My Mother's Day Song, Dedicated To My "Mami"

Happy Belated Mother's Day!!!  I think my Mother's Day gift to myself was not stressing about getting this posted a little late.  AND not stressing about it being perfect.  I finally got it recorded at 11:15 Sunday night once the kids were all asleep, so it's the thought that counts. :)

As a Happy Mother's Day wish to all the women who read my blog (you ARE STILL a mother even if you don't have kids of your own!  I know lots of different women are loving examples helping me raise my kids...) I'm sharing a song I wrote about mothers.  I dedicate it to my incredible "Mami."

The lyrics are below, although I didn't sing them perfectly, and that's OK.  I didn't sing the notes perfectly and that's OK too.  My goal this year is to do more things IMPERFECTLY so that more GOOD things get done!  Thing about how much more we would do for others if we didn't fear imperfection.  :)  So don't expect Celine Dion (I'm not Canadian.) :)  But do expect to hear a woman who respects and adores her Mami and many Moms all over this universe!

Love, Eva

P.S. Gotta love the greasy kid finger-prints all over my guitar-proof I'm a working mom!  Yes, they like "playing" too...especially baby Sam!




"Mami"


Verse 1:  Mother Teacher
               Hugger Healer
               Lullaby Singer
              Angels are near her

Chorus: These are a few
            Of the words you
            Could use to describe her
            I must admit
            The truth is
            I've grown to idolize her
           'Cause even when
           She's not tryin'
           Her precious love shows
           She's closer to heaven than she knows
           She's closer to heaven than she knows

Verse 2: Giver Baker
              Dreamer Smilemaker
              Sister Fighter
              Faith glows inside her

Repeat Chorus

Final Chorus: And on those less than
                     Perfect Days when
                     Doubts rise up inside her
                     I pray she knows
                     My greatest hope
                     Is to be more like her
                     'Cause even when
                    She's not tryin'
                    Her precious love shows
                    She's closer to heaven than she knows
                    She's closer to heaven than she knows
                    Oh, Mamma, you're
                    Closer to heaven than you know
