You see, this was the song I sang to her (to both my babies, actually) when I rocked her to sleep at night. Or stood over her crib. Or while we rode in the car.
It was the song my mother sang to me. And the song my daughter sings to her children. Love that!
My daughter had a Winnie the Pooh bear that she had to sleep with every night. When her first baby was born, she found a little musical chip that played this song and sewed it inside the bear so her son could sleep with her Winnie the Pooh and she would sing to him in time with the music box. I found a little music box that played You are My Sunshine and gave it to my daughter for her birthday one year.
As you can see, it is a special song in our family.
I celebrate the family tradition today along with the fact that we also know the TRUE Sunshine of the world; our Heavenly Son-shine.
