Thank You For A Life

My wife, Chrisy is going to South Africa for a short term mission. She leaves April 28 and returns May 15. Seventeen days without her. I just received the terrific new Kris Kristofferson album, THIS OLD ROAD, for my birthday. Track 10 laid me out! It's called "Thank You For A Life" and I wish I had written it for Chrisy. I print these lyrics in tribute to the love of my life:

THANK YOU FOR A LIFE

Thank you for a life that I'd call happy
Overlooking all that we've been through
When it comes to loving I've been lucky
Everything I am I owe to you

Thank you for the little girls you gave me
Thank you for them bouncing baby boys
Thank you for the sadness
That you saved me from the madness, baby
All I'm crying now are tears of joy

Thank you for that burning sun that's rising
Golden in the air that smells so sweet
Thank you for that empty far horizon
That opens to a new eternity

Thank you for a life that I'd call happy
Overlooking all that we've been through
When it comes to loving I've been lucky
Everything I am I owe to you

--Kris Kristofferson

Thank you for my life also. I would not change a thing. I love you more than words can say. Here's to 50 more years together of fun and joy.
