“I remember my mother's prayers and they have always
followed me. They have clung to me all my life.”

 - Abraham Lincoln
(12 Feb 1809 - 15 Apr 1865)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   We're remembering our mothers today - as we try to do every year. I could find no midi file for today's song (and I personally could not hear it even if I had been able to do so), but the lyrics (printed below, as always) were simply too good to ignore, so just watch the bonus video:

Recorded by Good Charlotte, 200_


I'm sitting here, I'm thinking back to a time when I was young,
My memory is clear as day, I'm listening to the dishes clink,
You were downstairs; you would sing songs of praise,
And all the times we laughed with you,
And all the times that you stayed true to us,
Now we say, I said, I thank you,
I'll always thank you,
More than you could know,
Than I could ever show,
And I love you, I'll always love you,
There's nothing I won't do to say these words to you,
That you're beautiful forever,
You were my mom,
You were my dad,
The only thing I ever had was you, It's true,
And even when the times got hard you were there,
To let us know that we'd get through, you showed me how to be a man,
You taught me how to understand the things people do,
You showed me how to love my God,
You taught me that not everyone knows the truth,
And I thank you,
I'll always thank you,
More than you could know,
Than I could ever show,
And I love you, I'll always love you,
There's nothing I won't do to say these words to you,
That you will live forever, always
