Amen

There are random times each day when I experience sudden bursts of disbelief followed by overwhelming joy at the realization that this is really happening. B1 and I found each other when neither of us were looking, after both of us experienced feelings of not being good enough for the people we once loved. And we made our way back. We love again and we are loved.

Sometimes I marvel at how fiercely we love each other. We're still new to each other, really, and yet it feels like we've known each other for far, far longer than we have. We fit. In every way.

And when I think about us-when I really, really think about how life took me to all of the different places it did and then all of a sudden he was here...it brings me to tears. I don't think in 100 years he will ever know how grateful I am for his love and how amazed I am by who he is as a person. But I'm going to do my best to tell him and show him so that he always knows just how important he is to me.

I'm missing him tonight...

I have a really lovely version of this song on iTunes but can't find it anywhere that allows me to post. This is the closest I can find...




Shoelaces untied
You can dry your eyes
Perfect shadows lie
Behind us
This is the day I make you mine

The way your hair lies
sometimes unrecognised
All the way from the east today
on a train
Nothing to say but there's still time

But you are the one
I've been waiting for today
And here comes the sun
It's been bating morn' today

Lately I've lost my tongue
Today you found my song
I know our love has grown
Well I thank god you came along

But you are the one
I've been waiting for today
And here comes the sun
It's been beating morn' today

You looked right through me
When there was no one else
I sat beside you and became myself
Today... today

You are the one
I've been waiting for today
And here comes the sun
It's been beating morn' today

I hope I can find my guy one day when I am not looking. It must be a great feeling.

I know, and I'm sure you do too, but the old cliche of "it will find you when you're not looking" holds so true. What a beautiful song! I'm so happy for you both!!!!!!!

I'm with Trininista on this one!

It's nice to see that old adages do come true and in this case, come true in the best way possible!
