All of these lines across my face,
Tell you the story of who I am.
So many stories of where I've been,
And how I got to where I am...
But these stories don't mean anything,
When you've got no one to tell them to,
It's true...I was made for you!
I climbed across the mountain tops,
Swam all across the ocean blue,
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules,
But, baby, I broke them all for you!
Because even when I was flat broke,
You made me feel like a million bucks,
It's true...that I was made for you...
You see this smile across my mouth,
It's hiding the words that don't come out.
And all of our friends who think that I'm blessed,
They don't know my head is a mess.
No they don't know who I really am,
And they don't know what I've been through like you do,
And I was made for you!
I am a sucker for music, as you probably well know by now. Two posts in a row with song lyrics...I guess you know what I've been doing! Actually, this one is on my running playlist. The Grey's Anatomy version which is sung by the beautiful and talented Sara Ramirez (check out this fabulous article by her about being a size 12 in a size 0 world). It seems like the more I listen to this old Brandi Carlisle song, the more I feel like it was written for me and Jonathan. Especially the line about crossing mountain tops and swimming across the ocean and breaking all the rules. It's so apropos...
It's true though...I know that when I was being knit together in my mother's womb, that God was creating me as the perfect compliment for Jonathan. And him for me! Things are not always rainbows and daisies. I almost think if you're in a marriage that IS rainbows and daisies, you better be gearing up for the apocalypse! I'll tell you, though, that when we get "heated" about things (which is rare, but it does happen), it doesn't, at all, diffuse our love for each other. And there are times that I sit in the living room and watch him hovering over his books and I think "Wow...how lucky am I?" There are times when I'll be reading or working on the computer and I'll look up and catching him watching me. The love between us is out of this world. Literally. Unlikely as it may have seemed in the beginning, nobody can dispute that we are perfect for each other...
