Day 260: Happy Birthday, Mama!!

Posted by annagrace under Days 201-300

It is my amazing mother’s birthday today!! I have been sick, so I was unable to really put together a good gift just yet, but I decided, for now, to record a quick rendition of Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday is one of those songs that can get extremely boring, because it’s so simple and sung so often, so I tried to spruce it up with the ukulele! I played it 3 times: the first time just straight chords, the second time picking the chords and the third time a more patterned chord strumming! After that, I sang the song we always sing at my church to celebrate birthdays! It’s a nice alternate to the traditional birthday song, and my church family gets so into it with hand motions and everything! :D At any rate, here is the recording…

Happy Birthday Mama!!!

Yay!! So glad I have such a wonderful mother in my life! While she might not be like most moms, I wouldn’t change a thing! Happy Birthday, Mom! Love you!

Yeah… never doing a text shape like that again…

Anywho, enjoy!!

BTW you’ve probably noticed the serious lack of posts lately… I decided to take a break while I finished up the semester, but now I hope to get back into it! I think I’m going to set a new goal date since I’m so far behind at this point, but I will update you all when I decide what I’m doing!
