Our Song

When Mark and I got married, we danced our first dance as husband and wife to Love of My Life by Sammy Kershaw.  Since then, it's been our special song. Whenever it finds its way to the top of the playlist on my iPod, my sweet husband drops everything and asks me to dance "our dance". 

The day after Natalie was born, Mark went home for awhile to get some more things since we would be staying longer in the hospital than expected.  I was alone in the room with our beautiful daughter when Love of My Life started to play on my iPod.  As I looked at her and listened to the words, the song took on a whole new meaning.

You are the love of my life.
You are the reason I'm alive.
And baby, baby, baby,
When I think of how you saved me,
I go crazy.

I've never known love like this.
It fills me with a new tenderness.
And I know, I know, I know,
You're in my heart and in my soul. 
You're all I can't resist.

And I need to tell you, The first time I held you, I are the love of my life.

Now I think of the song as our "family song", and feel so blessed to have my sweet husband and beautiful baby girl in my life.
