Something you may not know about me is that I am a huge Carpenters fan. I love the way they sing and I have been interested in their lives for a very long time. While I was on blogcation, I read a new book called Little Girl Blue~The Life of Karen Carpenter it is by Randy L. Schmidt. If you are a fan of the Carpenters, get the book and read it.
I share this interest with my younger brother, Andrew. We spend many hours listening to Carpenters music and trying to find out as much information about them as we could. I was the best man when he got married six years ago. As part of my speech, I used Carpenter song titles. I thought I would share that section of the speech with you
I am sure that it seems like is was Only Yesterday that you were saying to yourselves, "I Need to be in Love." Everyone you knew kept saying, "It's Going to Take Some Time", but you were tired of playing Solitaire. You kept asking yourselves, "Where Do I Go From Here?" Then on an ordinary law school day, you saw a Sweet, Sweet Smile and your heart began to Sing. You attended many parties and dances and felt like you had a Superstar on your arm. You longed for the day that one of you would look at the other and say, "I Won't Last a Day Without You." Then on a cold January day, Those Good Old Dreams came true. He got down on one knee and said, "Because We Are in Love, Let Me Be The One." Now the day has arrived. You've walked down the isle and Ave Maria has been sung. You are finally man and wife and you are on Top of the World, but you keep saying to yourselves, "We've Only Just Begun.
So here is to Andrew and Amy, may your love only grow stronger and deeper and help see you through all the Rainy Days and Mondays. May you always guard against Hurting Each Other. From This Moment On, may your life together be long and happy. May you always find complete contentment and acceptance in each others arms. May your love always be Close to You until the End of the World. And no matter how old you get may you always whisper in each others ears, "Touch Me When We're Dancing."
Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More. I appreciate you stopping by and I hope that you will come back as often as you can. Always remember the finest love stories come after the wedding not before.
All My Best,
