Today and Always


There is an American Greetings company line of cards

with the name of “Today and Always.” I love the big,

colorful and bright flowers on the one I received this

week through the ‘snail mail.’

The card I received for Mother’s Day was from my

Mom’s sister, my Aunt Amy, had a special message

for people of all ages; mentors, teachers, coaches,

neighbors, friends and family members:


is for


Who’s ever made a


in the Life of a Child.

This day

is for

Incredible people

like all of you!”

There was a band duo of mother and son,

performing on CBS Sunday Morning, 5/10/15.

They just put out a CD called, “Skeleton Crew.”

If you wish to honor a mother working in the

musical world with a son,

Check out this fantastic country duo:

“Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear.”

They come from the small town of

Independence, Missouri.

Guess what?

Last year on “Rolling Stone’s” magazine list

of Top 20 bands to pay attention to and listen,

Madisen and his mother made this short list!

They have performed on David Letterman, too.

Mothers are very special.

Wishing everyone a celebration of Mothers,

A little belatedly but straight from my heart.


About reocochran

I am experiencing crazy and hapless adventures in dating that may interest people over fifty. I am now approaching 62 later this year and enjoy taking photographs, incorporating stories or poetry on my blog. I have many old posts which are informative and written like essays. I have several love stories collected from family and friends. Even strangers spill their stories, since I am a grown version of the girl next door. I have been trying to live a healthy lifestyle with better food selections and active hiking and walking. I have written four children's books and illustrated them. They are not published but a battered women's shelter used one about neglect and abuse for their children's program and a 4H group used my "Kissing a Bunny is like saying a Prayer" as a coloring book. Please comment or respond so I may get a chance to know you. Sincerely, Robin
