Time in a Bottle
I also completed another set of circle journal pages. The theme of this one is your favorite song, so I had to make mine about "Time in a Bottle," because it is such a special song to my husband and me. You can click on the pictures to see them larger. The lyrics are on the left page. Journaling on the right page reads,
"This song has always been special for me. When Glen and I met, I was living in Omaha and he was living in Stillwater. We hit it off immediately. He came to Omaha every two or three weeks. We wrote letters to each other every few days and phoned frequently. After several weeks, I wrote Glen a letter in which I quoted these words from Time in a Bottle:
"I've looked around enough to know that you're the one I want to go through time with."
Glen went home for lunch the day my letter arrived. He went inside, put on a record, let his dog out, and fixed his lunch. Then he sat down to read my letter. Just as he got to my quote, the same song came on the record player.
This is just the first of many examples of a special connection that we have always shared. Frequently, one of us will say something, and the other one will say, "I was just thinking that." I guess it means we were meant to be together."
