Life is full of moments. Moments of quiet. Moments of laughter or tears. Moments of pure bliss. Moments of fear. There are moments that seem mundane on the outside and yet change your life forever. Our lives are full of moments.
There is a moment that a lot of us experience in our lifetime. Its a particular moment that we all can share. Those that have experienced it know it. Its a special moment. The moment when you see your child, or your grandchild. Or perhaps when you see your little niece or nephew, baby brother or sister for the first time. It is a moment that your heart captures a picture of and then stores it in the scrapbook of your life's memories. Its a very special moment. An unforgettable moment.
I remember when my daughter went into labour with my first grandson.... yes I am a grandma of two grandsons ... actually I'm a 'Glamma'. Anyway, when my daughter went into labour I received a phone call. She said "It's happening mama, you better come over here." She lives 5 hours away. I drove like a maniac on the highway. Memories flooding my mind the entire time I drove. Things I hadn't thought of in years and had thought long forgotten. Songs that I had sung to her. Rocking her to sleep. Pushing her on the swing. Bedtime stories I had told. It was like my life was flashing before my eyes.
When I arrived at the hospital I walked into the delivery room as little Jack was being born. It was surreal. My baby was having a baby. I couldn't quite wrap my head around it. I felt so much love I thought I was going to burst.
Two years later my daughter had a second little boy Adam. I was there for his birth as well. The memories of my grandsons being born are engraved in my mind forever. I can conjure them at will, as I can for the arrival of my own children.
I wrote a song about that very moment. I tried to capture the feelings and somehow put them into words. It called "The Moment" and I want to give it to you as a gift from me.
Mother's Day approaches. I know I'm not the only parent or grandparent out there who feels this way. So, I want to share this special song with you. I hope you like it. Please feel free to copy the MP3 and share it with anyone you think may like it. And by all means, tell me what you think of it. I'd love to hear from you! Comment. Share. It's all good.
My mother's day gift to you - "The Moment"
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY - AND HAPPY MAY - (may Spring show up soon)
