I love you deeply with all of my being
Your love rescued my heart, which lay bleeding
You are the compassion my eyes are seeing
You are everything I am always needing
I love you with all of my hearts passion
Your love rescued my spirit, which was crying
You are the man I didn't need to fashion
You are everything that kept my from dying
I love you with all of my innermost thoughts
Your strength rescued my body, which was weary
You are the one who leaves my stomach in knots
You are everything I have never been fearing
I love you enormously with all that I can size
Your love rescued my confidence, which was lost
You are true love before me with no disguise
You are everything I will buy at any cost
I love you happily with all of my smiles
Your love rescued my laughter, which was gone
You are the friend I never knew just awhile
You are everything to me of which I am fond
I love you like crazy with all of my pride
Your love rescued my zest, which was bored
You are the teammate I wanted on my side
You are the man I would've never ignored
I love you deeply with all of which is in my mind
Your insight rescued my life, which was lonely
You are the man I always dreamed I would find
But when all is said and done you are only
Happy 25th Anniversary Shawn!
That's Shawn and me. Survivors of the big hair 80's: Our engagement photo, 1986.
Last night Shawn and I were led to believe we were hosting a birthday dinner celebrate his Mom's birthday, which was on the 23rd. As it turned out, my sneaky Mother-in-law and sister-in-law schemed up a surprise Anniversary dinner for us.
Shawn's Mom made this pretty cake to celebrate. She is such a selfless person...this was supposed to be her birthday dinner and she completely turned it into something different. The wedding couple figurine on the top of the cake was from her wedding, 51 years ago.
She also handed down this hand made bedspread / tablecloth that her Great Grandmother made. Isn't it gorgeous? I bet you can guess where it will show up soon! This is such a special heirloom, one that will be passed along, someday, to one of my children. These are the most special things.
She brought her Great Grandmother's wedding dress. We all sat in our living room as she told us about and showed us this exquisite gown. Every bit of it was hand stitched. I wish my photos had come out better because it was simply stunning!
My kids are not the only goofballs in the family...it runs in our genes. That's my nephew, Jack, there on the right. Hilarious.
