One of the great joys of my musical life is songwriting. As long as I can remember I’ve written songs to express my thoughts and emotions. I have notebooks full of lyrics, and a mind full of melodies. I’ve written songs about love, sadness, disappointment, and adventure. I’ve even written songs for other people to sing on their wedding days.
But one of the most important songs I’ve ever written is “The Treasure, which I wrote for my mother, Ruth Chitwood.”
Now, after years listening to women talk about their mothers – and asking me to make my song available – I’ve finally decided to share it with others who want to honor their mothers but may not have the time or ability to write a song themselves!
LISTEN to The Treasure

Here’s something I rarely tell anyone:
I’m terrified of losing my mother.
I am an only child. I knew early on that my mom and dad lost two children to birth defects and I was the miracle. I was the love of their lives, and I never took this for granted.
My mother is my foundation, the woman who taught me, cuddled me and sang to me. She and I always laughed together when I was a little girl, and we still do!
She’s the beautiful, talented, light of a woman in my life.
Every opportunity I get, I honor her, on her birthday and on holidays, and especially on Mother’s Day.
So, I’m wondering…
Would you like to honor your mother with a song?
