Because You Love Me - Jo Dee Messina


I don't know how I survived
In this cold and empty world
For all this time
I only know that I'm alive
Because you love me

When I recall what I've been through
There's some things
That I wish I didn't do
Now I do the things I do
Because you love me

And now that you're in my life
I'm so glad I'm alive
'Cause you showed me the way
And I know now how good it can be
Because You love me

And now that you're in my life
Oh, I'm so glad I'm alive
'Cause you showed me the way
And I know now how good it can be
Because you love me

I believe in things unseen
I believe in the message of a dream
And I believe in what you are
Because you love me

With all my heart and all my soul
I'm loving you and I never will let go
And every day I'll let it show
Because you love me
Because you love me
Because you love me

Oh my that's a lot of photos! :) Thank you for sharing them, though because they were great! You can tell that you're surrounded by a ton of wonderful people! I really love the last pic best, though. The black and white with your little family is just so sweet!

Stephanie of Gumdrop Pass said...

Hey pretty lady! What a fun look back -- I'm so jealous of your ability to capture so many good moments! I have such trouble remembering to take pictures... or just trouble being lazy, I suppose.

I can't wait to see this post NEXT year to see what all THIS year is going to bring you! :)

Aleisha McD said...

I am seeing a trend in every picture: fantastic accessories, fabulous makeup! WOO-WEE, you are smokin'! Um, you know the peacock feather necklace??? Can I have it?? HA HA HA! Enjoyed this post immensely. What a great idea, to look back over the year. Thinking of you tonight...and you bet I'm eating Oreos right now! HA HA! Love ya!

Stephanie @ Blonde Highlights said...

LOVE ALL THOSE PICS! It was so much fun to live your memories with you! Although, is it terrible for me to say that one of my fave pics was the pic of the kitty and the corona!?!?!? It is isn't it!! So much fun to remember the good times! I gave you a little shout out on my blog today (eg: that I wanted to be able to get a dirty martini with you, but it's a little difficult since we live 2000 miles apart! :)). XOXO

Beautiful girly!!! You take so many pics. I need to do a much better job of doing that. Thanks so much for the sweet comments on my last post. I figured that writing it all out might help me from becoming absolutely nuts. we'll see.

Judy Haughton-James said...
