Love is Blue

I loved this song at one time. It was "our song" with my high school boyfriend.

I should have picked up on it being a sad song and indicative of how that that relationship was going to turn out. Oh well, most of us had to have some less than ideal experiences to learn about ourselves and what we want, need and will accept in future relationships.

I'd like to say I was smart, learned well and set forth with confidence when I met my husband a few years later at the ripe old age of 19, but really I was just lucky. My guardian angel knew what he/she was doing and prodded me to go out with my friends that night many years ago.

On Christmas Eve, my engagement ring will be 36 years old. The blues that I have known all these years have my favorite blues, not the "blue" of that earlier sad song.

Oh, I meant to tell you where I find my favorite daily dose of blue. It is my husband's eyes.

Ah, you romantic you: "your husband's eyes." I do love that Blue song. I love those blue hearts too. That'd make a pretty button for Blue Monday.

You did not make a Permalink; people might not be able to get to this after today. See rule #3.
