I have songs that carry special meaning for me as a mother. Whether it's a song I sang to them as babies or a song I think of as they graduate high school....each song fills my mind with warm memories and my heart with unconditional love.
I have been blessed with 3 amazing, beautiful children and have also been blessed with a wonderful, beautiful 'bonus' daughter. I still find it hard to believe that God would trust ME, with all my weaknesses and mistakes, to care for these precious souls. Being their mother is a job I was in NO WAY prepared for but the best job I have have ever had with daily rewards that are utterly priceless.
Today is Cinco de Mayo and there will be hundreds of Americanized celebrations across the land even though most probably don't even know what is being celebrated. It is a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride in the U.S.
Today is Mother's Day and mothers all over the country are receiving gifts. But for most mothers, like me, it's not about the gifts or cards we get but the memories our children have given to us over the years. Some of my most precious memories involve music.
Today is National Kazoo Day! On this date back in 1840, in Macon, Georgia, The Kazoo was born. And for all those of us who never learned to play a musical instrument, we are rejoicing - because the Kazoo makes us feel like we are part of the band.
When you think about the music business today, you probably don't think about how whistling has played a part in music over the years. Whistling is something that most of us can do to some extent and there are some of us who are very good whistlers and more of us who are not good whistlers.
