This is going to be a difficult Mother's Day for our family this year. My Mother-In-Law was diagnosed with Brain Cancer a little over a month ago. She is currently receiving radiation. This will probably be our last Mother's Day with her. I want to cherish every moment of the day with her. I am going to be making a special ham dinner to bring to her home. I bought her a wig as a gift since she lost all of her hair. I will be getting her other gifts as well that will be useful and keep her comforted. She means the world to me and is the sweetest, most loving woman I have ever known. When my mother died in 1999 she was there to comfort me and has always made me feel like I was a daughter to her as well.
My wish is for all of you to remember the women who have nurtured, loved and influenced your lives on this Mother's Day. May the memories that you make last your lifetime.
Happy Mother's Day

Rod Stewart has spent four decades being a rock star, three being a parent, and has a new album's worth of rollicking stories to tell.
Time is his first album of new material in almost 20 years (and his hairstyle hasn't changed one bit!)
I can still remember the first time I listened to Rod Stewart's music when I was in my early childhood and his distinct voice captivated me. I was an instant fan. I really enjoyed listening to this album. It is new and fresh and well written.
There are different tempo songs to appeal to all. Time, released May 7th, 2013, marks Stewart's long-awaited return to his songwriting roots and features 12 tracks, 11 of which he wrote and produced. The album was born from a burst of inspiration that came while Rod was reviewing his life for his recent memoir.
Rod rediscovered his voice as a songwriter and rekindled his gift for writing the honest, nerve-touching narratives that have been the cornerstone to the first three decades of his career. "Suddenly ideas for lyrics were piling up in my head," he says. "Next thing I knew, I had a song called 'It's Over' about divorce and separation. And now I was getting up in the middle of the night and scrambling for a pen to write things down, which has never happened to me. I finished seven or eight songs very quickly and I still wasn't done, and it became apparent that I would eventually have a whole album of material to record."
Along with the release of Time, Stewart is set to embark on the European leg of his Live the Life tour on June 1st, while American dates with Steve Winwood will kick off October 17th.
Time Track Listing:
1. She Makes Me Happy
2. Can’t Stop Me Now
3. It’s Over 4. Brighton Beach
5. Beautiful Morning
6. Live The Life
7. Finest Woman
9. Picture In A Frame
10. Sexual Religion
11. Make Love To Me Tonight
12. Pure Love

I am a huge fan of Michael Buble's music. I love Michael's distinct voice and style of music. I really enjoyed listening to his new album "To Be Loved". He certainly did not disappoint this fan. I loved the remakes and duets that were performed. My favorite song on the album is You Make Me Feel So Young. It's such a great song and he performs it perfectly.
In his new album, Michael brings some of the greatest hits from the past back to life in his own way.
"I want to take you on a wonderful journey about love—all different kinds of love," Michael says."The album swings big time: it rocks, it’s soulful, it’s happy, sometimes a little sad. It’s romantic, it’s yummy, and it’s heartfelt."
To Be Loved, out now, finds the Grammy winner covering songs by Frank Sinatra, the Bee Gees, Jackson 5, Elvis Presley, Van Morrison, and more. In the mix of golden standards are four original songs co-written by Bublé, dipping into his personal life for inspiration.
I especially enjoyed the duets with Reese Witherspoon and Bryan Adams!
Upcoming TV Appearances:
- Dancing With the Stars - 4/30/13
- The Ellen DeGeneres Show - 5/3/13
To Be Loved Track Listing:
1. "You Make Me Feel So Young"
2. "It's a Beautiful Day"
3. "To Love Somebody"
4. "Who's Lovin You"
5. "Something Stupid" (featuring Reese Witherspoon)
6. "Come Dance with Me"
7. "Close Your Eyes"
8. "After All" (featuring Bryan Adams)
9. "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You" (with Naturally 7)
10. "To Be Loved"
11. "You've Got a Friend in Me"
12. "Nevertheless (I'm in Love with You)" (featuring The Puppini Sisters)
