Your Song


I was reminded of this quote when my sister texted me this picture a few days ago.  This was a note my dad left on the bathroom mirror for my mom.


My parents have been married for 30 years...what an accomplishment!!
I'm so lucky to have a dad that showed me love so I didn't need to go out searching for it and trying to fill a void.
I'm so lucky that I have parents who love and respect each other.  That gave me a relationship to model my own marriage after.  
Its sad but thinking about the current divorce rate, most people probably don't have their parents to look at for a lasting relationship.  A lot of people may not know anyone who has a lasting marriage.
Thanks Mom and Dad!


P.S. This post is named after my parent's song, Your Song by Elton John:

It's a little bit funny this feeling inside
I'm not one of those who can easily hide
I don't have much money but boy if I did
I'd buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one's for you

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you that keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world
