and of course on our phone/computers/tablets.   I have found that using Google has been extremely helpful in my chaotic, busy life as a parent.  From helping me keep track of things I need, places I need to be, soothing music and ease of setting alarms and controlling our smart home devices.  I only access a fraction of the commands that the Google Assistant is capable of.

Here are several useful google commands to help make your life easier.
