Today we are celebrating a HUGE thing. It's my mom's first anniversary of her quitting smoking.
She was able to do so after 40 yrs of smoking and us hassling her to finally quit. She kept saying she would do it when SHE chose to. And a year ago, she chose to!!!!
I am so proud of her!
So, to make her day special, I grabbed my guitar and I wrote a little song for her. It is pretty silly, and quite a bit of inside jokes, but here it is.
[this is really HER success, but my part of the success if that I finally grabbed the guitar again and "composed" something]
[OK, here you can get an idea of the melody, but I am warning you, it was shot in 30 sec -that is all I am allowed to record - and only to pass it on to my brothers and sisters to sing it tonight. Here it is... :)
