I have been a wife and mother for over twenty years. Now I am becoming my husband's lover, too.
We owe it all to my fellow bloggers who gave me the courage to come out to my husband as a spanko.
I do feel like this is a New Beginning for us.

The Luckiest


Remember what LJ gave me for mother’s day? It was a CD with songs that were special to him for one reason or another. They really are good and I am enjoying the CD but one song in particular stays in my head and I really want to share it with you. There are several reasons that it touches me. One is simply that it is beautiful if you can find a way to hear this on line you will see how the classic piano really adds to the song.

A second reason I love it is what LJ wrote me about it:

This is the song Collin gave me this Valentine’s Day, and I have ever heard a more beautiful love song. It’s not the traditional love song and that is exactly what I love about it.

I love knowing that my son is love by someone sensitive enough to give him this song and really mean it.

But the third reason I love this song so much is that I thought of many of my friends here when I first heard it. I guess it could really be any of us because I think we all think of ourselves as the ‘Luckiest’. But for some reason CeeCi and Mojo, Dave and Cindy, and Cassie and Tom came to mind.

The Luckiest

i don’t get many things right the first time
In fact, i am told that a lot
Now i know all the wrong turns, the stumbles and falls
Brought me here

And where was i before the day
That i first saw your lovely face?
Now i see it everyday
And i know


That i am
I am
I am
The luckiest

What if i’d been born fifty years before you
In a house on a street where you lived?
Maybe i’d be outside as you passed on your bike
Would i know?

And in a white sea of eyes
I see one pair that i recognize
And i know


That i am
I am
I am
The luckiest

I love you more than i have ever found a way to say to you

Next door there’s an old man who lived to his nineties
And one day passed away in his sleep
And his wife; she stayed for a couple of days
And passed away

I’m sorry, i know that’s a strange way to tell you that i know we belong
That i know


That i am
I am
I am
The luckiest

  1. Did you mean to make me cry? I'm listening to the song right now as I'm typing this comment. I downloaded it from iTunes and can't wait to share it and your words with MoJo.

    Tell LJ thank you from one of your blogging friends for passing this song along. He's blessed to be loved by someone who would dedicate this lovely song to him.

    Wow, what a gift you've given me today. Thank you, I'm going to listen to it again.

    ciao bella~

  4. "Catch in my heart"... EXACTLY!!!! So beautiful, both the song, the lyrics, the love, the passion, the knowing, the appreciation. Of lovers and sons and daughters and husbands and wives and everything in between!

    I really must agree... Cassie and Tom were the first in my mind, but you and Nick, well, you belong right up there with LJ and Collin. They (and you) are very, very lucky... but even better, you realize and appreciate it, and then you take it a step farther and share it with the world!

    Love you, girl!

  6. PK,
    This is a beautiful, beautiful song. Collin must care a great deal for LJ. I would have commented this morning but like CeeCi the song made me cry. In fact I had to redo my make up before I could leave! Thank you for sharing this with us.

    Love,
    Cassie

    Tiggr,
    I was just so blown away by the song and the fact that Collin gave it to LJ then the folks here came to mind as I listened more and more.

    Em,
    CeeCi's a doll!!

    Cassie,
    I didn't mean to make anyone cry but I do feel you and Tom are truly among the luckiest.

    Eva,
    I truly can't wait for you to get here and meet the gang!!

    Paul,
    I feel like LJ and Collin are both mine and I am very proud of them.

    Grace,
    I am so glad you like the song and you are going to make me blush!
