“Love can”

Love can cross borders and love can break walls
Love can unbind us, love can define us
Love can see through what our eyes can’t undo
Love got me thinking love can do anything

Take my hand

It’s not that we’re lost

We’re just plotting a different course than we initially thought

We are free

When we’re on our knees

Put your hand in mine

We’ll make it in time you’ll see

Love can cross borders and love can break walls

Love can unbind us, love can define us

Love can see through what our eyes can’t undo

Love got me thinking love can do anything

Come with me

We’ll find what’s in store

For the heart that is bursting, the soul that is thirsting for more

We are free

Come and see

We’ll make it in time, we’ll find everything we need

Love can cross borders and love can break walls

Love can unbind us, love can define us

Love can see through what our eyes can’t undo

Love got me thinking love can do anything

When you’ve got an extra-special present to give, make sure the wrapping does it justice by going for bold with classic tartan paper and an impressive foliage finish made by building the present its own mini wreath

It brings you totally back to what actually is

Celebrations of Mother’s Day throughout the World

Argentina –  It is customary to honor Argentinean Mothers with dinners, poems and special gestures of attention. Children write letters in school or make cards and crafts to take home. Husbands cook and clean and look after the family, allowing the mother to relax and enjoy the day. Moms are almost certain to receive flowers, cards, candy, jewelry or an unexpected surprise.

Mexico  – Celebrations include starting the morning with a song sung to the mother in the morning, followed by a family breakfast or brunch.  Typically the mother will also receive flowers, chocolates, or sentimental cards (May 10 is the largest day for sending cards in Mexico).

China – While China’s Mother’s Day is based primarily on the practices of the United States, it is interesting to note that most Chinese names begin with a character signifying Mother in honor of one’s maternal heritage.  

Ethiopia – Mother’s Day in Ethiopia occurs in mid-fall when the rainy season ends. Called “Antrosht,” Ethiopians celebrate by making their way home when the weather clears for a large family meal and a three day long celebration. For the feast the children bring ingredients for a traditional hash recipe, which the mother prepares for the family.  After the meal a celebration takes place. The mothers and daughters ritually anoint themselves with butter and dance while the men sing songs in honor of family and heroes. This cycle of feasting and celebration lasts two or three days.

Italy – The Italians celebrate La Festa della Mamma with a big feast and a cake made in the shape of a heart. Typically Italian schoolchildren will make something to bring home to their Mothers, and the family will take care of the chores for the day.

“Wonder Where My Baby Is Tonight”

Well I wonder where my baby is tonight
I wonder where my baby is tonight
I wonder where my baby’s gone
Hope she’ll do no wrong
Lookin’ for my baby, she’s not around
I wonder where my baby is tonight

I wonder what on Earth’s my baby’s doin’
If she’s not at home there’s trouble brewin’
If she really loves me she’ll believe in what I say
Tryin’ hard to find out where my baby is tonight
If she’s not at home I’d better go

Well I only know I wanna see my baby
Went to call for her but she is gone right out of sight
Looking for my baby
She’s not around
I wonder where my baby is tonight

Well I wonder where my baby is tonight
I wonder where my baby is tonight
I wonder where my baby’s gone
Hope she’ll do no wrong
Lookin’ for my baby, she’s not around
I wonder where my baby is tonight
I hope that everything’s gonna be all right
Well I wonder where my baby is tonight

Ain’t Nobody (Loves Me Better)

Ain’t Nobody (Loves Me Better)

 [Digster Pop]

Lyrics

Captured effortlessly
That’s the way it was
Happened so naturally
I did not know it was love
The next thing I felt was you
Holding me close
What was I gonna do
I let myself go

And now we’re flyin’ through the stars
I hope this night will last forever

Oh oh oh oh
Ain’t nobody
Loves me better
Makes me happy
Makes me feel this way
Ain’t nobody
Loves me better than you

I’ve been waitin’ for you
It’s been so long
I knew just what I would do
When I heard your song
You filled my heart with a kiss
You gave me freedom
You knew I could not resist
I needed someone

And now we’re flyin’ through the stars
I hope this night will last forever

Oh oh oh oh
Ain’t nobody
Loves me better
Makes me happy
Makes me feel this way
Ain’t nobody
Loves me better than you

At first you put your arms around me
Then you put your charms around me
We stare into each others eyes
And what we see is no surprise
Got a feeling most with treasure
And a love so deep we cannot measure

Ain’t nobody
Loves me better
Makes me happy
Makes me feel this way
Ain’t nobody
Loves me better than you

Ain’t nobody
Loves me better
Makes me happy
Makes me feel this way
Ain’t nobody
Loves me better than you
