I’m feeling a bit nostalgic. I miss my Mom and I wanted to go visit her next weekend (It’s a five hour drive to her house) but I could not get anyone to take my shift at the hospital so I can’t go. Bummer. Mom and I became much closer after I finished my teenage years, and I have realized what a jerk of a teenage daughter I was then, but she always freely gave me her love and cared for me in spite of my brattiness. Thanks Mom!!! As a child she would occasionally sing a song to me as a lullaby and I remember feeling very comforted when she did it. Once we were sitting in the car in the early evening, waiting for who knows what, but she stroked my hair and sang this song to me. I have always remembered those tender moments with my Mom. I found out recently this was a hit in the 40’s! Perry Como did it, also Dean Martin, and a few other artists of the era. I found a rendition on You Tube to share with you…..Here’s the song:
The Alphabet Lullaby
A- You’re adorable
B -you’re so beautiful
C -you’re the cutest thing I know
D -you’re a darling and
E -you’re exciting and
F -you’re the fairest in the world.
G -you look good to me
H -you’re so heavenly
I -you’re the one I idolize
J -we’re like Jack and Jill
K -you’re so kissable
L -is the love light in you’re eyes
M, N, O, P, I could go on all day…..
Q, R, S, T, Alphabetically speaking, you’re O.K.
U- make my life complete
V- means you’re very sweet
W, X, Y, Z,
Its fun to wander through, the alphabet with you
To tell you what you mean to me.
