Week 9: The 5 Minute Challenge – In your eyes

I have a confession. I totally love cheesy romance music. Like Celine Dion and old Whitney and Boys II Men and BabyFace. Nelson took me to a Celine Dion concert when we were dating and based on my behavior there (hysterical crying and shouting “I LOVE YOU CELINE” – No lie!) I am amazed that he still put a ring on my finger!  He did, however, veto my first dance song choice of “The Power of Love”.   😉

One of my all time favorite songs is Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes”. Even though it’s not meant to be sung to your child, the lyrics hit home for me. Not only because Evie has the most spectacular blue prismatic sparkly eyes that I’ve ever seen, but because when I look in her eyes, my life really is complete.  I can see all the good things in the world: endless optimism, the ability to be friends with anyone, the grand journey that awaits you each day.

In your eyes
I am complete
In your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
In your eyes
The resolution of all the fruitless searches
In your eyes

Until next time,
