Today is my Mom’s birthday, so I picked this song out especially for her. It came out in 2008; I remember that, because just a few weeks after I heard it for the first time, my mother had to unexpectedly bid a final farewell to her youngest child. From that point on, this song has been a poignant reminder to me of how precious the bond between mothers and their children is, no matter their age. Unfortunately, in 2017 we lost our second daughter, Michelle. Now this song means even more to me.
