videoCedar started piano lessons yesterday. I am so excited for the timing. The other 2 boys that he plays the most with also started taking lessons so he is sooo excited to play. Today he asked if he could practice. (I guess so, just this once!) I know he won't always be so excited, but it's nice that he likes it.

On another note. Olive came home sick from school today. She threw up as we were walking to the car. Poor girl. There is only one more day of school left for her.

She

She
(Cherie Call)

She is not the picture on the magazine
She's the woman just behind you at the checkout stand
She may appear to be common but she mystifies
In all the ways the wisest men and children understand
'Cause she has eyes that sparkle with her love
And she has a smile that's as gentle as a dove
And no woman from a movie or an ad could ever hope to be
As beautiful as she

She is not a highly honored diplomat
Held responsible to lead the world to peace
But what she does is every bit as serious
Amidst the turmoil everywhere that will never cease
'Cause she has hands that wipe the tears away
And she has a voice that makes everything O.K.
And no woman from the papers or T.V. could ever hope to be
As indispensable as she

And it breaks my heart every time I see her wonder
If she means anything in this world that pulls her under
And she doesn't always see the way that Heaven smiles above her
That's the reason I try to always tell her that I love her

'Cause she may not be known for giving millions
To the charities and auctions on the news
But I believe she's given more than anyone
In all the times she's ever had to choose
To give up sleep to rock her children every night
And give her heart to always hold their dreams so tight
And the best that you or I could ever hope to be
Is as wonderful as she
And the best that you or I could ever hope to be
Is as wonderful as she


If I could sing, I would sing this to my mom. When I think back on my life she had always been there in the background. Letting me take center stage. But in truth, it is easy to be in the spotlight when there is a mom like mine keeping everything together. Thank you mom! I love you!

Marie introduced Cherie Call to me. The very talented woman who wrote and sings this song. She is my favorite singer / songwriter. That's how Marie is. Jonathon and I were talking the other day about something and Marie came up. He said something that I think is the greatest tribute to any mother anywhere. He said, "I can't think of a single instance where my mom has not supported me." It is true. But not just for Jonathon, for all of us.

Happy Mothers day to all of the Mothers in my life. You have shaped me. I love you!

(You can hear part of the song here! http://www.cheriecall.com/albums/songs/stars/She.html)
