My Mother's Love
If there were a contest for all the Mothers of the world,
Mother Dear you'd take first place,
You'd bring home every single award;
But how could they compare you for no one could come close;
'Cause you're the best as best can be and your love shines through on us.
Who can say they never had a babysitter in their life;
Who can say they skipped kindergarten
'Cause their Mom wanted them at home;
We played games together,
You spent so much time with us;
You taught us more than any teacher could and you taught it from your heart.
We were poor, but we wouldn't trade our Mother's Love for all the riches on this earth........
And we thank God for the Best Mother in this world.....
'Cause you're the best as best can be and Your Love shines through on us,
And Mother Dear We Love You With All Our Hearts.
from your youngest daughter,
Emily Mae

Short Song Description:
A song about an old fashioned, loving Mother who stayed home with her children and loved it and was always there for them.
Story Behind the Song:
This song was written in a dream- I woke up, picked up my guitar, and sang and played this song- I never changed a word or note. The baby in the end of the song is my beautiful niece who was looking at a pix of me at the time I taped her- she called me and her mother both "Momma" for a whole year. This song is dedicated to the memory of our wonderful Mother, E. Marie Holt, who passed away on Mother's Day weekend-2000- this was the last song she heard before she died.
