they're playing our song...

For today's WW
I'm going to reveal just a bit
(part 1)
of my project

Always and Forever

Always and Forever

Each moment with you

Is just like a dream to me
That somehow came true

And I know tomorrow
Will still be the same
Cause we've got a life of love

That won't ever change and..

Every day

Love me your own special way

Melt all my heart away

With a smile

Take time to tell me

You really care

And we'll share tomorrow together

I'll always love you Forever

There'll always be sunshine

When I look at you

It's something I can't explain

Just the things that you do

And if you get lonely

Phone me and take

second to give to me

That magic you make and..

Every day

Love me your own special way

Melt all my heart away

With a smile

Take time to tell me

You really care

And we'll share tomorrow together

I'll always love you


This was *our* song.

(Do you remember it?)

It (always and forever) is engraved

on my husband's wedding ring.

It is how he signs notes to me.

I'm thinkin'
about having my 13 yr.old
send it to DH's phone for my ringtone
(I am phone-challenged...can't do that myself:)

I wanted it to be part of my *project*

I ordered this banner
from Madai The Wren's Nest...
Isn't it pretty?

thanks again for everything...you're swell...
update:Please keep praying
DD had to go back in for another D and C
for bleeding.
Tomorrow (wed) is DH's dr's appt.
He's nervous...that says a lot
He's never nervous!

This post brought tears to my eyes. Very sweet. You don't find love like yours very often. Hope all the testing works out for everyone in your family.

Thanks for participating even though I know you have a lot going on in your life right now.

Take care,

Hi Rene...your posting is beautiful! I, too, had my husband's ring engraved...we switched it a bit, "Forever and Always." And, yes, he signs his cards to me "F & A." Aren't we the luckiest women?!

I love reading your posts in which you share your love for your husband. It reminds me a lot of my husband and I. We were high school sweet hearts. Our love grows and grows with each passsing year. God is so good.

I am praying for Dh and Ds. I am going through a bought of infertility and though it is not the same, some how I feel her pain.

Dear Rene`,
I love this beautiful post! Yes, I remember that song, it was always a favorite of mine. How romantic always and forever is engraved in your wedding rings and your dear hubby signs his notes to you that way. I love the decorating you have done. Your vignettes are so romantic! I love the ALWAYS banner from precious Madai. I have a couple of her beautiful banners and enjoy them so much! I am praying for your daughter and hubby!
Love, Paula
