Today is a special day because it marks a major milestone for the woman who inspired this blog...My mommy! My mommy turns the big 6-5 today and is going strong, with a few aches, here and there! In celebration of her special day, I thought I would share one of her favorite loves (and mine too) Music! With that said, I recently watched a wonderful documentary about the legendary soul singer, Bill Withers. Mr. Withers hails from a small coal-mining town in West Virginia, where he faced many obstacles, but made his way out via the army and somehow stumbled upon the world of singing and what a voice and message he had. Hits like Lovely Day, Lean on Me and Grandma's Hands are still played and sampled today and remain timeless. If you have an opportunity to see this film, I highly recommend it! For more info go here! I watched via instant Netflix, but you may be able to find on You Tube or Itunes!!! I know you will enjoy and be moved!
Happy Birthday, Mommy!!! Wishing you many more to come!!!
Live Long and Love!!!!!!!!!!!
