Happy Birthday Brawny Man!


click for music


For you there'll be no crying


       For you the sun will be shining


'Cause I feel that when

I'm with you  It's all right


I know it's right

kauii chair

And the songbirds keep singing
Like they know the score


And I love you I love you I love you

Like never before


To you I would give the world

To you I'd never be cold

'Cause I feel that when I'm with you
It's all right

I know it's right


And the songbirds keep singing
Like they know the score


And I love you I love you I love you

Like never before.

Like never before.


Beloved Husband, thank you for another year, albeit a very tough year.  It’s a miracle that you are still here with me…with our children.  You have already surpassed THREE predicted expiration dates; you are THE Brawny Man.

It’s true, from our very first touch, I felt that when I was with you, it was right.  With you, I have always felt safe.  I never wanted anything in life as much as I wanted you, and I thank God every day that you felt exactly the same way.

You ARE the Love of my Life, and I will never get over you.

Looking back on our 34 years, if you asked me which were my favorite days, I would have to day that

I loved them all.

Oh oh oh. My heart is in my throat. There is so much love here. Not any ordinary love. This is special, fairy tale love. True love, the kind they write songs and stories about. *sigh* Happy birthday to the handsome and all-around-wonderful Brawny Man.

You are so right. Light fills the darkness. There is a lot of light here. Kiss kiss and an extra squeeeeeeeze. xo

So beautiful...and happy belated anniversary. I am sorry to hear your beautiful Brawny Man has been unwell - life is so unfair at times. And this Eva Cassidy version of Songbird is one of my very favourite songs - my daughter Abby sings this like an angel - perhaps one day she will let me share on my blog x
