Dearest Steven...

I have loved you for so long now.
I can hardly remember when we weren't together.

My entire life changed the day I met you...
But incredibly you've stayed the same.

You are still the man of my dreams.
And the keeper of my heart.

Thank you for sharing your life with me...
For all the laughter.
For all the tears.
All the memories.

I'd marry you all over again and joyfully relive every single day, one more time,
if I could.

I will always be here for you...
And will love you forever.

Happy 34th Anniversary...



(Steven Curtis Chapman)
(First Song on My Playlist)

Tomorrow morning if you wake up
And the sun does not appear,
I, I will be here.
If in the dark we lose sight of love
Hold my hand and have no fear,
'Cause I, I will be here.

I will be here
When you feel like being quiet,
When you need to speak your mind
I will listen,
And I will be here,
When the laughter turns to crying
Through the winnin', losin', and tryin',
We'll be together,
'Cause, I will be here.

Tomorrow morning if you wake up
And the future is unclear,
I, I will be here.
As sure as seasons are made for change,
Our lifetimes are made for years
So, I, I will be here.

I will be here,
You can cry on my shoulder
When the mirror tells us we're older
I will hold you,
And I will be here,
To watch you grow in beauty and
Tell you all the things you are to me,
'Cause, I will be here.

I will be true to the promise
I have made
To you and to the one who gave you to me

I, I will be here
And just as sure as seasons are made for change,
Our lifetimes are made for years,
So I, I will be here...


Blessings as you celebrate life with those you love...

Love to you~

Rebecca Nelson said...

Oh, my Darling Rebecca. I do not know where all the years have gone. I do wish I could live them over again. So many decisions I would change knowing what I know now but not the one I made that day. :-)

You are so beautiful to me and I would marry your over 10 times again. I remember what a fun day we had that day as we drove away in our little baby blue Vega! LOL

Everything we have we got through hard work together, through thick and thin. Hey, maybe you could make me some of those miniature tuna and rye sandwiches to celebrate! LOL Yes blogger friends, make her tell you that story. Ha!

Thanks for everything my darling and here's to another 34 years. I am looking forward to it.

Happy Anniversary Dear.
