I'm Yours...and yours...and yours...and yours

I saw Jason Mraz on SNL this past week. He sang the song "I'm Yours". And I fell in love with the song. I'd heard it before, but never really listened to all the words. I think it is the perfect song for our family. You can find the complete lyrics here and the music video here, but my favorite verses go as follows:

Well you done done me and you bet I felt it, I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted. I fell right through the cracks and now I'm trying to get back. {This makes me think of just Richard and I, of course. No kids involved here unless you count...well, I think you get where I'm going...}

Listen to the music of the moment people. Dance and sing. We're just one big family and it's our God-intended right to be loved, loved, loved, loved, loved. {OK, so here the family comes in. We love to dance and sing and listen to music and be loved. There's even a "loved" for each member of our family right now!}

I guess what I be sayin' is there ain't no better reason to rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons. It's what we aim to do. Our name is our virtue. {Hello? Our name is Worth!}

I love it when I love a song like this. Now every time I hear it I'll have happy thoughts about all the great loves of my life. Richard, Naomi, Asher, and Isaiah. I'm theirs. You best believe. Best believe, I'm theirs.

I can't wait to check that song out... we have a family song that we made up and it's done wonders for reminding us we love each other!
