Next To Me | Personal


I don't think I have ever or will ever find the words to better describe Aaron than in this song:

You won't find him drinking at the tables
rolling dice and staying out til 3
you won't ever find him being unfaithful
you will find him, you'll find him next to me

You won't find him trying to chase the devil
for money, fame, for power, out of grief
you won't ever find him where the rest go
you will find him, you'll find him next to me

Next to me ooooh
Next to me ooooh
Next to me ooooh
You will find him, you'll find him next to me

When the money's spent and all my friends have vanished
and I can't seem to find no help or love for free
I know there's no need for me to panic
cause i'll find him, i'll find him next to me

When the skies are grey and all the doors are closing
and the rising pressure makes it hard to breathe
well, all I need is a hand to stop the tears from falling
I will find him, will find him next to me

Next to me ooooh
Next to me ooooh
Next to me ooooh
You will find him, you'll find him next to me

When the end has come and buildings falling down fast
when we spoilt the land and dried up all the sea
when everyone has lost their heads around us
you will find him you'll find him next to me

Never in my life have i met someone like him
I'm blown away by his love for me
if you ever wonder where it is you'll find him
you will find him, you will find him next to me

Aaron turned 30 last weekend and I wanted to write a blog post dedicated to him.  It didn't happen because I was too busy with my studio, my work, my business, my family, me, me, me.  Well, I regret that.  He is the most AMAZING husband a girl could ever ask for.  He works 50+ hours a week tirelessly.  And then, for the last few months, he leaves work and drives to my studio and works for another 3 hours.  He never complains; he knows how important my dreams are to me.  We've had a rough few years with my Dad's Leukemia diagnosis in 2010, him passing away 9 months later, and then the havoc it's wreaked on my family and my family's business.  Through that he has been next to me.  Every second, every hour, every day.  He even learned to shoot weddings because he knew it was important to me.  I truly believe that Aaron is a gift from God and I will cherish every moment we are blessed to spend together.
