followed me. They have clung to me all my life.”

 - Abraham Lincoln

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:

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 05/08/15:

“There is no one perfect way to be a good mother. Each situation is unique. Each mother has different challenges, different skills and abilities, and certainly different children. The choice is different and unique for each mother and each family... What matters is that a mother loves her children deeply and, in keeping with the devotion she has for God and her husband, prioritizes them above all else.

- M. Russell Ballard, April, 2008

It read – “Darling, please DO NOT touch the rose. I'm using its stem to unclog the drain.”

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
