Says the sore singer,

In 12 hours I get to see my mommy!!!! Its a beautiful thing when your mom is also a nurse, and a drinking buddy. Oh, and a jitterbug partner

She's 30, but I don't think you ever age out of it. l admit it, when I'm feeling absolutely awful I sometimes tell my husband I want my Mom.

How about a few other pick-me-ups for the spirit that work for the rest of the world?
