Heads or Tails: Shine

Today's Topic is:
HEADS - Shine

When my brother and I were kids, our Mom would wake us up each morning by singing, "Time To Rise and Shine". I sometimes dreaded hearing that one sentence because I hated getting up in the morning (and I still hate it). But now that I am older and mom has passed on, I miss hearing her early morning song. Sadly, it has been 17 years since she passed and I really can't remember the sound of her voice. I wish I had some video footage (with sound) of her or even had her voice recorded. A friend once told me that when I hear my mom again I will immediately know her voice and it will be like I stepped back into time...and I believe that.


  1. Oh yes, if you ever heard it again, you would recognise it. I'm sure of that.

  2. My Oma had a song kinda like that. It's sad, I've been sitting here trying to remember what it was...and can't. I'm lucky, though. Her voice was so distinctive, all I have to do to be reminded of her is hear someone with a German accent.

  3. I'm so sorry about your mother. My mother passed away 12 years ago and I still miss her.

  4. My Mother would say that in the morning, too. I never really got what it meant.

  5. Anthony...I think so too :)

    Bundle...that is cool that you can remember her voice. Sorry you cant remember the song.

    Tammy...I know that you mean.

    Blogger...maybe they think we are the sun?
