Mother’s Day 2021
No one can object to a day that celebrates moms. Yet on a day when so many are celebrating their mothers, many others are missing theirs.
I miss my mom daily. And so, because the pressures of the day call me to them, today I’ll just leave you with three great songs about missing. Different genres. Different motivations. And yet recognizably about the same thing.
Words make you think a thought.
Music makes you feel a feeling.
A song makes you feel a thought.
Today, I’ll help my kids celebrate their mom. And I’ll feel a thought about my own.
You’re Missing–Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band (2002)
Missing You–John Waite (1984)
Wayfaring Stranger–Emmylou Harris (1980)
