Me and my girl

You can see it in their eyes,
in tender hugs and long good-byes,
a love that only moms and daughters know.

You can see it in their smiles,
through passing years and changing styles,
a friendship that continually seems to grow.

You can see it in their lives,
the joy each one of them derives,
in just knowing that the other one is there…

To care and to understand,
lend an ear or hold a hand,
and to celebrate the memories they share.

Mamma Mia – I have a dream…

The Bean’s school put on a production of Mamma Mia last night – it was really great.  They adapted the script so that it was set on a game lodge in the bush.  There were a lot of laughs and much fun was had by the cast and the audience.  Well done!  It was performed in the open air under some beautiful trees.  The sound and lighting were excellent for an outside show.

They skipped my favorite song from the movie so I thought I would add it here for your listening pleasure.  Before we moved back to SA we spent 10 days on the Greek island next to the one that this movie was filmed on – absolute bliss…..
