Mother dear, I love you so. Your happy, smiling face
Is such a joy to look at; it makes home a lovely place.
This is the song the speakers filled our car with this morning when I pulled out of the garage to drive my son to school.... immediately after I had just lectured him about dilly-dallying in the morning. Needless to say, I felt a little silly and a little undeserving and I had half a mind to turn the music off, but I was afraid of drawing my son's attention to the irony as well.
I guess I got a lecture this morning too.
