Posts Tagged ‘Happy Birthday Mom’

I grew up with divorced parents, back in the day when 90% of marriages / parents stayed together.  My mom raised my sister, brother and me all on her own.  It was difficult.  We were a handful.  I appreciate it more every year (particularly now that my own three are full grown).  The song / video below is about a dad who looks after his son.  When I hear it, though, I hear a song about a parent / provider who looks after his (or her) children.  Happy 92nd Birthday, mom.  Thanks for being my role model.
Love,
Kevin

My father once told me that respect for the truth comes close to being the basis for all morality.  “Something cannot emerge from nothing,” he said.  This is profound thinking if you understand how unstable the truth can be.
