David Archuleta ~ Calling Home On Mother’s Day

Posted by MT on Saturday, May 11, 2013

mdbawww11156

There’s magic in a Mother’s touch,

and sunshine in her smile.

There’s love in everything she does

to make our lives worthwhile.

We can find both hope and courage

Just by looking in her eyes.

Her laughter is a source of joy,

her works are warm and wise.

There is a kindness and compassion

to be found in her embrace,

and we see the light of heaven

shining from a Mother’s face.

Wow! Another year has passed and it’s already Mother’s Day again. That means David gets to call home!  Since I’ve never had to leave my family for two whole years, I can’t imagine how much he misses his mother and the rest of his family. But I imagine it will be a happy day for all of them when he makes that call. Lupe must surely miss his laugh and that brilliant smile.

I know how much my mother means to me and I thank God every day that she’s still with me. Not everyone is so fortunate. I talk to her every day. She is my rock. She’s the one I turn to when I don’t know what to do because I know that whatever advice she gives will be what she believes is best for me. She always has my back. She is a staunch supporter of anything I want to try, often having more faith in me than I have in myself. She is always sympathetic, always caring, and when she speaks to me it is always with love in her voice.  I know David must feel the same way.

In times when life can be so hard

And worry can darken our day

There’s always one person who understands

And knows just what to say.

♥♥♥

I hope David and Lupe have a nice long chat and get to share lots of love and smiles across the miles.

Wishing you a day filled with joy and laughter.  To each and every one of you …

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY !

    So thank you for the Mother’s Day wishes, it makes you feel special to be a mother of the two legged or four legged younger ones or someone whoever they are who has come to appreciate you!

    So good to see David’s vlog!

    This will be my fifth Mother’s Day without my mother who passed away in October 2008, with me at her bedside holding her hand. Her last words to me and feeling her last heartbeat struck me deeply. Though my mother had Alzheimer’s in her last years, stealing my mother from me, I never realized how ‘clear’ she was going to be at the end. And that’s when I knew the end was near. I didn’t realize that I would miss my mother so much as I do around Mother’s Day, especially because she sent me a Mother’s Day card every year since 1991, because my first miscarriage was on Mother’s Day 1989, but I didn’t tell my parents until May 1990 when doctors found that I had developed cancer (I am a three-time cancer survivor). So, I think it’s wonderful that David will be able to call home to talk with Lupe. God Bless you David!!! Cherish these moments.

    Happy Mothers Day to one and all. (oh david, motherly figures, could he be any cuter?)
    Thirteen years ago today, I remember visiting my mom in her new care center. She’d only been there a week or two. Her Parkinsons was pretty bad, she needed more care than my dad could physically help her with. We walked to the nurses station and a very healthy looking older woman said to us “I’d like to report a shooting. My husband. I shot him. ”
    (the nurse told me this was an everyday occurrance with this lady. My mom just laughed and said “Someday, I’ll write a book about this place”
    She was always smiling, always happy, I just feel very lucky to have had her for as long as I did.
    And every time I hear David sing Ave Maria, I feel her around me.
    Going to listen to that now. ♥

    I loved your tender tribute to your mother, MT. It gives me a look into your heart – a beautiful place.

    Happy Mothers Day to all you lovely ladies (and to the wives of our few fellas!!).

    There is a courage that comes with love. We do not see it in the package: not in the wrapping, nor the box. We see only the love. We think: “This is the best. This is all there is. It does not get better than this.”
    Then later, much later, we see the love and it has become eyes of light in the face of courage.

    Hello everyone…Happy Mother’s day to all. Interesting how in expressing appreciation and love for our mothers, you’d think we all had the same mom. She sounds perfect as everyone describes her. My uncle described my Mom as a woman “without guile” at her funeral 31 years ago. That example has really been difficult to live up to. However, I’ve been blessed to live to see that exact quality in my own daughter. When she was a teenager, a young women’s group leader told me that she had never heard her ever utter one critical word about her mother (me) as the other girls habitually did when they got together. I was brought to tears. I am not perfect and I’m sure my child could have easily found something negative to say about me as the rest of them did about their mothers. I observe my daughter now with her husband, who upon getting acquainted with her, told his mother he had met “the most pleasant woman”. I observe her with her husband and three small children and find myself feeling doubly blessed for having two such fine ladies in my family. She carries on in the tradition of her grandmother and reminds me of her every day.

    I’ve been impressed to find similar traits amongst the ladies of this forum. It’s been a real pleasure as I’ve become acquainted with you and look forward to knowing each of you. (My apologies to any of you who may be of the opposite gender—these silly code word names can be misleading) haha or jajajaja as Gladys says in Spanish.

    Thank you for the beautiful article,MT and all the comments which brought me to tears several times! I am so emotional these days because my oldest daughter is graduating from high school next week and we have such a close bond that although I am so proud of the person she has become, it also makes me sad that she has grown up so fast! Also, my mom and dad came to visit us recently from South Africa but had to leave early because my mom got so sick. I really thought that I was going to lose her so this Mother’s Day has been a real blessing to me and I made sure to let her know how much I love and appreciate her. My daughters really tried to make me feel special too which was wonderful. David is such a wonderful and grateful son – hope he and Lupe had a lovely chat yesterday. Missed you guys on Saturday night, was seeing The Great Gatsby with my two older daughters!

    Jan,
    I bet it was very emotional. And I’ll bet the phrase “Next year you won’t have to call, you’ll be home!” came up.

    Beloirti,
    It sounds like you had a wonderful mom and your daughter sounds like a sweetheart. (And I’ll bet it didn’t skip a generation, either. You’re probably just like them.) And I agree with what you said. I’ve found some wonderful people here.

    Fee,
    Wow, I didn’t know your parents lived so far away. I hope your mom has recovered.

    “Happy Mother’s day to you all. Mine has been interesting. My husband and I just moved to a new home about a week ago. I still have some frozen breast milk in bags in the freezer. My oldest two children made me eggs this morning for my gift….sweet right? Yeah… until I took a bite! I haven’t had a chance to go to the store since we moved, don’t you know… I’m out of milk. They said, “don’t worry mom we used the milk in the freezer”!! yuck, breast milk scrambled eggs made by a 9 & 6 year old. I had to act like it was the best food ever while waiting for them to leave the room. The dog loved them!”

    Ohmy Aabbrra… that reminds me of the time I watched my sister actually take a bite of of roasted squirrel her son had shot ( out in the country and the woods) and cooked…I asked her ” How could you?” and she said, “because I love him'” ( to which I thought but did not say… “well i love him too but…..” Some things only a mother’s heart can know I guess!

    I had a lot of fun meeting Jan and her daughter at the Bluebird Sunday night. I am so impressed with both of them and think they really know how to have fun together. In a lot of ways, their visit really made my Mother’s day. Several times Jan leaned in and said of a lyric or something that was said, ” Now that reminds me of David, you too?” It was so nice to have that like mindedness at the same table for a few hours. I hope you all get to meet up with one another, (and me!) because it is fun and good.

    I posted this quotation from Abraham Lincoln on my FB page for Mother’s day and got a lot of “likes” I think we are all children at heart and that all mothers must pray…..I have always thought my mom’s thoughts and prayers stayed with me like a melody running thru my days…Here is how Lincoln expressed it:

    I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me.
    They have clung to me all my life.

    As the youngest of my mother’s six children, I got left out of a LOT of things as I was growing up. I didn’t have a ‘mother-daughter’ relationship with my mother, but not for lack of trying on my part. I was considered the ‘invisible child’ in the family. I knew a lot about my mother … why she divorced her first husband, packed her three children and moved to the other side of the state, and whatever she decided to share with me when the opportunity presented itself. My mother was 38 years old when she had me back in 1966. At that time, fathers weren’t allowed in the delivery room (and was probably best for their own safety and well-being), such things like ultrasounds weren’t even heard of, and giving birth wasn’t really recommended at her age. I was born three days after my mother’s birthday … LEOs in every sense of the word. We butted heads so often throughout my life that, by the time I became an adult, I had it figured out that my mother and I couldn’t be in the same room for more than 10 minutes at a time before she’d start to ‘push my buttons’ and I’d stand my ground … and no more than 30 minute under the same roof. In my mother’s latter years, she battled a lot of health issues, including uncontrolled diabetes and Alzheimer’s. I did everything I could to help her and my dad with her care … I even drove half the country from Kansas to Virginia to be here for her. Most of all, I wanted to try and have SOMEKIND of ‘Mother-Daughter’ thing before it was too late but her Alzheimer’s stopped that from happening. On October 8th, 2008, just out of the hospital and back in her room at the nursing home, my mother said something to me that I waited 42 years to hear, and right there she became the mother I had always wanted!!! Three and a half days later, at her bedside, I felt my mother’s last heartbeat as she slipped away. She never said another word to anyone that night. But, at her funeral, I was shocked, surprised, knocked off kilter to hear a soloist sing Ave Maria … and now I can never hear it again. I have, since my mother’s passing, found information on my mother … letters, genealogy work, documents, etc … that she never told me she had. So many things we never did … so many conversations we never had … and now all of these questions she’s not here to answer. So, to help me get through the transition in a woman’s life of losing her mother, I started a personal journal dedicated to my mother (and not my father, too) … questions I want to ask her … things I want to share with her … comfort I wish she was here to give.

    Just got back from seeing Joann Cash, Johnny’s younger sister. Just a small bunch to hear a great lady. When I was here 35 yrs ago, we went to Johnny’s house and got to meet and talk to his dad there in the driveway. He was real nice. Joanne said he was nice not a bad person like the movie depicted.

    SB, don’t remember any special memories when my mom was alive…she was a very good mom that raised 4 girls with me being the oldest. She had me and my sister 3 yrs apart then after 8 yrs turned around and had 2 more girls 3 yrs apart! She said most people don’t want to make the same mistake twice, but she did! haha Her mom always lived with us and had her flower gardens. Every time we moved, they would dig up all the bulbs and move them too!

    One memory I always remember on Mother’s day is when my granddaughter had her 1st daughter, 4 of her friends got the same “disease” as they called it at the time. So on Mother’s day at church the 4 mothers lined up with their babies in their infant seats and had their picture taken. It was so cute! All the babies are now 12 yrs old! And still cute, I might add. Also, my anniversary is May 13, so it fell on Mother’s day quite often. In fact, yesterday would have been my 52nd anniversary if Bob was still here.

How wonderfully fulfilling and tender that story is, because you have determined that it shall not have an ending. You are amazing. Where others might have given up or become bitter, you have created a path amidst thorns and found the rose.

    I salute you.

    My husband says that I have such good friends and he means everyone who loves to hear David sing!! SB, you’re husband is a wise man! 🙂 I have never met (or talked to) a fan of David’s that wasn’t the “cat’s meow”!!!!!!!! 🙂

    Thanks, SB for the compliment! I am normally shy, but one on one, I can talk your leg off!! haha And chalk up to my “stories” to experience because I’m older than dirt! 🙂

    MT, love your poem! Goes for me too! Love you all! ♥

    If interested, there is a Mission picture with David in it on FOD. He really looks good! ♥

    #37 Susan..sorry about your mother/daughter relationship. Life is too short as it is and when it’s not really happy, it can be very challenging.

    Happy belated birthday SandyBeaches, hope you had the most fun b’day 🙂 !!

    MT. Love your post, I always have a soft spot concerning everything about MOM !! since I’m the only child but been away in other country for more that 25 years !! I pretty much understand(I think) what Lupe and David are going thru from both perspective!! “mom” will always be our bestest friend, mentor and shoulder to cry on. How nice of David to think of everthing before he left and even more so when he express his love and gratitude toward his mom openly, this is one of the many reasons why we’re here waiting for him 🙂 <3, Oh love your birthday poem 🙂

    If you feel a huge distance away from David, get your ear buds on and listen….

    This is why I am here listening, remembering all the times he sang this beautiful song. All the worries of his return should be gone. If he sings nothing other than hymns and the songs he loves at Christmas in different languages, I would be happy.

    There is no end to the talent in this group. It could be a little intimidating if you all weren’t so nice to go along with it.

    Loved the poetry.

    Susan, sorry for the sadness. I was thoughtless in speaking of the blessing of a fine mother and daughter when you and I’m sure many others may feel a little put off because they have mother/child relationships that don’t “fit the mold”. Thanks for sharing and reminding us that many such relationship can be less than ideal. You made some tasty “Lemonade” from yours, however. We all deal with challenges of one sort or another. My heart goes out to you.

    My sister has Alzheimers. So senseless! Dreadful, isn’t it?
