Twenty years ago today, I said
to this guy...
Because this is the man God had for me....
... I am Mum to these four blessings,
... I get to walk on the machair with this mutt and his master,
... I get to have my kitchen utensils fixed. Builder style.
... I get to work in the plot, and look up to this,
I hadn't known that if I 'buy-one-I-get-two-free'...
...I get to look out of my kitchen window at this.
...I get to wear these and get told I'm lovely,
...my kids get to work in the fresh air.
Yes, often they'd choose to work in air that was less, er, fresh.
And often they'd choose not to work at all!
...I get to admire the Butt from my kitchen window too.
Girls, girls.... you know I mean the Butt of Lewis.
... I get to admire this sky in mid-winter mornings,
... What was that about 'buy one get two free'??
...I get to have these arms ALL to myself
And I get this.
Twenty years of giving it. And twenty years of receiving it...
From this guy.
