Garth Brooks has just released a brand new single titled “Mom” that is a sweet remembrance of all the wonderful things that it means to be a mother and to have a mother. If you turn up the volume on your computer a bit right now, you can hear a snippet of it and Garth’s own feelings about the song. I admit, I got a little teary eyed when I listened to it. He’s got a special celebration of moms going on you can scroll to the bottom of this post to read about!
The Christmas season is always a time for reflection anyway, and this season that reflection has been a little more poignant. My own mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in the fall, and I realized how much I took that relationship for granted. How much I took her for granted until I almost didn’t have her anymore. And my mom loved me with all her heart anyway that whole time, because that is what moms do.
It’s amazing how moms are this absolute source of unconditional love when it comes to their kids. They do what it takes to make them feel safe, and try to ease their children’s worries–even when they are fighting something really scary themselves like cancer. Moms are these giant invisible supports, and sometimes us clueless kids don’t really realize just how large those pillars are in our lives and just how important that support is until that support threatens to shift a bit under their feet.
Moms aren’t perfect or infallible, but they are always present, no matter the age or distance. They take up a part of your heart that can never quite be filled once missing; a mother’s love is something hard to replace, and that part of your heart is where you carry them with you always.
This time we were lucky; mom’s cancer was operable. She’s not all the way through treatment, but things look really good. What my mom is and what she means to me was something I needed to realize, and though I am sorry how I had to learn it this way, I’m glad at least that I did. You rock, mom. You ARE my rock.
I guess I should thank Mr. Brooks, too for a beautiful song. I’ll take a minute to remember Mom when I hear it. You can download the song yourself on the new music platform GhostTunes.
