    Happy mother's day momma. You were my mom, dad, grandma, and grandpa at the sametime. This was always one of mommas favorites.

      Great idea Gulf- My mom raised my sister and I alone working 2 jobs, always putting us first and doing without for herself. Happy Mothers Day, I miss you.
      She loved music and Ray Charles was one of her favorites.

        Blue Bayou reminds me of my mom. I have a fond memory of her singing it when I was a little kid.

          Happy Mother's day to CD and any/all the other mothers on GC.

          Happy Mother's day to my mom as well. Even though she is gone I still miss her and honor her daily.

            While sitting around chatting and celebrating mother's day with my mother, brother, his wife and daughter and her daughter today, my daughter called and informed me she was pregnant again. Immediately after hanging up with her, my son called to inform me his wife is pregnant too. Seems the WuFlu causes pregnancy. Who knew? Seems sometime in December within about 2 weeks I'll go from having one grandson to having 3 grandchildren. How does this relate to Mother's Day you ask? Well, I guess just that 2 new mothers are joining the ranks of motherhood (except my daughter is already a mother but I just left that part out because it didn't fit the narrative:)).

              Then go deep, I mean real deep into the archives and find that song that you played for your daughter when she was young, or one that your mother may have shared with you and post it brother!

                  My mother loved to sing, and would sing to us often as kids while playing her Gibson J-55 (acoustic guitar). She passed away when I was 13, but left an indelible mark on my heart. The one song I'll always remember her playing, she used as a lullaby. Part of me likes to believe she was listening when I did the same for my daughters. Here's to you, Mom.

                    First Mother's Day without my mom. We had an amazing day on the water with all the extended family. But it wasnt the same.

                      Sorry Brad. I'm sure it was tough. I'm afraid I'll be in the same shoes next year. I hope not, but it's not looking good. Her Parkinson's has her at a point where I can't leave her alone anymore. She gets lost in her own home.
