Oh Mother: A Mother of a Mother’s Day Dedication

Madre no hay más que una.  Definitely!

Mother's Day May 10 Mexico
Mother and Child by Lisa Monica Nelson

If you’re fortunate enough to have grown up with a mother like mine, who has always been willing to give every single ounce of herself for her children, even now, you’ll appreciate this very special Mother’s Day dedication.  It started with a partnership with Cricket Wireless for a Mother’s Day giveaway, but once your song dedications started coming in it was clear we had to do just a little bit more.  Estas son las canciones that you all dedicated to your madrecitas for their special day – today, for many mothers around the world, including those of Mexican descent like my own.  I’ll warn you que ya me la he pasado chillando part of this morning listening to some of these wonderful selctions.  Thank you for sharing them!
