Dance Partners

Every night, lovebug and I do therapy exercises here at home. There is one exercise we do, where we seem to be dancing. We are standing face to face, holding each other's hands, and we waltz across the floor twenty five times. We stare deep into each others eyes, it is an exercise for lovebugs balance. We both love this exercise, it really makes us smile. Actually, it makes us act like a couple of teenagers, giggle giggle. Last night, as we were dancing across the floor, I started singing to him. Here is what I was singing: Could I have this dance for the rest of my life? Would you be my partner every night? When we are together, it feels so right, could I have this dance for the rest of my life? Lovebug said yes, that I could have every dance, for the rest of his life. Forever dance partners, forever life partners, me and my precious lovebug.

Peggy said...

ohhh Denise...sweet blessings and happy dancing! I remember this song and love Anne Murray singing this. Though I have to sing and dance with God, not a sweet man like Lovebug, I find that His dance with me is such an honor and a lifelong dance!

awwww Denise...in the midst of all the pain, I'm so glad you both find time for love, a giggle and a dance. It's a good way to make the hard times, HIS TIME. This is so beautiful and so uplifting! I pray you enJOY each step of progress in this therapy and many SMILES for the miles ahead as dance partners for life! Beautiful the love you two share! Keep being young & seeking moments to delight in him & your King! I'm sure He's smiling too!

(((hugs)))love, and prayers,
Peggy
