If Duc and I had an anthem it would be this song, Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours". As I've said before, I felt Duc presence long before I ever saw his photo or held him and this song became my mantra and every time the lyric "It's our God forsaken right to be loved, loved, loved" played I would tear up. I do prefer his live version because he has since changed it to God-given right which sounds much better.

Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks
Now I'm trying to get back
Before the cool done run out
I'll be giving it my bestest
And nothing's gonna to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it's again my turn to win some or learn some
But I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm yours
Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find love love love love
Listen to the music of the moment, maybe sing with me
All - ah peaceful melody
And it's our God-forsaken right to be loved love loved love loved
So I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short

This is our fate, I'm yours

Thankfully, Duc loves this song. It was one of the first I played for him and every time he hears it on the radio a peaceful expression takes over his face and he grooves to the music.

I found this video today and I have to admit, the boy looks like an older version of Duc! Given the number of times Duc has heard the song I'm sure he will be able to play it before much longer, AND he will know the words!

thats amazing! I love that song, and I think the guitar is a BRILLIANT instrument to learn! Perhaps we'll see Duc strummin' sooner than you think!

Love that song. Someone sent me this video because she thought it looked like Aiden. Um no, but you are right, it does look like Duc!

I'm finally catching up on my blog reading, and it looks like I've missed a lot!! Those pictures with Aiden and Eliie are so sweet! I just read an article about how important those connections are for our children, so I am so glad that you are able to keep getting together with them. Happy first year together to you both, and have a very Happy New Year, too!
