Jonatha, your songs from My Mother have touched my heart, and sometimes torn it apart. My wife is disabled from orthopedic issues, and suffers from bi-polar disorder. While my wife's story doesn't exactly match your mother’s, there are so many aspects of our lives together that reflect similar issues and emotions. Your songs convey the same feelings of love and loss, and the sometimes overwhelming burdens that wash over me. I see myself in these songs, I see my wife, and I see the struggles (and successes) that we experience every day. These songs sometimes bring me to tears, but they also help remind me of the love I have for my wife and give me strength to persevere. Thank you for putting all this down and once again for the gift of your music.
