If we had celebrated with a big wedding I would have insisted this be our song.
Of all music in all the world this sounds to me exactly how love should be…
When I listen and close my eyes I picture love aging gracefully.
I see the fragile, wrinkled hands of two people joined by more than years. There’s an embrace so strong it almost melts into one. And, the soft sway of two people smiling at the past and welcoming the future.
I see babies being born and mothers rocking sweetly in the night. I see young girls dancing on their daddy’s toes and a young man nervously holding hands with the one that said ‘yes.’
I see quiet evenings spent reading and laughing and smiling as we give thanks for being lucky enough to find it.
I hear this song and it sounds to me how love should be…
Real, timeless, indescribable love.
Extraordinary, immeasurable, all-consuming love.
Tonight I say thank you for this blessing I have in my family. I hug my children and watch them sleep. I remind myself that everything will work out with faith. And, I give my husband another kiss – all to the tune of Moon River…
