~ I choose you ~

It’s not hard to do what’s right
when love’s the guiding light
It’s not hard to let go of dreams I once prayed would come true;
It’s not hard to lay down my life
in order to be mother and wife
when my reward in this world is you.

I would choose you over fortune
I would choose you over fame
I would choose you day and night, come what may;
I would choose you before all others
over goals, desires and lovers
I would choose you time and time again.

With all I am, I love you
I totally adore each and every one of you
equally ~ as the individuals I know you to be;
You will always be a part of me
for you are the very heart of me
and I would choose you over every whim, hope and dream…

My children, I adore you
with all that I am I love you
God knows that you are my greatest dreams;
I prayed for you before I met you
I longed for you before I conceived you
and now you are the reason my heart beats…

Come what may, I choose you…

I wrote this for my children… but it goes for my husband, as well…

I take photos. I write. I sing & dance. Ok, I DON’T sing & dance. Not in public, anyway; & usually 2 my own beat. But I have fun, & that makes life a little more tolerable -for me. Maybe not 4 my kids. But, hey, if they can’t laugh at their mum then they’re probably the only ones who aren’t. So turn up the music & let’s boogie! (Do they still boogie these days? Gosh, I’m getting old. Best be careful not 2 throw a hip while throwing a leg!)
