WRITER'S WORKSHOP PROMPT:
TELL US ABOUT YOUR SONG...
I L-O-V-E our song, "When I See You Smile" by Bad English. I L-O-V-E it so much that I painted it over our bed. And I L-O-V-E the fact that when my daughter Paige suggested that Rick and I take a picture by our sign, Rick actually jumped up and did it (complete with a cheesy grin) even though ( as you can see by the fact that he is wearing his comfortable shorts) he had settled in for the evening-- flipping between a Diamondbacks game and a John Wayne movie no less.
That's love baby. True love.
I thought about trying to explain all of the whys for my love of this song, but I decided to let a sampling of the words speak for themselves.
Sometimes I wonder if I'd ever make it through
Through this world without having you, I just wouldn't have a clue
'Cuz sometimes it seems like this world's closing in on me
And there's no way of breaking free, and then I see you reach for me
Sometimes I wanna give up, I wanna give in, I wanna quit the fight
And then I see you baby, and everything's alright, everything's alright
When I see you smile, I can face the world, oh oh, you know I can do anything
When I see you smile, I see a ray of light, oh oh I see it shining right thru the rain
When I see you smile, baby when I see you smile at me, oh yeah
Baby there's nothing in this world that could ever do
What a touch of your hand can do, it's like nothing that I ever knew hey
And when the rain is falling, I don't feel it, 'cuz you're here with me now
And one look at you baby, is all I'll ever need, it's all I'll ever need...
That in a nutshell sums up our relationship. Support, strength, love, laughter and plenty of smiles. There's not a person alive who makes me smile more than that man o' mine.
And if I'm ever being a downer and forget how important my smiles are to him, remembering one of my favorite quotes always gets me back to being Miss Nice Girl (sorry I don't know who said it)
Take bread away from me, if you wish,
take air away, but
do not take from me your laughter.
... it opens for me all
the doors of life.
Love. That. Quote. Smiles and Laughter are among the most powerful forces on earth. And if you don't believe me, just watch the video to our song HERE. And see how happy you feel after laughing at John Waite's hair.
