One of the startling things about becoming a mother was discovering within me this unending store of absolutely unconditional love for my babies, and feeling it grow exponentially with each child. As much as I adore my husband (and I do) I have never listened to love songs the same way since I've become a mother--love has taken on such a profound face now. It has also made me appreciate so much my own mother and how much her influence has formed the kind of parent I am. So, for my mother, here is Natalie Merchant's Kind and Generous, from Ophelia
And for my babies, Carole King's (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman from Natural Woman: The Very Best of Carole King
Tonight, your challenge is an easy one: dedicate a song to your mother and/or if you are a mother, a song that exemplifies how you feel about being a mother.
