"Take love, multiply it by infinity and take it to the depths of forever...

... and you still have only a glimpse of how I feel for you."

Once In Every Life

Dear Daughter

Music is Beautiful.
It can make you smile when your sad, cry when you really a need a good "Self Pity Party", and put you in the mood for all of your adventures. Through this you will find that I post many of my favorite quotes, poems and song lyrics. They help me keep memories fresh in my mind whenever I hear them. Here is just one of many.


"Once In Every Life"

Once in every life
Love should leave you without a choice
Where the only thing right
Is to follow that still small voice
Once in every day
It should take your breath away
Once upon a time
Should happen once in every life

Once you give it your heart
Without holding back your soul
You can dance in the dark
Cause you're never there alone
Once in every hour
You should feel that healing power
Once upon a time
Should happen once in every life

Once it's stronger than you
There's nothin' else you can do
You stop asking why, just let yourself fly

Once in every life
Love should feel so good you cry
And your only release
Is releasing three small words
Once you hear them out loud
You feel heaven coming down
Once upon a time
Should happen once in every life

Once upon a time
Should happen once in every life

I heard this song the first times many, many years ago. It reminded me of how I feel for your Daddy. After all these years he still makes me feel like a young woman  crushing after her high school sweetheart. Your father is more eloquent then I but to paraphrase him..."My Heart belongs to You. Whether its a special occasion or just an ordinary so-lucky-you're-in-my-life day. Whether we're laughing together or talking about our worries. Whether we're (you) are being moody or sensitive, crazy or romantic. The truth is, it doesn't matter what or when or how or why. Every day, in every way, I Love sharing life with you."  Sometimes I am in awe, that he chose me. The so un-coordinated, freckle face red head girl, who reads, makes crafts, does puzzles and bakes for fun. Today is your Daddy's birthday. Do Mama a favour and Thank Him. For being so smart and picking me.

So, to get back to my point, in the future.... Listen to the lyrics. The melody. The cadence. Let it hold memories for you.  And remember, "Once Upon A Time, Should Happen Once In Every Life."

I Love you Little Girl
Always and Forever
