Mom’s Song

In her teens and twenties, my mom was a singer.  She had a lovely, haunting voice and great style.  By the time I came along and was growing up, Mom mostly sang while she did chores.  She always seemed to have her hands in the sink with a load of dirty dishes from our good Irish Catholic family of five.

Mom was a Connelly and her mother a Kennedy.  Yes, we’re related.  But then, Ireland is a small island; everyone is really related to everyone else.

So on St. Paddy’s day, here is the closest thing I could find to my mother singing her very favorite song.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day up there, Mom. I hope your Irish eyes are smiling and dancing up there with Dad.

Everyone else keep safe!  Me, I have dishes to do.
