life lyrics ... spin cycle.

jen over at spriteskeeper asked us to spin cycle a song that is meaningful to us in some way. this is the first one that came to mind ... and i plopped the lyrics in here at one point this week when i actually had time and wasn't dealing with a (still) sick baby. (yes ... we are going back in to try and figure this out today ... poor girl can't breathe well - very rapid very shallow - and is still running a temp. send back up. funny how crap like this always comes at a time when there isn't any back up ... for a whole week. ugh. but he has so offered to come home. i haven't taken him up on it ... but love that he is more than willing. love you. come home soon, though ... mmm-k?)

so basically ... you aren't getting much of an intro to this post.

it's a song ... that's how you know it's love ... by deanna carter.

one of my best friends sang it at our wedding ... but i continue to sing it to the girly-girls. 'cause it still applies.

love.
that's really what it's all about.

if you ...
get out in the drivin' rain
stand in the eye of the hurricane
and never think twice

if you ...
turn your back on selfishness
and your thoughts are for someone else
'cause they changed your life

that's how you know it's love
that's how you know it's meant to be

when the span of forever
just never seems long enough

that's how you know it's love

when your heart
insists that you give it all
when you no longer
fear the fall

and you just let go
when the past
is finally dead and gone
fate leads you somewhere
to the one

that has your soul

that's how you know it's love

that's how you know it's meant to be

when the span of forever
just never seems long enough

that's how you know it's love

no part of you questions
no part of you doubts

you're only sure this is what love's about
nothing and no one can stand in your way
or keep you from sayin' what your heart is dyin' to say

that's how you know it's love

that's how you know it's meant to be

when the span of forever
just never seems long enough
that's how you know it's love

I've never heard this song-amazing lyrics! I'm a firm believer in that to love and be loved is our sole purpose as human beings. I'm gonna go "find" this song-thanks for the head's up! Your poor sick girl! I hope that you and your daughter get through this really soon! Take care and stay warm! :)
