Snapshot: We Don't Have a Song

Snapshot: March 20, 2017, approximately 7:15PM. Hubs and I chit chat as he gets ready for work. 


Me: "You know what? We don't have a song." 

C: "A song? Oh yeah. I never thought about it. I guess we don't." 

Me: "We should have a song. Don't you think?"

C: "Hmm." *does a Google search and then suggests the following songs*

  • Seal - A Kiss From a Rose
  • Boyz II Men - I'll Make Love to You
  • Bryan Adams - (Everything I Do) I Do It For You
  • Backstreet Boys - As Long As You Love Me
  • Backstreet Boys - I Want it That Way

P.S. Yeah... We still don't have a song.

Nurture: A Letter

Wow. Do you even know how beautiful you are? I see you. I see into you. Your gentle spirit soothes. Your giant heart welcomes. And that smile. The unexpected one that you can't hold back and shines like the sun. The sweet pain of life is made better in your presence. I'm so glad I know you.

But those feelings you have? You know, the ones that make you feel "less than"? They couldn't be further from the truth. You're wonderful. Is there a word that's better than best? And while I'm at it, I'll search for ones that tell you how much you matter. And how your voice, a dulcet tone, adds to the symphony of us all. You are enough. These invisible barriers and battles we begin in our minds - I still don't know the why or how of them. It seems pointless in the face of your shining light. 

Some say the grass is greener on the other side; some say it's green where you water it. I say, show me your bucket and I'll help you fill it up. Together, we'll nurture the meadow of friendship and laughter. 

Envy is a four letter word. Love is a better one. Which do you choose?
