Helen Espinosa’s theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is missing someone you love. The person I miss the most is the little boy my son used to be. The little boy who kept every sparkly rock he found because it was “special”. The little boy who crawled underneath a big cardboard box, pretending it was his shell and he was a pet turtle named Secret. The little boy who used to write his mother checks for a million dollars so she’d be rich.
I chose 1974 Mame’s “If He Walked Into My Life”, performed by Lucille Ball, shown here with the adorable (almost as adorable as my son, Brylan) Kirby Furlong as Mame’s young nephew Patrick. I think every son’s mother will understand. The link to the YouTube video is in the song title.
