Taylor here. Now I’m not much of a writer, and I’m almost certain that I was born without the right side of my brain because I don’t have one ounce of creativity. Works great being an accountant. Not so much for blogging. However, on this day in 1987, the most magnificent thing happened; my beautiful wife was born. So, impossible as it may be, it is my endeavor to put in words how blessed I am to be sharing life with this most wonderful woman.
As you have probably figured out by now if you frequent this blog, Sarah and I are basically complete opposites. She’s creative, I am not. She’s extroverted, I’m introverted. She’s very funny, I’m mildy funny (and even then only sometimes). The list goes on. Our relationship puts meaning to the saying that “opposites attract”. Even still, she’s had my heart since the very first time we met. I still don’t really understand how it happened and I’ve quit trying to figure it out, but for some reason, this incredible woman has decided to spend the rest of her life with me. For that, I am ever blessed.
It is rare that a man has the opportunity to share life with a woman that is an unending inspiration. Because of her, I wake up every single day wanting to be a better man. That alone is a testament to the woman she is and how lucky I am. With her, my world is truly complete and nothing else matters. Sure, life can be hard. Money in fact does not grow on trees! But none of that matters, because with her, I have everything. Because of that, I will never want or need. I’m eternally sated. That’s a blessing that can’t be described any other way.
I heard this song for the first time a few months ago and made Sarah listen to it. She of course, didn’t react! However, she just recently discovered the same song and now loves it (I keep trying to tell her I found it first!). Anyway, I love the words in the song because they do a great job of describing how wonderful life is knowing you have found that one person to spend it with. Below is an excerpt that is particularly consistent with my feelings about my one love!
