Thank you!

I'm a little nervous to post this because I think often times people get the wrong idea but I feel like this thank you is a bit overdue so I'll go ahead with it.
I'm so thankful to Sam's family. I feel so welcome at family get togethers or just brief visits. For a few of them it has taken sometime and I can see it's still a slow move uphill but everyone has made improvements and that is what I'm grateful for.
I want to make clear that I have never been given the impression that they accept Sam and mys' relationship or agree with it. I know where they stand in their beliefs and what they believe.
I love them all very much and I'm happy with the relationships I have built. I'm so glad Sam was raised in such a wonderful, loving family. I know they played a major part in who she is today.
Thanks guys!

You're There

What if we stop having a ball?
What if the paint chips from the wall?
What if there's always cups in the sink?
And what if I'm not what you think I am?

What if I fall further than you?
What if you dream of somebody new?
What if I never let you win?
And chase you with a rolling pin?
Well? What if I do?

Cuz I am giving up on making passes and
I am giving up on half empty glasses and
I am giving up on greener grasses
I am giving up.

What if our baby comes in after nine?
What if your eyes close before mine?
What if you lose yourself sometimes?
Then I'll be the one to find you,
Safe in my heart.

Thank you, my Weese. For always being there, even when I didn't deserve it.
