Today, it's been 17 years that John and I have been together. I wanted to create a slide show of all the wonderful memories from all these years. First, I couldn't think of a song. I can't believe we don't have a song. I mean, we have a bunch of songs that we love and have shared together but they don't really say anything about our relationship. Then, I couldn't find enough pictures. I have no idea what happened to our photos prior to digital cameras, lol. The slide show is not that great as I didn't know how to cut the song after the last photo. I suck at computer programs. I've been trying to learn to use Etsy, FB fan pages, blog, movie maker,...all at once. A little frustrating.
Anyway, here is the video. I love watching it. It does bring wonderful memories to me. John is the most wonderful guy. I know that nobody is perfect, but he is as close to perfect as anyone can get. And, I'm not just saying that because he cooks and clean. Of course, that helps :) but because he is the sweetest and most lovable one. He is the one that has always been there for me no matter what. He is my best friend and I love him deeply.
I wanted to add a little poem to the slide show but I didn't know how. So, here it is. I didn't write it myself but I think it says it all. I got it form Love Poems and Quotes (Love poem #28).
Will you ever?
I don't think you will
ever fully understand
how you've touched my life
and made me who I am.
I don't think you could ever know
just how truly special you are
that even on the darkest nights
you are my brightest star.
I don't think you will ever fully comprehend
how you've made my dreams come true
or how you've opened my heart
to love and the wonders it can do.
You've allowed me to experience
something very hard to find
unconditional love that exists
in my body, soul, and mind.
I don't think you could ever feel
all the love I have to give
and I'm sure you'll never realize
you've been my will to live.
You are an amazing person
and without you I don't know where I'd be.
Having you in my life
completes and fulfills every part of me.
