Moms and Dads

We all had one of each; and some of us are either a Mother or Father ourselves.

 

Recently my good friend Roberto lost his Mom to cancer. From listening to Roberto, he had a great relationship with his Mom and losing her was very hard.

 

Some of us who lost a "Mommy" or "Daddy" find it's never easy on the soul.  Although I lost my Dad while young, my Mom is still doing good at 80. I plan to make every moment that I can call and talk to her count. 

 

For us who grew up in the 50's and 60's our music was Rock & Roll and we seldom had or needed a dance partner. When I started learning Ballroom it was a total unique experience learning all these Ballroom dances.

 

Once when my Mom came to visit we went out to a studio dance and that's when I found out my Mom was a pretty good dancer. The great part about her dancing was that she never took lessons to learn all her "Ballroom" dancing. This was the dancing she grew up with, Foxtrot, Jitterbug, etc. that's what they danced in the USO clubs and when she was in the Navy.

 

I never saw my Mom & Dad dance but from what I hear they were great. I didn't get to see them but it sure was nice talking to Mom about her experiences.

 

If you still have your Mother or Father ask them about their younger days. You may find out something new too. If you are Mom or Dad tell your kids what dancing means to you and give them a memory of you to hold forever. One day they may brag about you just like we do now.
