Happy Mother's day

I got home from work at about 2 am to find two beautiful homemade Mother's day cards on the table, with a dish of my favorite sugar free candy and peanuts (my girls definitely know my snacking habits!) I feel very blessed today already.

I have always loved Faith Hill's song "You can't lose me." However, this song became very special to me after my girls were born. When my girls were very tiny and in seperate hospital NICUs, I knew that God was taking care of them, and I didn't even need to be there. Even so, I hated when I couldn't be with them. Even now, I don't like to be away from them for too long. I remember singing this song to Paige the first time they let me hold her. I wanted her to know that even when I couldn't be by her side, I loved her and was there for her. This song always comes back to me on mothers day. For some reason, it also makes me think of my own mother, and what an encouragement she has been to me. I always want my mother to know how much I love her, and how just like my girls, she can't lose me either! Happy mothers day mom!

A little girl, a little small for her age
A little too slow for the field day race
Momma’s waiting at the finish line
And wipes the teardrops from her eyes
She says, you did just fine honey, that’s okay
Sometimes life’s just that way
You’re gonna lose the race from time to time
But you’re always gonna find
You can’t lose me
Bet your life
I am here and I will always be
Just a wish away
Wherever you go
No matter how far
My love is where you are
You won’t be lost if you believe
You can’t lose me
Momma use to say girl it won’t be long’til it’s time to go out on your own
Chase your dreams find your place in life
I know you’ll do just fine
When that day finally came
There were things she needed to but could not say
So I whispered softly as I wiped
The tears from momma’s eyes
You can’t lose me
Bet your life
I am here and I will always be
Just a wish away
Wherever I go
No matter how far
My love is where you are
You won’t be lost if you believe
You can’t lose me

Hey San, that's sweet...I never really paid much attention to the words to that song, but they are really appropriate! Happy Mother's Day!
