The Soundtrack of Our Life

Another year has passed.  Another year full of laughter, tears, hope, sorrow, joy.  Adventures have been taken, memories have been made, goals achieved and dreams fulfilled.  This week is full of anniversaries for our family, but today Rick and I celebrate 27 years of marriage.  It hasn't all been lollipops and lemon drops or sunshine and roses, but what good story ever is free of conflict or adversity.

We have a child who loves his music (aka Wil) and so has created different playlists to fit the moment.  This got me thinking - The soundtrack of a movie moves the story along as effectively as any dialogue.  So I posed the question to my family: What songs would you include in the soundtrack of our life together or what is the "Rick and Ann" playlist.  And here is the very eclectic list, in alphabetical order cause you can always push shuffle, that resulted:

Amazing Grace
Circle of Our Love; Saturday's Warrior
The Dance; Garth Brooks
Families Can Be Together Forever
Forever and Ever Amen; Randy Travis
Happy To Be Stuck With You; Huey Lewis and the News*
Heat of the Moment; Asia
Heaven is a Place on Earth; Belinda Carlisle
Hollywood Nights; Bob Seger
More Than a Feeling; Boston
Night Moves; Bob Seger
A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief
Remember When; Alan Jackson
The River; Garth Brooks
Something That We Do; Clint Black
Turn the Page; Bob Seger
Unanswered Prayers; Garth Brooks
Winnie the Pooh
You're My Home; Billy Joel

*This is most definitely our theme song, because it was the first song out of everyone's mouth.

How we celebrate:
Last night to celebrate, we decided to do the cliche' date and went to dinner and a movie.  Without telling you the name of the movie, I will say that as we drove home, Rick said, "Every time we drive over a manhole, I can't help but look for a T-Rex to come out of the darkness."
