Mommy Would you Love Me?
by Laurie Weaver
Link to the original version on ToonaCat.com

Carla colored in her great big book
And took it to Mommy for a look.

Mommy would you love me if I colored rainbows in the sky?
Oh Carla dear, I’d miss you if you went away so high.

Carla pulled her shoes on,
The new ones nice and white

And Mommy tied them up,
Not too loose, or tight.

Mommy would you love me if I marched a Zillion miles?

Carla Dear, if you marched ALL that way, how could I see your pretty smiles?

Carla dug the dirt, with her little hoe.
While Mommy planted flowers in a nice, neat, pretty row.

Mommy would you love me if I dug the biggest hole of all?
Oh Carla Dear, it would scare me silly to think that you might fall!

Carla splashed while Mommy Scrubbed, Giggling silly in the tub.

Mommy would you love me if I blew bubbles across the sea?

Oh Carla dear, how could I get your ears all squeaky clean if you were so far from me?

Carla snuggled onto Mommy’s lap, eye still sleepy from her nap.

Mommy, won’t you love me for ANYTHING I do?

No Carla Dear, my Dearest Dear,
I’ll only ever love you just because you’re you.

I’m enjoying taking various photos today and it shows. This selfie from reaching above shows me wired up and ready to record on the podcast rock.

Podcast Recap

I ponder criticism’s impact on risk and going for our dreams. Thank you to new BC Char, who posted a 5-star review on USA iTunes. BCs have been asking ‘Where’s Alen?’ Find out from a clip from Alen Standish’s and my third interview.
Welcome to Char and to other new BCs, including Shelly B. and BC X – who shares a wonderful email, but wants to remain anonymous. Comment conversations from day 114 featuring Dawny, Dave, Myself, eM and Mark. Why is it Mark shrugs off our compliments? Dave’s wife, Kathleen, goes on the bravery report for sharing some foolish fun for the first time and Dawny shares a very funny pair of jokes. I practice voice acting by reading you one of my latest blog posts which includes a dialog between myself and one of my pesky inner voices – Tantrum Laurie.

The Brave Companion Song from Day 100

I asked Fionna to write this song as a way to celebrate our bravery. This version of it was used as part of our big celebration show on Day 100. The “Brave Companions” are the show’s listeners and those who participate by commenting here or who send in audio to be used in the show. BCs are a supportive audience of people all around the world, and luckily for us, Fionna is a BC too! This version was recorded with help from Fionna’s sister, Annie.

Hear more of Fionna’s great songs

The Brave Companion Song participants for Day 100:
Amy from Wisconsin, Cheryl, Dawny, Fionna, Maria from a Spanish speaking country, Patt, Sandy, Stéfanie from Quebec, Sue from the UK, Suz, Mark, and Laurie

Lyrics

The Brave Companion Song
by Fionna Lane

Verse 1:
You and me on the road who knows where
You and me need the wind at our backs
Need a friend just to find some comfort on the journey
In my head it can get so lonely
Look around and I’m not alone
Found someone, found a brave companion
A true friend I can call my own

Chorus:
Sing a song of the Brave Companions
Sing a song of friends new and old
You listen to my hopes and fears
And let me know I’m not alone

Verse 2:
Trying hard just to be authentic
All this fear and it’s hard to be me
Could shut up but hey, that’s pathetic
I wanna live a life that’s free!

(Chorus)

Bridge:
Well hello all you brave companions
Hello all across the world
What we’re going through is hard to do
And we deserve to be heard

(Chorus)

Sing a song of the brave companions
Let you know that I really care
You listen to my hopes and fears
It helps me just to know you’re there.

BTW to save a copy of the song for yourself, please know the download link right below the player seems weird – it comes as part of my podcasting system and not from me – if you just click on it, it DOESN’T download the file – wah??? BUT if you right-click (or Mac folk Control_Click) the download link and chose , Download linked file as…. or Save linked file as… then it downloads the file. Enjoy! – LW
