The House That Love Built

You will find me.

 We'll buy some land in the country and build our house by hand.
Everything inside will be made by us.
We'll have a front porch with a swing.  
In the back will be a garden where we'll grow our own food & flowers.
We'll sit on the porch swing every evening and watch the sunset.

Then, one day we'll be blessed with a blond curly haired, brown eyed girl with cupid's bow lips and will fill the house with 6 of them.
Our home will be showered with laughter every day and we'll both stay there to teach them.

You'll have a place to work and when you're ever away, you'll return to have your girls yell 'Daddy's Home!'
They'll run out the door to embrace you and you'll be surrounded by bouncy yellow curls and sweet little faces hugging and kissing you.
You'll smile at me and I'll smile back, knowing we'd made this promise to each other.

And when we're old and the last girl has left, we'll curl up together on that porch swing and watch the sunset.

When the time comes for us, we'll both lie down, 
cuddled together in a lace of arms and legs.
God will take us at the same time and the girls will know it was the way we were meant to leave.  

For we will travel into the next life arm in arm. 
There will be no sadness.
Only love.

The girls will understand.  
They'll be proud of us and miss us.  
That is how we'll leave our mark.  
Six beautiful, happy, loving girls who will teach their children to love.

Because they grew up in....

The house that love built.
