My Heart ~ Tagged!

Dear sweet Simone over at The Bottom of the Ironing Basket has tagged me today. I met Simone on line while I was planning my wedding and although we have never met in person ~ I love her like a sister and hope to one day soon see her face to face.

So ~ without further ado:

With as much creativity as you can muster, show your heart in: a picture, a poem, a song (or piece of music), a phrase (or quote), an item of clothing, a place, and (just for fun) a Disney princess. If you want to join in, tag 6 more blogs."

Picture:


This is my husband ~ we will be celebrating 8 years married in August. He is the one that makes my heart happy.

Poem:
"Across the years I will walk with you -
in deep green forests; on shores of sand:
and when our time on earth is through,
in heaven, too, you will have my hand"

Song:
It is impossible for me to pick just one song as I have too many favorites. One that captures my heart is one that we played as our last waltz at our wedding and my dear sweet boy cried on my shoulder ~ Don Henley’s ~ "Taking You Home".

I had a good life
before you came
I had my friends and my freedom
I had my name

Still there was sorrow and emptyness
till you made me glad
oh and this love
i found strength
never knew i had

And this love
Is like nothing i have ever known
Take my hand
Im taking you home
Taking you home

There were days, lonely days
When the world
Wouldnt throw me a crumb
But i kept on believin
That this day would come

And this love
Is like nothig like i have ever known baby
Take my hand
Im takin you home
Im taking you home
Where we can be with the ones who really care
Home
Where we can grow old together
Keep you in my heart forever

Oh and this love
Is like nothing i have ever known
Take my hand
Taking you home
Taking you home

Yes I am


Quote:
Live ~ Laugh ~ Love



Yes Simone ~ I copied you on this one because it is my mantra.....

Item of Clothing:
Even though I adore my shoes ~ PJ’s are a fav of mine.


Place:
Our Cottage ~ Dorchester Cape, NB

This little spot in the woods is not fancy ~ it has to be "de-moused" (is that a word??) every spring ~ but it is one place where I can go ~ totally relax ~ feel close to nature ~ walk the beach ~ lay in the hammock ~ read a good book and last but certainly not least ~ feel my Dad's presence still.





Disney Princess:
What girl does not want to marry her prince charming! Really now!



So now it is my turn to tag but I am cheating with only 3 ~
