Jim Adams has a weekly challenge called Song Lyric Sunday and this week’s theme is Mother/Mom/Flowers. I have posted flower songs before, so I looked up songs for or about mothers. Some were too sappy (like Elvis Presley’s Mama Liked the Roses), the one I actually like the best is depressing (John Lennon’s Mother), and none of them fit my relationship with my mother.
So I found this tongue-in-cheek song and decided to use it – and the video contains the lyrics! It’s The Mom’s Song by Ashley Tisdale.
As a tribute to my own mom (who did say many of these things, but perhaps in her own unique way!), here is a collage of pictures of my mother, Margot, from my archives. My mother passed away in December 2014.
