“Sunday Thoughts”

On Friday, My wife and I celebrated our “I love you” anniversary. March 23rd, 1983 was the day I got up the courage to tell her that I loved her.  You can read about it at On Love.

So, for today’s “Sunday Thoughts”,  I searched for a perfect quotation or passage regarding “love”.  And the writings on the subject is quite extensive as you can imagine.  I was having a hard time deciding which one to use.  Then I came across this one, that described our relationship perfectly.

“Anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly.”

–Rose Franken

I saved the entry, but didn’t hit the “Publish” button just then.  I had to run an errand for my sweetie and I left the blog sitting.  As I was driving down the road, I started singing a song to myself and suddenly it hit me–the song I was singing was even more perfect than the previous quote. (And it’s a silly little song, as songs go)

Renee, I Love You  and Here’s Today’s “Sunday Thoughts”.

reneeseniorpic“I thought love was only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else but not for me.
Love was out to get me
That’s the way it seemed.
Disappointment haunted all my dreams.

Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.
I’m in love, I’m a believer!
I couldn’t leave her if I tried.

I thought love was more or less a given thing,
Seems the more I gave the less I got.
What’s the use in tryin’?
All you get is pain.
When I needed sunshine I got rain.

Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.
I’m in love, I’m a believer!
I couldn’t leave her if I tried.”

–Neil Diamond
