  • I would live life in the fast lane, but I am married to a speed bump.

  • I'll always have a place in my heart for you.

  • I'll love you forever and a day!

  • I'll love you 'til the day I die.

  • I'm glad I took a chance and followed my heart - because it led me to yours.

  • I'm lost without your love

  • I'm a Prisoner of your love on bended knee - (proposal or wedding)

  • If I Knew…

    If I knew it would be the last time
    That I'd see you fall asleep,
    I would tuck you in more tightly
    and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

    If I knew it would be the last time
    that I see you walk out the door,
    I would give you a hug and kiss
    and call you back for one more.

    If I knew it would be the last time
    I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
    I would video tape each action and word,
    so I could play them back day after day.

    If I knew it would be the last time,
    I could spare an extra minute
    to stop and say "I love you,"
    instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.

    If I knew it would be the last time
    I would be there to share your day,
    Well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
    so I can let just this one slip away.

    For surely there's always tomorrow
    to make up for an oversight,
    and we always get a second chance
    to make everything just right.

    There will always be another day
    to say "I love you,"
    And certainly there's another chance
    to say our "Anything I can do?"

    But just in case I might be wrong,
    and today is all I get,
    I'd like to say how much I love you
    and I hope we never forget.

    Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
    young or old alike,
    And today may be the last chance
    you get to hold your loved one tight.

    So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
    why not do it today?
    For if tomorrow never comes,
    you'll surely regret the day,

    That you didn't take that extra time
    for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
    and you were too busy to grant someone,
    what turned out to be their one last wish.

    So hold your loved ones close today,
    and whisper in their ear,
    Tell them how much you love them
    and that you'll always hold them dear

    Take time to say "I'm sorry,"
    "Please forgive me," "Thank you," or "It's okay."
    And if tomorrow never comes,
    you'll have no regrets about today.

  • It's So Much Friendlier with Two

  • The Jewish view of marriage is that marriage is a fusion of the souls, a partnership for life. God created the first man, Adam, and the first woman, Eve, from one body. Marriage returns us to oneness. Men and women become complete through marriage. Rabbinic tradition teaches that a marriage will only be peaceful if God is a part of the union.

    The Hebrew word for man is EISH, which is spelled Aleph - Yud - Shin. The Hebrew word for woman is EISHA, which is spelled Aleph - Shin - Hay. The letters Yud and Hay combine to form the Hebrew name for God. Removing the letters Yud and Hay (God) from the words EISH and EISHA, leaves the letters Aleph and Shin. Aleph and Shin spell ESH, which is the word for fire.

    Thus, Judaism teaches that if God is not made a part of the union between a man and a woman, then the couple will be left with fire.

  • Just as blossoms unfold, so may your love.

Tips:

-- Write a tribute or letter to the people you love. What do they do that you love? List the lessons they have taught you. Write a letter every five years. Watch your love evolve with time.

-- I found my grandparents' love letters in a box while cleaning. I scrapped them into their album and with their wedding picture. Of course they were hand written on beautiful stationary. My grandfather's letters were on hotel stationary because he was traveling for work.

-- I made copies of some of the mushier passages of love letters and collaged them onto acid free paper and use them in many love pages.

-- Save the envelopes for the post office stamps and interesting stamps. Scrap them into travel collages.

-- Find `your song' lyrics on this sight or on Google and copy them onto vellem paper. Lay it over your Wedding pictures, engagement pictures, outside pictures, wrapping paper, anything really. My sister-in-law sang Always. I have a picture of her singing at the alter and the words are vellemed to her right.
