Mother’s Day 2014

After working all morning on a beautiful drawing of me, Tommy is now in the basement stretching for his run, and he chose to play “Baby Mine” from Dumbo as his stretching music (by Steve Tyrell, one of Tommy’s very favourite Disney cover artists, which makes it even more beautiful to listen to  And today, Mother’s Day, the lyrics ring so true, it brings a tear to my eye.

“Baby mine, don’t you cry
Baby mine, dry your eyes
Rest your head close to my heart
Never to part, baby of mine

Little one when you play
Don’t you mind what they say
Let those eyes sparkle and shine
Never a tear, baby of mine

If they knew sweet little you
They’d end up loving you too
All those same people who scold you
What they’d give just for

The right to hold you
From your head to your toes
You’re so sweet, goodness knows
You are so precious to me
Sweet as can be, baby of mine”

Wishing all the moms out there much love. And especially those with a special needs child, no matter how much you are struggling to believe things will be ok, trust me, your child will learn to fly. That magic feather is there in the least expected places. The magic is the love in your heart.
