My Heart and Hers are the Same

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.

And I love you, I love you, I love you

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!

A Different Kind of Love Song

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!

February: A Month of Love Songs

I’ll be back to go over the results of my “resolutions” for January, but for now, enjoy this beautiful love song. (BTW, my goal for February is to come here and post a love song/some kind of post every week day. Wish me luck with that!)

Music Monday: another quick lesson

Yesterevening, I posted a lovely (wow, we like ourselves, don’t we?) blog post. It contained a recipe and a quick grammar lesson. Remember? I can remember it like it was yesterday-(Quick grammar lesson: It’s “Russ and me” because “me” works without the “Russ and”.  You wouldn’t say “about I”. Got it? Good!)

Well, after rereading that, I’d like to add another quick lesson. This time, it is a life lesson: It’s “Russ and me” because “me” does not work without the “Russ and”.  Amen. The end.

Because of today’s life lesson, the Music Monday post is a love song. I’m ALL ABOUT the love today, friends.

And here is the song that he says reminds him of us (he is a rock and roller through and through, folks. While I can come up with a bazillion love songs from just about every genre of music, he has a rock and roll heart. [oooo, Eric Clapton reference. Coincidence? I think not!]):

 

“The wonder of it all is that you just don’t realize how much I love you”

cue guitars and bring me a tissue!

FATT Tuesday

So, I just spent about 2o minutes or so writing a post about this video. And then, I hit the publish and the post flew off into the interwebs-never to be seen again.

Suffice it to say this whole cd rocks my frickin’ socks off and if you happened to be trapped next to me when I’m singing to this at the top of my voice, I apologize.

Listen to it, love it and then buy the cd for yourself! Do eeet. No arguments!

 


Cuz I been runnin’ now for days, pickin’ up the pieces of love…

Music Monday-Happy Anniversary edition

Music Monday is dedicated to my brother and his wife, who are celebrating their 31st anniversary! For some reason, when I hear this song, it reminds me of them. Probably because they always seem to enjoy each other’s company and have fun together.

Happy anniversary, Mike and Jamie! I wish you many, many more happy years together!

If music be the food of love, play on

 Chocolate covered strawberries for breakfast-it must be Valentine’s day!

Enjoy, my sweets!

If it’s the beaches
If it’s the beaches’ sands you want
Then you will have them
If it’s the mountains’ bending rivers
Then you will have them
If it’s the wish to run away
Then I will grant it

 And finally-

For just one chance to find
Love was someone that you loved to find
For just the sense to try
To walk ahead and leave the pain behind
If the days aren’t easy and the nights are rough
When they ask you what you’re thinking of
Say love, say for me love
Say love, say for me love

Your heart says not again
What kind of mess have you got me in
But when the feelings there
It can lift you up and take you anywhere
But the gravel beneath you and the limbs above
If anybody asks you where your coming from
Say love, say for me love
Say love, say for me love

Say yes we live uncertainty
And disappointments have to be
And everyday we might be facing more
And yes we live in desperate times
But fading words and shaking rhymes
There’s only one thing here worth hoping for
With Lucifer beneath you and God above
If either one of them asks you what your living of
Say love, say for me love
Say love, say for me love
Say love, say for me love
Say love, say for me love
Say love, say for me love
Say love, say for me love

 
LOVE
xoxoxo,
jane

Music Monday

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. day, all!

Sorry I’ve been MIA. I thought I’d ease my way back in with a good old-fashioned Music Monday post.

In honor of the man this holiday is named for, I have some music to share. Enjoy, or should I say contemplate, the following:

And Lord, Lord, Lord! Miss Mahalia Jackson may just make a believer out of me yet.

Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.

I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.~Martin Luther King, Jr.

xoxoxo.
