For Douglas

Every time I look at you the world just melts away
All my troubles all my fears dissolve in your affections
You've seen me at my weakest but you take me as I am
And when I fall you offer me a softer place to land

You stay the course
you hold the line you keep it all together
You're the one true thing I know I can believe in
You're all the things that I desire,
you save me, you complete me
You're the one true thing I know I can believe

I get mad so easy but you give me room to breathe
No matter what I say or do
'cause you're too good to fight about it
Even when I have to push just to see how far you'll go
You wont stoop down to battle but you never turn to go

Your love is just the antidote
when nothing else will cure me
There are times I cant decide
when I cant tell up from down
You make me feel less crazy when otherwise I'd drown
But you pick me up and brush me off and tell me I'm OK
Sometimes thats just what we need
to get us through the day

And to add a few words of my own:

Thanks for always re-stocking the water in the fridge.
Thanks for recognizing "that crazed look" on my face and taking the kid to McD's.
Thanks for working hard and never getting mad when I sleep half the day.
Thanks for watching musicals with me (and letting me sing along!)
Thanks for not minding that our dining room is craft central.
Thanks for carrying all my stuff because I insist on wearing ridiculous shoes.
Thanks for eating whatever I "cook," and never complaining.
Thanks for being patient as I learn to trust again.
Thanks for loving my child as your own.
Thanks for taking care of us.

{Hear Sarah Mclachlan sing "Push", so pretty}

Alright alright enough of the mushy stuff. Nothin to see here, move along...

Ok, that is the sweetest thing ever. The only thing keeping me from bursting into tears is my spicy Italian sub and fritos- as long as I keep stuffing my face I can't cry, right? Sorry just a little crazy this morning- I had a 3 hour glucose tolerance test and I feel a little wacky!

Yeah.... Let's keep this between you and me, eh? Don't want everyone thinking I'm turning into a sap.
Stop eating spicy stuff- your baby will come out all red and stuff.

Haha. Done and done.
