Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

Just a Little Buble

Our adult children and their spouses, surprised us for our 33rd Anniversary, last June, with a evening of romance.  Two tickets to Michael Buble, to encourage two battle scared parents, to enjoy an evening of romance.

The concert was outstanding.  The audience a mixture of multiple generations.  Re-makes of songs older than  the young singer, were enjoyed by all generations.  The light shows astonishing and when the hearts fell from the ceiling, you just knew the whole point was to "fall in Love".  He even stops at one point in the concert to remind you to think on "why you fell in love" in the first place.  I think that is a very good word for most couples.  Life can wring you out at times.

Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread: remade all the time, made new.
                                                   Ursula K. LeUgin

Married life is a mosaic of little things,
Little touches,
Little words,
Little smiles of encouragement,
Little expressions of endearment

He moved to the second stage which was within feet of our wonderful seats.  Here he went back to the 70's era for this tunes.  (Sorry on pictures...phone pics.)

What's terrible is to pretend that second-rate is first-rate.  To pretend that you don't need love when you do; or you like your work when you know quite well your's capable of better.
Doris Lossing

There are just seasons of marriage that you dig deep.  You pull yourself from the pit that situations have put you in and you remind yourself that you want first-rate, not second-rate.  You allow an evening of music, provided for by your adult children, to rekindle what the enemy so strongly wants to extinguish.

You take the lead of the singer, as he sings through some of your favorite romantic songs, and you remember why you fell in Love.
One advantage of marriage is that, when you fall out of love with him or he falls out of love with you, it keeps you together until you fall in again.  ~Judith Viorst

Thanks kids...it was a wonderful evening and one of the best Anniversary gifts ever....love you,

How nice! I could listen to him sing all day. Love the quotes you shared here.

Angel said...

What a thoughtful gesture from your kids, giving you the gift of romance, of remembering why you fell in love. Beautiful!

Debbie said...

Now that sounds like my kind of evening. What a nice thing for them to do! Glad you enjoyed it!

Sharon said...

How lovely!

And all the quotes about marriage were so good, too. It's really hard work sometimes, but at least I do the work along with my friend, my hubby!


Sonja Goodson said...

Good for your kids, and good for the 2 of you!! Yep... sometimes it's just good to go and do something just for the wonderful fun of it. Life has plenty of the other kind of stuff... his music is so relaxing and easy on the heart! :)

Happy happy Anniversary!

Nancy said...

You have the sweetest and most thoughtful kids; wonder who modeled those qualities for them?
I am so glad you were able to go and enjoy yourselves; his music is wonderful....

Sue said...

What a beautiful evening for both of you! I agree with your thoughts on rekindling that love! and what better way than to hear love songs by one of your favorite singers, and mine too! Thanks for sharing.

Lea said...

Oh, I love, love Michael! And, I'd love to attend one of his concerts. I'd say your kids get an A+ for sure. What an exciting year you have had. So, so happy for you!

This is interesting as he is in our city this weekend and they are talking about it on the radio. I had heard his name but didn't really know what he was about. What a neat gift your kids gave you!

Christine said...

I think I would of come unglued when the hearts fell from the ceiling.
You and your hubby have raised your children to reflect all the LOVE that you two have, God, Spouse, Children, others and self.

Love Buble!

How wonderful! I can't think of a better "date".

What a wonderful gift from obviously thoughtful and appreciative children. You are blessed Janette. And, taking the time to re-discover each other is so important in this upside down world.

After losing two husbands, and my Bill losing two wives, we know how precious life is. Not a day passes that we do not re-avow our love and commitment, painfully aware that we may not get the chance to say those things later.

I am sure your evening's glow will last for a long, long time. God bless you and your family, Janette.

What a fabulous way to celebrate your anniversary! I love Michael Buble's music. I watched a special on TV last Christmas and was so glad that he introduced his family at the end. I have a Pandora station of Michael Buble music that I listen to.

Love you,

Marsha Young said...

Debi said...

What a treat! Love his songs.
