Can't Take My Eyes Off You

I just remembered something I haven't shared with you. During our long-distance relationship, I used to call my hubby once a month. One time I suggested singing to each other hue he he he he...and he said that he had to write down the lyrics first so that he would be able to sing for me on the phone. He had NEVER done it before and after he was done singing, he said he would NEVER do that again HA HA HA HA HA...

Wonder what he sang? He sang "500 Miles". Yeah, that classic song! He sang the WHOLE song as he had the lyrics with him when I called HE HE HE HE HE...I don't remember anymore what I sang for him, but it wasn't a complete song (yeah, I cheated HA HA HA...).

This morning hubby left me a VERY sweet note again. I want to SQUEEZE that guy SO tightly in my arms right now...He wrote the note in Finnish (I requested this so that I could learn more Finnish), but the English translation of it would be something like this:

"Morning, Love. Today's the last Friday of the month, or should I say 'again'? Time does fly so fast, but my love for you only grows with time. You're the best. I don't know if I can go home for lunch, but I'll see you when I see you. Love you."

On a sad note, I just received an email this morning from my missionary friend, Daniel Huisman (his name is on my blogroll) that his beloved sister died two days ago. She had been suffering from cancer for a while. :-((((

Then I also received a message from my close friend yesterday about one of her acquaintances. She's married and she has a little boy (around 2 years old, I think). Her Dad has glaucoma and Parkinson's disease and he's lost one eye already. She just found out months ago that her son's autistic (it can cost A LOT for the child's education 'coz in Indo there are no benefits like in Finland for example). And that's not all. On top of that, turns out that her husband's got tumor and they don't know yet how acute it is.

This reminds me how fragile life is. I told the above story to my hubby last night and said to him, "Health is PRICELESS." It seems to me that ever since I moved here, I'm reminded again and again about cherishing everything I have.

I'd love to share this song with all of you. I ADORE the "refrain" part 'coz it feels SO fragile..."Can't Take My Eyes Off You" by Damien Rice.

I LOVE gazing at my hubby - sometimes it bothers him, but I just LOVE watching his gorgeous facial features...mmm...and I wanna remember EVERY single thing about him...I wanna make the most out of the time I still have left with him. I don't wanna live my life with regrets. Enjoy the song and remember how fragile life is...


  1. aahhh love :) im actually aboutt to write a blog about "love" haha so go check it out a little later. thanks for the wishes on a smooth pregnancy. i am trying not to eat to much and yes babies are expensive and shes not even here yet!

  2. Hi, Holly! THX for dropping by and sure I'll go check out your blog again later he he he...;-D

  3. Actually saw Damien Rice live at Werchter festival. Liked his 9 Crimes better...think 8 years ago I'd love him but now listening to his CD brings out the same reaction as when I tried James Blunt - id rather shoot myself in the head :P. I like painful soulful heartbreaking depressing songs, but these were more crybaby can't handle life to my ear. But this is just my ears hehehe... Back in uni you should see the girls look of scorn everytime they look at my music heroes laden textbooks hihihi...

    But at least Damien's song really fits the movie - watched it just a few weeks ago

    ANYWAAAYYY...lucky you for having such a sweetheart who leaves lovenotes every now and then :D:D:D
    Hope you both keep on cherishing each other with the same fire though the years ;)

  4. Fei: WA HA HA HA HA HA HA...Shoot yourself in the head? LOL!!!

    I dislike the movie, though the song sticks in my head. The song did fit the movie, but I dislike the movie itself ha ha ha...

    Yeah, I sure hope that we'll stay fiery through the years. ;-D Actually at one point he did stop writing the love notes, but then I protested and asked him to write them in Finnish instead, so he's been writing them again HE HE HE HE HE HE HE...

  5. Life is fragile indeed. It's good that you've put things in the right perspective.

  6. Blur Ting: Yeah, it's important to remember the most important things in life. :-)))

  7. I am touched! this is a good post yet I make me sad... sorry about what happen to your close friend.. I really knew how she felt, I pray that her hubby tumor is not acute.. :((

  8. Trinity: Yeah...gladly I heard yesterday that the hubby's tumor's not acute. Hopefully he'll be fine and the tumor will never do anything bad to his body system.
