At the risk of sounding like an old country song… this one’s for my husband… I’m proud of you babe! I BELIEVE in you!  I miss you!

This one’s for you……..

church pew

Went to church with a broken heart and two kids,

wondering if anyone would ever love me again

and then you did.


Saw you up there in the front,  leading songs,

my heart beat a little faster after that first date we went on.

Seems so long ago since those days when we first met,

if I’d been a gambler, I might not have taken that bet.

crying in the sand

And yet twenty years later we seem to have survived,

Rose in the woods 1

in-between lots of heart break our love’s still alive!

Wedding Garter

I’ve become a grandma

and you…

a Papa to our kid’s kids.

Auntie me

grandpa and jas

After I thought no one would love me again…

holding hands

 you did.

  1. I’m late to the party — and so glad I came! Love this. Love how you express not only your abiding love, but also your friendship and compassion.

    and yes, your man sure does look happy. He looks like a really heartfelt human being! Just like you.

    1. Ahhh Louise! I just found this! My blog has been getting some new readers that have been going back in my archives (which always touches me when people take the time to find the old stuff!) and found this post! Thank you for your sweet comments! And yes he is a happy guy! I don’t deserve him!

  2. My apologies.. I thought i had commented on this.. How blessed you are to have found love and a life partner….Very happy for the both of you and keep on smiling!!

  3. What a beautiful ode to your husband! It sounds like you two have been through a lot. And now, you are entering a season of loving a new grandbaby. Congratulations and many blessings to your growing family, Diane! 🙂

    1. I loved it! Everyone should go check it out! Such a great tribute to your own love!
      I always love….. getting to peek into a man’s heart who is “falling in love” Why is it that sometimes, love seems even sweeter from a man’s perspective?!

        1. It is.
          Not sure why the confusion… unless you are not a man… smile…
          What I meant is… as women we know our hearts… and we understand where we are coming from… but it is like wondering does it feel the same for our men… do they get that edge of the seat in love feeling too?
          That is all. No hidden messages here. 😉
          Have a great weekend!

          1. I was just foolin with ya!
            You have a wonderful weekend, too!
            We found a place we can pick our own strawberries, and are going to pick a bunch on Sunday, so I can make the year’s first batch of jam!

  4. Di, what an absolutely wonderful tribute to your husband, your love, and your marriage. Best to you both…, and he’s lucky to have you !

      1. Really… that’s so sweet. Thank You so much… 🙂
        I’m so happy to have met you too, Diane. In fact, I believe we are both pretty lucky women to have found, not only our men, but also ourselves… xoxoxo 🙂

I would love to hear from you...Thank you for stopping by!
