Every River

Over the past couple of days I’ve been reflecting upon everyone who has helped me along the way, and all the people that I know will continue to support me as I continue my journey. As you can imagine, there are too many to list here but I just wanted to say thank you (you all know who you are).

There is one person though that deserves a post of his own, and that’s my husband Jonathon.

Since we met in 2006 my life has changed. It changed by meeting him, but it also changed by the impact of M.E. He has stood by me every single step of the way. I can honestly say that without him I would not be in the place I am right now. Physically and mentally he’s my rock. He’s also my best friend and we get on so well together, I am incredibly lucky.

I could go on and on but I don’t want this getting overly soppy. However I want to share this song with you. It was our first dance at our wedding and the lyrics mean just as much now, perhaps even more, as they did then.

Our First Dance

Every River – Runrig, I’ve chosen the Loch Ness live version of this song as we were there. I remember standing in the dark, my legs couldn’t work any longer and I was leaning on Jonathon as this song played.

The following lyrics mean so much to me. In fact they are more relevant today than ever.

Every river I try to cross

Every hill I try to climb

Every ocean I try to swim

Every road I try to find

All the ways of my life

I’d rather be with you

There’s no way

Without you

My life is full of metaphorical rivers I have to cross and hills I have to climb. I am never alone though, Jonathon is always there to help me along the way.

Thank you Jonathon. Tha gaol agam ort. xxxx
