this side of the world

                                                     if        there           ever      was
                                                     a     little   piece    of      heaven
                                                     this  side  of the  world     above
                                                     i'm sharing it with you my  loves
                                                     life      isn't       perfectly    spun
                                                     no              promises        made
                                                     of                perfect            time
                                                     and        when        you      think 
                                                     it's      sunny        side       down
                                                     sometimes      the  rain  falls  up
                                            right             here             and               now
                          i'm       wrapped        in      love
                          it's    holding    me      tight
                         like a  bug   in   a rug
                          and    i   wouldn't
                           trade   my   life
                          for a trillion
                          million
                           bottled
                          stars
                          <3

and her too:)

Nothing better to treasure than family and what a good looking one you have, Alexis. Love the sweet look on your little boy's face.

"right here an now" is the most important, Alexis. So much beauty and happiness radiating from your children - it takes my breath away. (I also see you have your hands full!)
