Songs for my Mother
I have a compiled a list of songs that remind me of my Mother, songs she loves to sing, even though as she admits herself she cannot sing.
I have fond memories of my Mum singing songs to me and my sister, my favourite being Kookaburra Sits on the Old Gum Tree.
I won't see my Mum this Mothers Day, she lives too far away. But I will be thinking of her and counting myself lucky I had such a wonderful childhood and hoping I can be as great a Mum as her as I start out on my own journey through motherhood.
So to all the Mothers out there, young and old, have a wonderful Mothers Day and to all those Mums in waiting wishing you lots and lots of baby dust.
