For My Mom

This was my Top 5 Shower Re-Cap yesterday in honor of my incredible mother's birthday!

Civil War

by Guns n Roses

This coundown is dedicated to my mother. This is her favorite song, or at least one of them. The Gunners were always her favorite and she has deep love for Slash.

I'll never forget that when she was pregnant with my baby sister she would be cleaning and this was the first song in her playlist. After she was born my baby sister when she heard this song or the vaccum sweeper she would drop wherever she was and fall asleep.


by Brooks & Dunn

It was between this song and 'Amazing Grace' by Chris Tomlin, but this song reminds me more of my mother than the other one did. She's a wise woman and I know that others need to know that wisdom. Even me at times.


by Amy Castle

When I first heard this song I had to play it for my mother because it reminded me so much of her. She is always doing wonderful silly things and I love her so much for it. When I say I was blessed with a great mom, I'm not kidding at all.

Moon River

by Audrey Hepburn

My mother picked this song for me and so I picked this one of her too. If it weren't for my mother's love of old movies and anything in techni-color I would not adore so many great movies, including this one. I love watching old movies with her and this song always brings a smile to my face.

Take Me Home, Country Roads

by John Denver

You should all know what a sap I am by now, so it is no surprise this song can make me cry. It is not my mother's favorite John Denver song, but this one reminds me of her because when I think of home I think of her and my dad. So even though this song may be about West Virginia when I hear it I see them.

Happy Birthday my beloved momma!
