The Lyrics to My Love Story

When I think of my Hubby, my soul mate, my best friend, I am overwhelmed with joyful thoughts and feelings. To this day, he still looks at me the same way he did when we first started dating. He still gives me butterflies, I still find him so ridiculously handsome. I am just so madly in love with him.

Our love story hasn't been perfect, we've been through some really tough times. Together, separate and just about everything in-between. Through every obstacle we have overcome, we are stronger than ever. More importantly, we are happy! So blissfully happy at that. Our children, our house, our time as a family, it's everything I ever hoped it would be.

Music is something that I hold very dear to my heart. It can bring me out of a bad mood, it can motivate me when nothing else can. So when I think of my love, I think of a few songs. Songs that bring an instant smile to my face because they remind me of Todd.

At Last - Etta James Our wedding song. It always puts a smile on my face and reminds me of our magical day.

Stuck Like Glue - Sugarland

Some days I don't feel like trying
Some days you know I wanna just give up

When it doesn't matter who's right
Fight about it all night
Had enough, you give me that look
I'm sorry baby let's make up

You do that thing that makes me laugh
And just like that

There you go making my heart beat again
Heart beat again, heart beat again
There you go making me feel like a kid
Won't you do it, do it one time?

Absolutely no one who knows me better
No one that can make me feel so good
How did we stay so long together?
Everybody, everybody said we never would

And just when I
Start to think they're right
The love has died

There you go making my heart beat again

The last and most influential song explains our love story to a T! It has become a sort of Anthem for our re-connection and always reminds me of how far we have come.

Bless the Broken Road - Rascall Flats 

I set out on a narrow way, many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you

Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true

That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
Yes He did

I think about the years I spent, just passing through
I'd like to have the time I lost, and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You've been there, you understand
It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true

But now I'm just rolling home into my lover's arms
This much I know is true

That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

I think everyone has these songs, written lyrics added to beautiful melodies that create a moment within us. Reminding us of loves lost, loves gained, and all of the beauty that life has to offer. I am so thankful that through everything Todd and I have been through that we are better than ever, happier than either of us thought we could be. It's magical, and one of the many blessings getting me through all of the hard times.

I look so forward to what tomorrow, next week, and the rest of our lives has in store for us. Thank you for blessing me with two perfect children and two incredible step-sons. Thank you for standing beside me in the darkest days of my life. Thank you for being so supportive and for just being YOU! I love and adore you.
