I wanted to send this e-mail out today because it is Mothers day. Now I am a very lucky person. Pretty much everybody has had a mother or still has the memory of a mother in their lives. I have a pretty incredible one who has been through so much. A few years back we didn’t expect my mother to be around much longer. I was reading over my old journals tonight and reminded of how bad things were and how HUGE of a miracle it is that she is here. There is just so much to her story and so much that it’s impossible to tell it all. She wrote a very good post this week on her blog about her mother and a very amazing strong person I will always look up to, my grandmother Della Elmer. My mom is so much like her in so many ways. I ended up going to a movie the other night and needed to get my exercise. I parked my truck all the way out in the parking lot and it was at a theater I don’t go to very often. I started walking since I was a few minutes early to get my steps in. I ended up walking right past where my Grandparents lived in the winter and also where my Great Aunt who has passed lived as well. I had a flood of wonderful memories come back to me. I have had so many great people in my life and my grandparents where just incredible people. My parents are incredible and my siblings are. I feel like I have hit the lottery sometimes. Here is the link to my mothers post on her blog. A big part of this story makes me sad because I have also seen people say mean things to and about my mother. I have seen people call her fat and lazy. I can assure you that she was never been lazy. My grandmother was never the person that was described in this post. Happy Mother’s day Mom, thanks for all you do and I love you!. “Just Keep Swimming” http://www.laureldodge.blogspot.com
We have a few concerts this week.
Tomorrow (Monday 5-13) is the St. George City concert in the park FREE outdoor show. The weather looks great, just a little warm, and it’s going to be a fun show. We are launching the new HYMN cd publicly at this show. I hope you have had a chance to get your copy of this cd. If not go to my web-site and get it. http://www.ericdodge.com The show starts at 7:30 and is at Centennial park in St. George. It is right between Panorama elementary school and Pine View Middle School down behind the mall. We have some surprises and some giveaways you are not going to want to miss. I can’t wait.
Wednesday we are celebrating the life of Dennis Freeman. He passed away suddenly and it will be in Logandale NV at the Fairgrounds from 6-8pm. They will be having dutch oven dinners etc to remember this great guy. I met him while doing a cancer benefit for his wonder wife Cher and she has really been inspiring to me. It’s going to be a good event.
OK well I hope you have a wonderful day and a wonderful week. Feel free to invite your friends to be part of our newsletter. I am working on a surprise for all the members of this newsletter and I can’t wait to tell you about it. I hope to see you at one of our shows this year. NOTE: The broadway cd is going to become an online only cd this year. Once we are out of the ones we have in stock we will not be reordering them. If you like our fork in the road cd get your’s ordered soon before it is gone. It will be gone this summer.
Thanks again and make sure you remember your mom’s today.
Talk to you soon
