As we returned from the roadtrip to North Carolina, this iconic song came on the radio and mom began serenading ME, her eldest child, as she used to do when I was a little girl. It was the best Father’s day I’ve ever had…because it was with my moma! Fore she the one who sacrificed to hold down our household when Dad didn’t treat us (mainly mom) correctly. This was a memory that will stay with me for as long as I live. I had almost forgotten that she used to sing this song to my brother and I, until that moment.
Mom shared how she used to buy the latest albums whenever she had a little extra money. She also seemed proud of the collection that she had acquired and devastated that her mother gave them all away while she was away at college.
Needless to say the love for music was honestly passed onto her child.
