I'm sure we all relate songs to our happy, sad, crazy, broken heart, mended heart and moments of love and this is one I have wanted to share with you for a good few months now.
Before I met Pat I had to do a lot of work on figuring out that there would be someone out there who would love me for who I am. That might seem easy but I'm not actually a walk in the park. Most of it is because I'm a total oddball ... ask around, it's true.

Believe it or not, that was my worst quality about myself and it took ages to give myself permission to enjoy the quirkiness of my nature and ... well ... pretty much everything this perfect song depicts about me.

Whenever I hear it I think of Pat's love for me and the times he's had to direct me because I'm lost, jump in to save the food, wipe away a tear and the countless other reasons why he loves me and made me realise there's nothing to change and everything to embrace.

Well I'll never forget the first time that I heard
That pretty mouth say that dirty word
And I can't even remember now what she backed my truck into

But she covered her mouth and her face got red
And she just looked so darn cute
That I couldn't even act like I was mad
Yeah I live for little moments like that

Well that's just like last year on my birthday
She lost all track of time and burnt the cake
And every smoke detector in the house was goin' off
And she was just about to cry until I took her in my arms
And I tried not to let her see me laugh
Yeah I live for little moments like that

I know she's not perfect but she tries so hard for me
And I thank god that she isn't 'cause how boring would that be
It's the little imperfections it's the sudden change in plans
When she misreads the directions and we're lost but holdin' hands
Yeah I live for little moments like that

When she's layin' on my shoulder on the sofa in the dark
And about the time she falls asleep so does my right arm
And I want so bad to move it 'cause it's tinglin' and it's numb
But she looks so much like and angel that I don't wanna wake her up
Yeah I live for little moments
When she steals my heart again and doesn't even know it
Yeah I live for little moments like that

  1. 'I had to do a lot of work on figuring out that there would be someone out there who would love me for who I am' - shew...this resonates, it took a lot of hard work to find my self worth and ironically, when i believed to my core that i was unworthy of love, we found each other. stumbling in the dark, both damaged and scarred, angry at life and scared to live....if it wasn't for our friends, who know when we would have connected...

    1. Wow, your comment made me cry. I can't believe how familiar the story is and I've learned that the one thing that comforts me the most is not feeling alone in the world. That goes for you and your shared story. How blessed are we to have people to love us and mirror our beautiful selves.
