You Are My Sunshine

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey

 Kathy and MomI woke up this morning singing that song-remembering my mom singing it to me often so many years ago. She has been gone for nearly 30 years but when I sing that song I can still feel the vibration of love that she gave to me. I recently heard my sister Terry singing it to her new grandchild, Wylie.
Seeing her dance around with this new baby brought back so many memories of watching my mom do the same thing with my brother Eddie. I don’t think she realized then the value of what she was teaching us by singing to us.
Recently, I attended my nephew Jared’s wedding. It couldn’t have been more beautiful; everything was perfect the venue, the band, the food and the ceremony. Yet there was something else, a special feeling in the room that day. As I looked around at my six siblings and my 20 nieces and nephews I felt it… I felt the vibration of love, my mother’s love in the room that night. And I got the message loud and clear that when you vibrate love to your children it continues on years after you’re gone from this planet. It still vibrates through your children to the next generation and beyond. So whether it’s playing a game, going for a walk, helping with homework or sharing a meal together, take time to vibrate love. In the end that’s what matters most… that we feel loved.

You’ll never know dear how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away…

    That was beautiful, Kathy! My mom also sang to us, and later on, sang the same songs to our children. Happy Mother’s Day from a fellow Wayne Hills alum!
