It is Mother’s Day and all of you who are lucky enough to have living mothers, please remember them today. If nothing else give them a call and tell them how lucky you were to have them as a mom. Of course, I had the best Mom in the whole wide world. I sure hope she knew how I felt. I am sure I didn’t tell her enough and even though she had to be disappointed in me a few times, she always loved me dearly. When she had to move out of her home, she was too stubborn to move in with me down here in Texas. She said that she was born in Pennsylvania and she was going to die in Pennsylvania. So she chose to move into an assisted living home near where she grew up and close to where other relatives lived. I can understand her decision although I would have preferred that she live with me, I owed her more than I could ever repay.
Did your mother have a “special” song that she sung to you when you were very small? My mother did and I can still here her singing it to me and I get a tear in my eye. It is “You Are My Sunshine”. Do you remember that song? Have you ever heard it? It has been around for a long time. In fact, it was first recorded in 1939. I don’t know when it was written. I suppose you could say that was my Mother’s and my song. Funny what you remember from when you were little.
