Have you ever felt an intense feeling where you can hardly breathe and nothing else matters? Where you feel taller, more beautiful, and the mountains could take a hike for all you care? Where you seem to float endlessly in the midst of continuous, uninterrupted bliss?
I felt like that when I first met my husband. I loved him with everything and I believe I could attain the impossible with him by my side…
Pass forward…. twenty-one years later.
Do I still feel like that? Do I blush when I look into his ever youthful face? Do I shiver with emotions when I stare into his brown eyes which seemed to dance with merry? Do I have the time to skip with him and steal him away from life’s endless concern?
Oh yeah… 🙂 I still do. And I consider myself fortunate! Although we have a very easy relationship, my husband knows I’m also blessed with friends who would stand by me when I need them. Why? Because I’ll do the same. I invest a lot in my relationships – not necessarily to get a healthy return but because I enjoy making people happy. And I want to use this medium to appreciate you the reader, my friends. 🙂 I am one lucky woman to be blessed with such awesome, lovely people. So if the sky should fall, I am safe, and you are too! 🙂
If the sky we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Oh and the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won’t cry, I won’t cry, no I won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me
I hope this week would be peaceful, joyful and that we would achieve our goals! I intend to have a pleasant week, and I sincerely wish you the same!
Much love, always!
😀 I haven’t heard Seal sing this before!! Love it!! Great post too …. 😀

That is lovely Seyi 🙂 SO glad that after 21 years you and your husband are still very much in love. Fantastic. Thank you for sharing it with us
Thanks for reading Al, we were both so lucky to have found each other! And I am very lucky to have a friend in you too!! 🙂 Thanks for being there, always!
Enduring song. Enduring truth. We existed before this place arose and shall outlive it.
Your comment always make me pause!
A beautiful love letter of soul mates. It reminds me of the book “Forever,” in which two souls meet before they are born.
You make me blush! Thanks for your kindness! 🙂
What a beautiful story to share Seyi!! I know I am not alone in feeling blessed by your post today…thank you for sharing…for passing out smiles!
Thank you so much Christina! I’m grateful for your kindness and visit!
Beautiful words (yours) and nice song. Thank you, pretty lady.
Thanks Dannie, I appreciate your kindness, it brought joy to my heart!
It will be 36 years this year – every moment is better than the one before.. My favourite quote about love is from George Eliot.
“What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life–to strengthen each other in all labor, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting?” George Eliot, Adam Bede
Wow!! 36 years is a great achievement!! You’re blessed indeed! I hope to get there as well!
I’ve been ruminating on the quote from George Eliot – it got me thinking – I even showed it to my husband and he loves it.
I’m very grateful for your visit and comment ma’am!
And I am grateful that we have connected!! 🙂
I’m honoured ma’am! 🙂

I love knowing that other people are as happy in their marriages as I am in mine. There’s no better blessing in the world! This is a great version of “Stand by Me.” Thank you for sharing it.

Thanks Christy! I’m blessed to be your friend!! One day, we might actually see each other physically! London is not that faraway! 🙂 🙂
Oh that would be lovely! I would enjoy that visit very much 🙂 Thanks for the smiles 🙂
The itching of laziness fell before me. Even before picking this book and hoping to read it. I passed my history, gruesome as it may be, it is full of regret opportunity and I said at this hurricane late momentum deep old grey.
I shrugged, when all seems already to late, why contemplating on what was never to be, those mistake of century to right, is never a work for wish I’m again use to. I knew, I must struggle against history to attempt to leave an image . To my immediate, believing I’am invincible. I must-then come the image of “If the Sky should fall”? remind me what I’ll remain of me………………………… Nice one to read.
Thank you, I also enjoyed reading your comment. It’s a joy to read. Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate it!
21 years, that is beyond impressive my friend. Your posts are awesome and they make me happy.
I’m beaming now, so glad you’re happy! Thanks for your visit and have a great weekend old friend!
You are both blessed to have each other. I am blessed in the same marriage with my husband as well. ♥
I’m glad to read that, and thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
You’re lucky to have found that special someone, Seyi. I would consider myself half as lucky as you are, if by next year I experience what you experienced 21 years ago. Blessings and love to you ♥
I hope you do my friend. People with gentle souls like you always meet their soul mates!:) My love and blessings to you too!
You are so blessed to have built such a wonderful relationship with your husband that’s still strong after 21 years!
Also, I didn’t realize Seal had covered this song — what a gorgeous version.
I agree with Christy! You are indeed blessed to be in a relationship with your husband for 21 years! Well then… I’m not surprised because you’ve got a good heart. Well done Seyi!!
Thank you so much Christy. I appreciate your kindness!
My pleasure Seyi! 🙂
Said it before, you are a girl with the heart the right place… 🙂
