Forever Young

In order to understand the full humor of this blog, you have to realize how long Zach has made fun of me for being a Rod Stewart fan. This used to embarrass me, but I have chosen to embrace it! He is a little cooky, but his music is great (to my ears)!

Fast forward to a car ride that we had today. The boys were buckeled up in the back seat, and Zach and I were driving home from a lunch with friends. We were listening to the radio when the song Forever Young by Rod Stewart started playing. Zach started making fun of me and telling the boys that they shouldn't listen to RS, he's a fake, yadda yadda.....that is.......until we both started listening to the lyrics to the song. As cheesy as it sounds...we were both almost in tears (some from laughter....some from strong emotions) listening to the words to this RS classic. Today, I leave you with these words. I dedicate this to my boys. love, mom.

ps. you can make fun of me for this anytime you want.

May the good Lord be with you
Down every road you roam
And may sunshine and happiness
Surround you when you're far from home
And may you grow to be proud
Dignified and true
And do unto others
As you'd have done to you
Be courageous and be brave
And in my heart youll always stay
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young

May good fortune be with you
May your guiding light be strong
Build a stairway to heaven
With a prince or a vagabond

And may you never love in vain
And in my heart you will remain
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young
Forever young
Forever young

And when you finally fly away
I'll be hoping that I served you well
For all the wisdom of a lifetime
No one can ever tell

But whatever road you choose
I'm right behind you, win or lose
Forever young, forever young
Forever young ,forever young
Forever young, forever young
For, forever young, forever young

I love the new pictures! I haven't even met them yet and I already love them... Maybe it's because I love you so much! I miss you. -Mo

I was watching this british show a few weeks ago with nick and one of the characters said (in reference to someone unpopular winning the city councilman election): "He's got as much chance as a virgin on a date with Rod Stewart!" Ha! I love Rod Stewart too, he's amazing.
