Feeling Sappy

“Vision of Love” came on this morning and I sang along as I always do cause I think I can sing like Mariah.  Anyway, all of the sudden I got all verklempt listening to the lyrics.  They perfectly express how I feel about my baby.

Treated me kind
Sweet destiny
Carried me through desperation
To the one that was waiting for me
It took so long
Still I believed
Somehow the one that I needed
Would find me eventually

I had a vision of love
And it was all that you’ve given to me

Prayed through the nights
Felt so alone
Suffered from alienation
Carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
So I believed
And now I know I’ve succeded
In finding the place I conceived

I had a vision of love
And it was all that you’ve given to me
I had a vision of love
And it was all that you’ve given me

I’ve realized a dream
And I visualized
The love that came to be
Feel so alive
I’m so thankful that I’ve received
The answer that heaven
Has sent down to me

You treated me kind
Sweet destiny
And I’ll be eternally grateful
Holding you so close to me
Prayed through the nights
So faithfully
Knowing the one that I needed
Would find me eventually

I had a vision of love
And it was all that you’ve given to me
I had a vision of love
And it was all that you
Turned out to be

    Aw that’s sweet! I think Shelby was close to the same age the first time that happened to me. It was a Phil Collins song from Disny’s Tarzan: You’ll Be In My Heart. It was right about the time I was regaining my identity after my divorce and still feeling guilty of “ruining her life” by parting ways with her dad. ‘Now stop you’re crying, it will be alright. Just take my hand, and hold it tight. I will protect you from, all around you. I’ll be here, don’t you cry.’ Ugh!! To.this.day… I still get choked up! Anyway, you’re not the only sap – and you’ll probably find that it’ll happen repeatedly with random songs, out of nowhere. I like to think it’s just proof of how much and how hard we love our little ones!
