B, Family, Thor

The Way You Look Tonight

While shifting some things around at my mom’s house, I found the cd B & I played at our wedding.  I popped it in the car today, and though Thor howled at Etta James’ At Last vocals, like Hoo howls at police sirens, I had a great time listening.  The boy was dropped off at school before Etta had finished, so I got to listen to the rest by myself.

We’re coming up on our 10th anniversary.  The really nice thing is that if you’d asked me in December of 2003, what I thought December of 2013 would look like, I’d have described something like this exactly.  B and I have both progressed in our chosen fields.  We have a great kid.  We live in a place where we are all happy.  We have a goofy dog, wonderful family and friends, and we still like watching football from the sofa.  (I still don’t know what 4th and Down means, or whatever.  But I still like watching.)

I feel very fortunate to have this life, and very proud of all we have accomplished as individuals, and as a family unit.  Life can be hard, but we’ve all worked together to try to make life a little easier for each other.  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, but it’s always appreciated.

One of the songs on the cd is The Way You Look Tonight.  Sinatra’s version.  I love the opening lines.  “Some day, when I’m awfully low, when the world is cold, I will get a glow just thinking of you, and the way you look tonight.”  I’m that way about B.

I can think about him and feel warm down to my toes.  You throw Thor into the mix?  Well, I couldn’t have imagined a world I love more.

Some day, when I am an old, old lady, I’m going to remember these days and feel so very, very blessed.
