is Mr. B daddy?

...it is a good question....i guess i haven't really said that Mr. B is the man i married...

Cece has been reading our love story....and as I read a bit over her shoulder today I HOPED that some of my writing went

OVER HER HEAD. [love you Cece]

anywho...I am back to write; and by her request:

....How did daddy ask you to marry him?
for Tomorrow's edition!


Explanation:
Last night Cece and I had a mommy daughter sleepover...she is such an amazing little girl [12 now]; and I love spending time with her.

I will say that her daddy kicked her out of our room tonight.

He says he doesn't sleep well ALONE in her room
[which I am thankful that he still needs me];

...I am his little heater.

So...during our sleepover we watched Phantom of the Opera; her FAVORITE movie.

Actually we watched it twice... I love the music. I particularly found interest in the lyrics: All I Ask of You.

As my husband and I are about to celebrate our 16th year; sweet 16...,

I find myself reflecting on our years; our trials, our celebrations. ALL we have been through, all he has been through to stand by me, as I heal, and grow, and learn to TRULY love. And, yes, all we have been through has been worth it.

It has never been really easy. Nothing that is worth it is EVER easy.

It has been work, but he has been good to me.
ALwAyS thoughtFUL.

And I am THANKFUL.

Three songs that are OURS; speaking of dancing...we still do; yes, I do:

Following are the lyrics to some of our songs [also for your listening pleasure I have fussed with the playlist...the top three songs are OURS;
first: by Jon Schmidt, the song I do;
which I gave to my MR. B for our 10th anniversary:


Last night, in the quiet, when our day was through,
I listened to you sleeping and stayed awake by you.
And softly, through the evening, there I spoke your name
And told you all the feelings I’ve had.

I sometimes see you sitting by the window in the hall.
Or laughing with the children at the little things you saw.
And lately I’ve been wondering if it’s all I can do
To hold you and to show you I do.

My promise is forever with you

My promise is forever. “I do.”


then, the song he gave me...: She will be Loved [Maroon 5]

Beauty queen of only eighteen
She had some trouble with herself
He was always there to help her
She always belonged to someone else

I drove for miles and miles
And wound up at your door
I've had you so many times but somehow
I want more

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
She will be loved

Tap on my window knock on my door
I want to make you feel beautiful
I know I tend to get so insecure
It doesn't matter anymore

It's not always rainbows and butterflies
It's compromise that moves us along, yeah
My heart is full and my door's always open
You can come anytime you want

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved

I know where you hide
Alone in your car
Know all of the things that make you who you are
I know that goodbye means nothing at all
Comes back and begs me to catch her every time she falls

Tap on my window knock on my door
I want to make you feel beautiful

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved

[in the background]
Please don't try so hard to say goodbye
Please don't try so hard to say goodbye

Yeah
[softly]
I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain

Try so hard to say goodbye



and then...today: and for NOW;
a new song to add to our repertoire.


OUR RHAPSODY!

To dance again...our 16th dance...Mr. B.

I have a new song for you.

And yes, Cece, Mr. B is your daddy!


Lyrics to All I Ask of You: [from Phantom]
RAOUL:
No more talk of darkness,
Forget these wide-eyed fears
I'm here, nothing can harm you
my words will warm and calm you
Let me be your freedom,
let daylight dry your tears.
I'm here with you, beside you,
to guard you and to guide you...


CHRISTINE
Say you love me every waking moment,
turn my head with talk of summertime...
Say you need me with you now and always...
Promise me that all you say is true
that's all I ask of you

RAOUL
Let me be your shelter
let me be your light
You're safe, No one will find you
your fears are far behind you...


CHRISTINE
All I want is freedom,
a world with no more night and you, always beside me,
to hold me and to hide me..
.

RAOUL
Then say you'll share with me
one love, one lifetime
let me lead you from your solitude
Say you need me with you here, beside you...
anywhere you go, let me go too
Christine, that's all I ask of you...

CHRISTINE
Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime...
say the word and I will follow you...
Share each day with me,
each night, each morning...
Say you love me...

R
AOUL
You know I do...

BOTH
Love me - that's all I ask of you
Anywhere you go let me go too
Love me - that's all I ask of you...

this is how I feel, now, in this moment and time. I am needing his shelter, from my past, from my mind, my fear, my nightmares.

He is my security, my hope, my shelter.

I LOVE YOU MR. B!

please B Mine!


and tomorrow: by Cece's request....HOW did Mr. B propose to me?!!!???...

Heatherlyn said...

Beautiful lyrics! So great and meaningful!

Sue Q said...

Boy, oh, boy, did I come to the right blog on the right day! And I probably would never have found you if you had not found me first! So thanks for stopping by...

And if, by some chance, you live near me in the Pacific Northwest, I would like to invite you to come and see my show. Well, it's not my show, I'm just doing the costumes, but YOUR SONG is one of the ones in our Broadway revue, and it's one of my favorites as well, and I, too, have stayed up until the wee hours with my two teenage daughters, biting our fingernails until the very end! I LOVE THIS MOVIE! AND THIS MUSICAL!

Sue Q said...

And I just wanted to say, also, that your husband is a dear. The song he gave you is very sentimental in a lot of ways, but I gather it has extra meaning for you. What a doll! I think you should keep him.

lovely

Susan Brady said...

CeCe should be proud to have both of you for parents, He rocks but so do you!

steveroni said...

I cannot decide who I think is the most fortunate--you, or Mr B--that you two are together--still.

You write a beautiful love story. I played the show "PHANTOM" so I could sing those words to the music, and you are 'right on', girl!

And I cannot wait for tomorrow to arrive, and find out "HOW IT HAPPENED"!!!
Love, from
Steve E. And Hugs also {{{Stacie}}}

I love Phantom of the Opera. Almost more than Les Miz. I am pretty sure that is blasphemy.

R Max said...

My favourite character from that movie is Carlotta... "... and I hate my hat!"

The kids were like, "She ATE her hat?"

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
