Happy Mother’s Day

My Mom used to take me to dancing classes when I was very little, and it was a very special time for me.

As many of you know, she passed away when I was 10, but I can imagine this song says a lot of what she would have wanted to say while I was growing up.

In the spirit of Mother’s Day weekend, I wanted to pass along the beautiful song “I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack, and the wonderful message it contains.

Wishing you all a wonderful time celebrating no matter what your family situation may be.

I Hope You Dance

Song Lyrics

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger

May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean

Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens

Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance…I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance

Living might mean taking chances, but they’re worth taking
Loving might be a mistake, but it’s worth making

Don’t let some Hell bent heart leave you bitter

When you come close to selling out, reconsider

Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance…I hope you dance

  1. I am being the Mother for my son I would have liked to have if I had a choice. It is very healing. My son dances and so do I. ❤

  2. How lovely. I have Mothers day for my mum in Germany but in England where I live it was already. I did send her some flowers to say I love her! I will visit her in 2 weeks time! I could celebrate it twice!
