From This Moment.....

So for nearly one year we have been dealing with an extremely difficult situation.
When our son was born we made a decision to start down the path of dramatic change for our family.

Like all change it began with a leap of faith,
a longing for better,
a desire for more and all of it, every ounce of it, was with my son in mind.

A large piece of our puzzle finally found its place and we were able to breath a lovely sigh of relief.
I found myself driving home that afternoon quietly thinking about how well things had gone and how happy I was for the outcome.

I glanced into my rear view and smiled as I saw my sweet boy looking out the window.
The Sun lighting up his eyes each time she peeked through the trees.
I was reminded why we sometimes do the things we do, and how powerful we can be when we want to be.

My Grandmother always said that the person who wants to do something could always do more than the person who had to, 
and yet again, she was right.

Just at that moment a song came on the radio, one that truthfully I never liked too much.
I always considered it one of those made for wedding songs.

Cheesy, sappy, all the things I tend to shy away from.
I believe I actually mentioned the song by name when our wedding play list was being complied as a do not play, right up there with the Marcarena.

Only this day, after going through what we just did, 
after thinking about a new and different future and after looking at that beautiful boy as the why we were doing it all, the song just flooded every ounce of my being.
Every word was different,
every meaning new.

Yes, this song that once brought me to laughter now brought me to tears.
Amazing what spells those little souls can weave.

my reason...

"From This Moment On"

(I do swear that I'll always be there.
I'd give anything and everything and I will always care.
Through weakness and strength, happiness and sorrow,
for better for worse, I will love you with
every beat of my heart.)
From this moment life has begun
From this moment you are the one
Right beside you is where I belong
From this moment on

From this moment I have been blessed
I live only for your happiness
And for your love I'd give my last breath
From this moment on

I give my hand to you with all my heart
Can't wait to live my life with you, can't wait to start
You and I will never be apart
My dreams came true because of you

From this moment as long as I live
I will love you, I promise you this
There is nothing I wouldn't give
From this moment on

You're the reason I believe in love
And you're the answer to my prayers from up above
All we need is just the two of us
My dreams came true because of you

From this moment as long as I live
I will love you, I promise you this
There is nothing I wouldn't give
From this moment
I will love you as long as I live
From this moment on
