if you have it,
you don’t need to have anything else.
If you don’t have it,
it doesn’t matter much what else you have.

La Flaca Lyrics
En la vida conoci mujer igual a la flaca
Coral negro de La Habana
Cien libras de piel y hueso
40 kilos de salsa
y en la cara los soles
que sin palabras hablan.
que sin palabras hablan.
La flaca duerme de dia
dice que asi el hambre engana
cuando cae la noche
baja a bailar a la tasca
Y bailar y bailar
y tomar y tomar
una cerveza tras otra
pero ella nunca engorda,
pero ella nunca engorda.
Por un beso de la flaca
daria lo que fuera
por un beso de ella
aunque solo uno fuera.
For those of you who are blessed to have your Mother’s with you, may Mother’s Day be filled with immense joy….!!!!
For those of you have lost your Mother’s, may your day be filled with precious memories of her.
Happy Mother’s Day to All ….!!!!
A Mother’s Prayer (Lyrics)
Mothers are the place where LOVE
emerges from the earth
And happiness rings out like bells
in honor of our birth ….
Mothers are the sun that lights
for Life our inner sky
So we may know that we are LOVED
and need not question why …
Mothers are the moon that shines
upon our black despair
So even when we weep, we know
that someones always there …
Mother’s hold their children hands for a short
while but their Hearts Forever
Nobody knows of the work it takes
to keep a home together
Nobody knows of the steps it takes,
nobody knows but a Mother.
Mother’s are Loving
Mother’s are Patient
Mother’s are Giving
Mother’s are Beautiful
No matter which journey
or which of lifes seasons
Mother’s will always be there
If I had a single Flower
for every time I thought of you ….
I could walk in my Garden – Forever Thinking of You.

The wordpress photo challenge this week was about the word ‘Dance’.
It stirred memories of the various dance styles I’ve experienced.
The Sunday Song video shows a great deal of those dance styles along with a bit of funk from Bruno Mars.
