This is how I felt when I met my wife for the first time almost fourteen years ago. Blissfully married for twelve years and raising three incredible children has inspired me to feel the same way with every breath I take. The immeasurable love my wife and children give to me, I unconditionally give back to them. I was a junior in high school when Billy Ocean’s “Suddenly” hit the airwaves. I continue to enjoy singing this song after 27 years. And
now, I’m singing this for my wife on Mother’s Day 2012. Happy Mother’s Day, my love! =)
“Suddenly” happens to be a favorite of my Mother-in-Law also! Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom, my Mother-in-Law, and all Moms!
