Happy Mother’s Day ~ David Archuleta

Posted by bebereader on Sunday, May 10, 2015

FotoFlexer_PhotoThis old picture of David and his mother, Lupe has become a classic.  It’s posted here in honor of  both Mother’s Day and the seventh anniversary of his trip back home to Murray, Utah during his stint on American Idol. No matter how far, I hope David is able to spend Mother’s Day with his Mom this year.

    Happy Mother’s Day!

    A while back I wrote a comment about waking up at 3 AM with the sensation of a cat curled up near my head and purring loudly. It was my beloved “Baby” who had passed away a year before. It was March 19, 2011. This was my mom’s 101st birthday anniversary. I remember speaking to the cat as if he was going to get up and snuggle with me. Feeling that he was REALLY there was so intense, I knew it had to be a strong spirit who brought him to me. When the purring stopped after a few moments, I thanked my mother for letting us visit for a bit. Sometimes you just KNOW when something is so special, that it has to come from another place.

    It’s the small things that get you. Nothing too important that your life is changed forever, but maybe made a bit happier.

    About a month ago I was searching through all my recipes in a folder and a small tin box for a Spinach Pasta Salad recipe that I really like. I even emailed a friend to ask if she still had a copy that I had given her. No luck! So I gave up on the idea.
    The other day I opened a kitchen drawer and there it was! My recipe card for Spinach Pasta Salad! it was hanging out in that drawer like it was just waiting to be discovered. I have no idea how I could have missed it when I was hunting for it.

    Then a few days later it came to me. I got a big smile on my face and said “Thanks Mom!”

    You can call me crazy but these events do happen to me and there is no reasonable explanation why I get what I need when I need it, other than love from the other side.

    Someday I’ll talk about the anonymous checks I got in the mail for the last 2 weeks. 😉 They are a real mystery.

    Happy Mother’s day to all. I have a similar story Abrra, a little while after my mom had passed I bought her a beautiful mum and put it on her grave , as I was leaving a piece of paper in the plant caught my eye. I picked it up and read these words, the name of this mum is Helen,that was my mom’s name, I thought wow!

    David checks in!

    (Google translate did a decent job this time)

    ” To you who gave me your life
    your love and your space
    to you that you carried in your womb
    pain and fatigue.
    you who fought tooth and nail
    brave at home and anywhere ….
    I dedicate you my verse
    my being and victories

    Abrra.. I love that story of your mom. I know she is watching over you. When we look for them, there are so many signs that we are loved from the other side. My mom was in her last weeks the night I went to the AI concert and saw DA live for the first time. She was and is a true angel.

    I wrote this poem years ago. I share it now for Mothers everywhere who may wonder if they are alone.

    Mother / Atlas

    On my own
    I brace the day,
    Shoulder weary.

    Still…

    When I close
    My eyes – I see,
    Rivers of light upholding me.

    Happy Mothers Day. You guys are the best!

    I believe that the Mother’s Day message from David is from this song by Denise de Kalafe:

    Abrra, what special moments, it has to be her. The the checks are a mystery but hey they’re legit so enjoy!

    Nice Poem Bluesky!

    Cchalo, it does fit. I always wonder how David is aware of the most random songs. Beautiful sentiment.

    Happy Mother’s Day to everyone! Rain, celebration, now rain again! 🙂 That’s the way today has went but all in all a great day. Had about 20 family here and now all is peaceful again! Nothing like family and food!

    Loved your stories about your moms Abs and Potluck. I have a similar story, but it involves my husband. All the kids had picked out which rings they wanted from their dad and all of them took them from the drawer they were in. When my oldest daughter went to get her choice, it was gone. She looked, I looked, to no avail. She just knew that one of the other kids took it and I told her no, because they just wouldn’t do that. One day I got this little voice telling me to go look in that drawer again. I did and over in the far, left corner was a tiny piece of paper. I lifted it up and there was the ring. We couldn’t believe it! Must of been Bob telling to go look one more time.

    So sweet of David on how he remembers his mama! He has the best heart. ♥

    Forgot to do the puzzle…be back!

    Happy Mother’s Day to all as this day winds down. I spent a good part of the morning with my Mom at the rehab facility where she is currently staying. I took her a new robe and was able to curl her hair for her. My dear hubby, bless his beautiful heart, took her an orchid corsage. I am simply amazed at how he has taken such a personal interest in my mom’s care since dad passed away last summer. ♥ ♥

    I have a little plaque that sits on my fireplace… “Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love our lost ones shines down to let us know they are with us.” I believe this is really possible.

    Thanks Abrra for another great puzzle. 🙂

    I’m a little late but I hope all of you were able to spend the holiday with those special people who are such an important part of your lives. We were lucky enough to have 4 generations represented for our celebration. As Angel said, I’m feeling blessed.

    I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s day! 🙂

    Hum. Seems like Denise de Kalafe has been around for a while. It makes me wonder: is this just a song DA already knew from years ago? Or… is he studying Spanish music more now… and… is he writing more Spanish music?

    ^_^ Inquiring minds want to know!.

    I called the Idaho Falls Arts Council and requested info on getting tickets.
    Their rep said “For David Archuleta?”
    “How did you know?” says me.
    “We’ve had several calls. Lots of calls. All regarding David Archuleta.”
    What a nice lady she was.

    #16 Thank you Abs. Sounds delish, especially when it’s from a ‘food-stained crumpled recipe card”. Silly me assumed there was actually spinach in it. I guess I can just add it.

    #19 Dayzee haha Why am I not surprised?

    Bebe… ‘Silly me assumed there was actually spinach in it.’ I did too. I read thru the ingredients list a couple of times before I focused on the pasta description. Oh my, Abrra… do you think we can be trusted with this trusted recipe? LOL

    Dayzee.. You must have spoken to the same lady at the IF Arts Council that I did. A very nice lady, and not at all in a hurry to come to the end of a phone conversation… very willing to explain everything in detail.

    I think you will like it. I used rainbow corkscrew pasta on other occasions. That would make it Rainbow Pasta Salad, but don’t look for any pot of gold, ok? 😉

    Dayzee, Yep! Some may think David is done, no fans left, blah blah blah lol But the reality is he is selling out venues. With some coming from as far as Denmark, Australia, Argentina, and rumor has it some from the Filippine’s, not to mention California, Colorado, Michigan, etc… So it’s not just because it’s Utah or a close by state. I believe in my gut that more are coming 🙂

  29. Previously, the site did have all the PS3 Slim information up a couple
    weeks prior to a formal announcement by Sony, so this could be another misstep by
    Amazon. They believe that these games only trigger a lot of trouble and that there are
    not numerous benefits of playing these games.
    Finally, Yakuza 3 has no solid release date for North America yet.
