True love comes in many forms. I’m the luckiest person in the world because I get to love my sweet Beth. This is our song. Be jealous, folks, be very jealous. And then run out and find you a Beth (not mine, go get your own!) to love!
“True love is not the kind of thing you should turn down Don’t ever turn it down”
When true love shows up at your door, make sure you go out and get in the car with it. If you take no other advice that I give, follow that piece. You’ll be very happy you did.
This is the song that we will play for our first dance when we renew our vows. If we do that. Twenty-five years together deserves something like another party, don’t your think? And Russ deserves some celebrating for having put up with me all of these years, right?
Marriage is hard, kids. Being human complicates things, makes them all messy sometimes.
We’ve been through so much together…my-cheeks-hurt-from-smiling happy, floating-on-air ecstatic, aren’t-we-amazing contented, this-may-be-the-end bad, I’m-the-damnedest-idiot-on-the-planet hurt, hold-me-I’m-frightened scared, life-is-short sad…and through it all, the one thing that has kept us together is love.
It’s trite. It makes people roll their eyes. Saying love conquers all sounds crazy. Sounds simplistic. It’s not simple. But love makes it possible. All things. It reminds us of who we are and whose we are.
This song is for my Valentine, the man who loves me in a way that astounds me. I can say this to him, I love you, I love you, I love you like never before.
Happy Valentine’s Day, all!
Happy Friday, y’all!
Hope you get to experience some of that crazy little thing called love this weekend!
Love, sweet, sweet love. It doesn’t make the world go around, but it makes the ride worthwhile.
Today’s love song isn’t even a song, but it is a testament to love that is so amazing it will make your heart fill to bursting. And it’s a beautiful love story.
I’m thankful to my niece, Catherine, for sharing this with me. I love that girl!
