A Prairie Home Companion celebrates that one person who manages to make you feel that you're special and that you aren't living up to your potential-all in the same sentence. Skits, songs, and stories from Garrison and the regular cast cover the gamut of all that goes into and comes out of motherhood.
Motherhood is a popular topic on A Prairie Home Companion, and not just on Mother's Day. It's about time someone gathered the best bits into an homage to Mom. This funny, affectionate, poignant collection honors the woman who gave up her own sense of self-worth for a life of mindless drudgery, day in and day out, all for you. The woman who sticks around when everyone else in your life turns away. Who insists "Don't worry about me, I'm fine. All I need is to know that you're happy." Who doesn't leave messages because motherhood is not about messages, it's about love. Share it with your mom or give it to a mom you know. If you're a mom yourself, hand it to your child and say "Listen." It's the least he or she can do.
