True confession time and why not! When we took early retirement, Jack gifted me with the car of my dreams. After a lifetime of driving the tried and true cars, I chose a beautiful blue hardtop convertible and just love driving on top-down days. Yesterday was a top-down day. Well, most summer days are! When friends come to visit, we enjoy that car and our talks away from the men!
I was returning from seeing an elderly friend cheering her up with fresh strawberries, angel food cake and a little whipped cream. We chatted just a little while. Then I was on my way home.
The sun was out and the temperature was about 80 degrees with a gentle breeze and, of course, the music was playing. Easy drive, no traffic and I was humming right along. Then the music on the radio stopped me cold as I drove home. I was listening to an oldie playlist and the song coming from the radio was a "just married" song of ours and I was in heaven. Driving in the sunshine, temp so easy and the breeze through my hair, I felt like a young woman in my head. I thought of my Jack and my tummy did a big flip flop just the way it used to in those falling in love days.
Every since I was 17, and knew this was my guy, I wait for these moments that bring that feeling right back.......... it is the song on the radio, through the fancy speakers in the car. The song remembers when. So you know that Trisha Yearwood song? One of the lines in the song is "it was like a lighted match had been tossed into my soul". Exactly! Precisely! My Jack turns me on and he knows exactly how to do it. It always keeps me coming back for more and I was all of a sudden really looking forward to getting home to my guy.
When I got home and we were preparing dinner, I asked him if he had those moments...... the song remembers when and we are once again in those early years. His answer was to take me in his arms and dance me around the kitchen and then to give me a sensual good girl right there as dinner simmered on the stove.
I put full responsibility on ttwd which gives us the framework to return to the way of those just married people we once were.
Do you remember back to when you fell in love hearing the song remembers when? Does the music take you back? Music is such a strong language. Tell us!
