Ever notice how Mother’s Day takes precedence over Father’s Day? It’s a much more important holiday for some reason. Actually we all know why it’s more important don’t we? Most of us naturally just get more attention from their mothers than they did from their fathers. Fathers were out making the doughnuts I guess. It isn’t so much like now as it was when I grew up, but a home just suffers without the presence of a good mom. My own father was a good man at the end of the day, but I feel like life just steamrolled him while he was alive. I can relate sometimes. My mother bore the brunt of all of our family history with dignity and grace. My father has been deceased some 24 years now. Man that seems like a long time. My mother? She just keeps motoring. Four kids and the weight of the world on her shoulders and still she keeps pushin’ on. I hope I just didn’t quote a little known R.E.O. Speedwagon track there.
Last year’s Mother’s Day post garnered a lot feedback so I thought I’d do it again. Why fix what isn’t broke? Truthfully though I’m running out of tunes for Mom. I could go find 30 more next year, but I’m beginning to reach. I may have trouble replicating the quality of music, but it’s the thought that counts. I know I say it every year, but you Rock Mom. Hope this Mother’s Day is better than the last. Even though many of these tracks are not your idea of a good time, they are my idea of paying tribute. Happy Mother’s Day to everyone!
