Thank You

This blog isn’t really about me or who I am or what I do. I figure if anyone wanted to know, they’d e-mail and ask.

I can tell you I am divorced, and have been for a couple of years now. I was married for about 10 years. When I got married, my ex-wife (she was actually my future wife at the time) was happy to plan 99% of the wedding details, as most women probably are. The one thing I asked her to let me do was to pick the song we would dance to at our reception. She was OK with letting me do that, even after I told her I wanted a Led Zeppelin song.

Way back when I was in high school, long before I knew my then wife-to-be, and long before I really thought I’d ever be married, I thought “Thank You” was a great love song.
“If the sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you /
When mountains crumble to the sea, there will still be you and me.”
I played her the song - she listened to the words and agreed it was appropriate, so “Thank You” it was.

Time goes on, though, and things happen. Like I said, we’re divorced now. "C'est la vie,” I suppose.

I gave a little bit of thought to what I should do for a Valentine’s Day post. Should I hunt up some quirky love songs? Should I be angry and bitter like I was about Christmas? Maybe just skip a post altogether? In the end, I decided I’d post this song. Even though my marriage didn’t work out, that doesn’t at all diminish the beauty of this simple little love song. Happy Valentine's Day.
