My Dad and my Daughter
I have always taken my dad’s advice without question, and thus far, he has never steered me wrong. His voice echoes in my thoughts with every decision I make.
“If something is worth doing, it’s worth doing properly.” And, “Quit ye like a man son, quit ye like a man.”
These words run through my veins, and they influence the way I raise my daughter. This picture fills me with pride. To see my father so proud of the child I have raised makes me realise how influential he has been in my life.
I love you dad.
Happy Fathers Day
I remember listening intently to my mother when she used to sing to me as a child. Somehow I still remember all the lullaby’s she used to croon, including “Cowboys don’t cry”. (She’ll know what I’m talking about) 🙂
This particular version of “Somewhere over the rainbow” by Eva Cassidy is my favorite. Her guitar playing is delicately beautiful, and her voice is like velvet. I could listen to her for hours, like I could my mum.
The connection I make with this song and my mother is probably not unique. I’m sure many people are reminded of their mom when they hear this tune.
But… No one has the same connection that I do with my mum, and that makes it special.
Happy Mothers Day Mum
I Love You.
