Good morning, Daughters.

I recently discovered some beautiful music by Donna Taggart. The lyrics of her song, “Mom,” wonderfully describe the characteristics of a Godly mother. For example, “… she is a loving angel, tender, tough, & strong, … whose only goal in life is making sure her children will be alright, … she’ll teach you everything you’ll ever need to know, … and she’ll put you on the path that will bring you back to Me.”

These lyrics remind me of the blessing that you three are to my grandchildren, and so I dedicate this song to you on this Mother’s Day.

I love you so much!
Dad

Check it out, “Mom,” by Donna Taggart.

Mom

Little baby told God, hey I’m kind of scared
I don’t really know if I want to go down there
From here it looks like a little blue ball
It’s a great big place, and I’m so small
Why can’t I just stay here with you
Did I make you mad, don’t you want me too
God said child, of course I do
But there’s somebody special waiting for you

So hush now baby, don’t you cry
‘Cause there’s someone down there waiting, whose only goal in life
Is making sure you’re always gonna be alright
A loving angel, tender, tough and strong
It’s almost time to go and meet your Mom

You’ll never have a better friend
Or a warmer touch to tuck you in
She’ll kiss your bruises, your bumps and scrapes
And anytime you hurt, her heart’s gonna break

So hush now baby, don’t you cry
‘Cause there’s someone down there waiting whose only goal in life
Is making sure you’re always gonna be alright
A loving angel, tender, tough and strong
It’s almost time to go and meet your Mom

And when she’s talking to you, be sure you listen close
‘Cause she’ll teach you everything you’ll ever need to know
Like how to mind your manners
To love and laugh and dream
And she’ll put you on the path that will bring you back to me

So hush now baby, don’t you cry
‘Cause there’s someone down there waiting, whose only goal in life
Is making sure you’re always gonna be alright
A loving angel, tender, tough and strong
Come on child it’s time to meet your Mom

Here is another beautiful song, “Jealous of the Angels,” by Donna Taggart. Check it out:

I discovered Donna while searching for music by the Omagh Community Youth Choir from Ireland, who I saw perform last year at The Old School in Nashville. Here is a song that she sings with the Choir, “Guiding Light.” Check it out:
