When Hopelessly and I were arranging the details of our wedding, I (typical Type A Personality tha I am) had a very clear idea of what I thought would be our first dance. And in fact it never occurred to me that he might have another idea, much less that it would be a better idea. And so we have two wedding songs.
This morning on the way to work I was listening to an MP3 full of stuff I haven’t heard in ages and there amoungst it was our ‘other’ wedding song. Not our first dance, but the song Hopelessly dedicated to me during the wedding. Every time I hear “Always Have, Always Will” by Shanandoah, I hear something different always driven by what’s going o n in our lives at the time, this morning the following lyrics struck me:
Times may not always be good
But whoever said that they would
But girl, when life’s not fair
Just know that I’ll be there.
With a shoulder to always lean on
And a heart that will always be strong
Through valleys and hills, gray skies or blue
Girl, through it all, I’ll be lovin’ you.
That’s my man! And as I drove to work I was reminded why I am so totally crazy about him. No matter how much I fall apart he is always there for me. Let’s face it this year has certainly not been ‘good times’, but through it all he’s been the best husband any woman could ever hope for.
And so I know he is going to be the best father any child could ever hope for. Now we just need to figure out how to make that a reality.
