“Hey guys… David here and I just wanted to wish all you moms out there, and motherly figures, a Happy Mother’s Day, and I kinda just wanted to highlight my mom, and show this picture of me and my mom together – from a little while ago – and, umm, I just wanted to thank mom for everything you’ve done and for raising me the way that I have  – for being a huge help to me with every single decision I’ve made, umm, you’ve really, uh, been a good example to me and you’ve helped me keep, uh, helped make sense – haha – of things for me (aside, ha that makes sense, then eyebrow raise)  I appreciate your heart and, uh, your kindness, and I’ll see you when I get back.”

There aren’t enough tissues in the entire Universe to get me through that vlog – David simply thought about EVERYTHING before he left, and this special Mother’s Day message of love to Lupe is beyond words.  Well, not quite beyond words, because I happened to transcribe his heartfelt words so that they could be preserved forever.  A tribute of love and appreciation from a son to his mom ~ no sweeter words for sure….

Mother Prayer

Dear Lord,
today we pray for mothers–
our own mothers, and mothers everywhere,
who have made such a major contribution
to the good qualities we have,
sometimes through genetics,
more often through great effort and patient instruction,
and who have done their best
to gently polish away our rough edges.
Lord, please bless our mothers
for the endless hours of time they spent
and the boundless energy they invested in us.
Bless our mothers for their sacrifices on our behalf
as they often gave up or deferred their own dreams
so that we could have ours.
Bless our mothers for always being there for us,
for being the person we know we can turn to
when we need comfort, encouragement, or just a hug.
Bless our mothers for making a home for us
where we could feel safe, where we felt we belonged.
Most of all, Lord,
bless our mothers for their unconditional love,
for loving us no matter what,
and for frequently showing love
in ways that make us feel valued and cherished.
Lord, please bless our mothers mightily.
Strengthen them, soothe them,
wrap them in Your infinite love
and shower them with blessings
too numerous to count, too magnificent to describe.
We love them, admire them, respect them,
and we wish that You would give them back
many times the good they gave to us.
In Jesus’ name we pray; Amen.

Thanks Lupe – For Sharing David with us and with the World!

There’s nothing like a mother’s love – and we want to thank Lupe for raising such an amazing son!  We all miss David – but I can’t imagine how much Lupe misses him!

Over the years there have been many tribute vids dedicated to Lupe as well as vids of performances where David and Lupe share the stage!  It’s easy to see that talent runs in the family!

A Lovely Idea from Kristin

Kristin shared this idea and thought that other fans might like to participate:

“Hi fellow Archies this is Kristin, I wanted to share something that I think might be a good idea for others to do while David is still away. Last week at my church we updated our prayer requests for our bulletin and I decided to add David’s name to the list since he is still away for another year for his mission and thought he could use some prayers. Today I was both happy and surprised to see his name in the bulletin! I attached a photo too so you could see it. I was thinking, if people were comfortable, that at their own churches, they could ask for prayer requests for David? I mean people don’t really have to if they’re not comfortable with that but I’m just throwing the suggestion out there. If anyone’s interested they’re free to do so. If not, then that’s fine. I just thought we could add some prayers for him. Have a wonderful day 🙂 “

    Happy Mother’s Day From David Archuleta http://goo.gl/V1bS3

    Awww! Before David Archuleta left on his mission he filmed a video wishing everyone a very happy Mother’s Day! In the video David wishes moms around the world a very special day, and he also highlights his own mom.

    David thanks his mother for everything she has done for him. And he also thanks her for how she raised him to become who he is today.

    At the end of the video David talks about his mission and about coming home soon!

  21. Kimberly Ann says:

    Rie Chu ‏@riesnoodles 18m
    I’m still a huge fan of @DavidArchie. Listening to his music keeps me sane & grounded. He’s a good artistic influence on me too. #justsayin

  22. Kalei, Thank you for such a great Post dedicated to the mothers especially Lupe, Davids Mom.
    To all the Mother here and all over the world, happy Mothers Day!
    Even those who aren’t mothers. i’m sure you have been like a mother to someone who has needed it at some point in thier lives.
    Gwen, my friend what a beautiful Mothers Day quote.
    My son took me to a very nice breakfast at the Elks lodge,
    My daughter is taking me to dinner. Needless to say, DIET here i come!!!!
    Kim, guess i was crying right a long with you. I still cry when i see it.
    Nice to see it posted on Disney Dreaming.
    He’s so cute. He still has problems getting his words out. Thats what i love about David. He doesn’t read from a card, He just says what he feels at the time. Even if he doesn’t make sense at time, we understand everything he is trying to say to us.

  23. breanne says:

    Kalei, your Mother’s Day post is so AMAZING!!! 🙂 Last night when I saw David’s Mother’s Day vlog on twitter, it brought tears to my eyes! He has to be the sweetest person ever and Lupe must be so proud of him!!

    HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY everyone! Off to spend the afternoon with my son and his adorable family.

  24. Grannycrush says:

  37. Janel aka Nellie says:

    My kids wished me a Happy Mother’s Day, that’s all, I guess that’s something. LOL… Geraniums were handed out at church today for all the mothers. So, I got flowers. I guess it’s not something my kids ever did anything for me….with few exceptions. Flowers from them sometimes, or something they would make at school, or a nice card. But, only Alyssa is here today. Amanda took McKinley to the zoo, Zakk is at his friends, Caleb is at his dad’s. Not wallowing, really, I’m used to it, but unlike most moms today, I’m bored. LOL

  38. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Wonderful huh Sarah? He’s such a sweetheart!

    Janel–yes, him and his mom are lucky to have each other. 🙂
    Oh, and here’s my Mother’s Day virtual ((((HUGS))) & (((CHOCOLATES))) for ya! 😀

  43. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Never mind Sarah, had Oreos and milk instead. LOLOL

  44. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

  46. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Oh Sarah, and mint chip ice cream with Hershey’s syrup. I’m indulging. LOL

  47. Bychance says:

    What a sweet surprise, that vlog! He is just the best!

    I hope you all had a lovely Mother’s Day! We all can be a nurturing influence on children, whether they are our own or not. I have a feeling David’s fans are great mothers, grandmothers, aunts, daughters, sisters, and friends.

  48. kalei says:

    Happy Mother’s Day to all the lovely ladies here! That vlog is so precious! He took the time more than a year ago to record that vlog – and he could have made it private just for Lupe, but he shared it with us to wish all mothers and mother figures a Happy Mother’s Day – this is why we’re waiting – he’s so worth it!

  49. nora says:

    Kalei, you are so right, that is why we are waiting, that is one of the many reasons we are waiting, he is soooooooooooooooo worth it.
    Hope you all had a great Mothers Day, I sure did, one more day closer to 2014, can’t get here soon enough.

    Goodnight sweet David dreams.
