Mother Like Mine



She's the sky that holds the clouds. She's the lady of the house; a blind believer in all I dare to be. There's no safer place I've found than the shoulder of her white night gown. Oh I've got the best and the worst of her in me.

And I'd share her if I could


So the wars would all be over, 'cause she'd raise us all as friends. And no one would ever wonder if somebody wanted them. We'd walk on grass that's greener, and our cares would all be freer... if the world had a mother like mine


still one of my all time favorite pictures of mom and Audrey. Taken five years ago.

She's our father's one great love; she's the one he wanted most. She's the light in the window of the house I grew up in. She takes the midnight call. She's the bravest of us all; still she sings in the garden she lets her hair down in.

Oh the wars would all be over, 'cause she'd raise us all as friends. And no one would ever wonder if somebody wanted them. Tonight would be easier, and our dreams would all be deeper... if the world had a mother like mine.


The day brought our now nine month old baby home from the hospital. Mama was there the whole time.

She's the sky that holds the clouds. She's the lady of our house. We all need her, but no one more than me.

Oh the wars would all be over, 'cause she'd raise us all as friends. And no one would ever wonder if somebody wanted them. We'd walk on grass that's greener, and the dishes would all be cleaner... if the world had a mother like mine.

Happy Birthday, Mama. I love you more than applesauce pizza.

The words in this post are lyrics from a song by The Band Perry called Mother Like Mine. While they aren't my original thoughts, I agree 100% and think they describe my mother beautifully.
