Sunday's Song- Somebody's Hero

If you're lucky enough to still have your Mother with you today, be sure to tell her you love her and take the time to appreciate her!  I didn't really, and it's too late for me now. 

The song I chose for today isn't a hymn, but a country song about a mother and daughter.  I hope everyone has a Happy and Blessed Mother's Day!

Somebody's Hero

She's never pulled anyone from a burning building
She's never rocked Central Park to a half a million fans, screaming out her name
She's never hit a shot to win the game
She's never left her footprints on the moon
She's never made a solo hot air balloon ride, around the world,
No, she's just your everyday average girl (but)

She's somebody's hero
A hero to her baby with a skinned up knee
A little kiss is all she needs
The keeper of the cheerios
The voice that brings Snow White to life
Bedtime stories every night
And that smile lets her know
She's somebody's hero

She didn't get a check every week like a nine-to fiver
But she's been a waiter, and a cook and a taxi driver
For twenty years, there at home, until the day her girl was grown
Giving all her love to her was her life's ambition
But now her baby's movin' on, and she'll soon be missin' her
But not today, those are tears of joy runnin' down her face

She's somebody's hero
A hero to her daughter in her wedding dress
She gave her wings to leave the nest
It hurts to let her baby go down the aisle she walks right by
Looks back into her mother's eyes
And that smile lets her know oh oh oh
She's somebody's hero

Thirty years have flown right past
Her daughters' starin' at all the photographs
Of her mother, and she wishes she could be like that
Oh, but she already is

She's somebody's hero
A hero to her mother in a rockin' chair
She runs a brush through her silver hair
The envy of the nursing home
She drops by every afternoon
Feeds her mother with a spoon
And that smile lets her know oh oh
Her mother's smile lets her know oh oh
She's somebody's hero

Such sweet and true lyrics. I wonder at how many mothers throughout history are unnamed but shaped our generations for the best by simply doing what was best for their families,sacrificing for their children, loving and praying for them .

This is lovely. I thought I was a good daughter and I still do, but there was so much more I could have done. Wishing you a wonderful Mother's Day!

I know what you mean. We all have a little bit of guilt in that regard, I think. I know I wished I had spent more time with my dad while I had it. :(

Happy Mother's Day, Nancy!

Thanks for the song words Nancy.

A friend reminded me the other day how important it is to live with no regrets. I know that if either of my parents passed right now, that I would have regrets. I think I'm being moved to act while I have the chance.

Ahh, that's us:) It's what we learn when we think we know it all that really counts. Thanks Nancy.
