One of my favorite charÂacÂters is back for the seaÂson finale of Heroes tonight. As IÂ sit here watchÂing the show, IÂ canâ€™t help but think of how much Hiro reminds me of myÂ Hubby.
On the drive to work durÂing aÂ warm SepÂtemÂber mornÂing last year, Hubby & IÂ heard that song â€śHer DiaÂmondsâ€ťÂ on the radio. IÂ had heard the song off of Rob Thomasâ€™ latÂest album many times last sumÂmer and was lookÂing forÂward to seeÂing him in conÂcert later in October.
HowÂever there was someÂthing about hearÂing that song on that mornÂing with the sun risÂing off Lake MichiÂgan that had me truly lisÂtenÂing to the lyrics.
â€śHer DiaÂmondsâ€ť talks about aÂ womanÂ who has reached her limÂits; who has gotÂten to the point where she doesnâ€™t know what else to do but cry. And because the song is writÂten from aÂ manâ€™s perÂspecÂtive, we get to hear how he deals with the emoÂtions this woman is going through.
Itâ€™s amazÂing how cerÂtain songs can elicit the most visÂceral reacÂtions. â€śHeroâ€ť by Enrique IgleÂsias is defÂiÂnitely one of those songs that will always be tied to the incredÂiÂbly endurÂing love IÂ have for my Hubby. And now, after finally underÂstandÂing the lyrics behind his song, Rob Thomasâ€™ â€śHer DiaÂmondsâ€ť will,Â too.
That mornÂing with Hubby sitÂting in the driverâ€™s seat, IÂ couldnâ€™t help but squeeze the hand that held mine just aÂ litÂtle tighter. Because those lyrics that Rob Thomas sings â€¦ well, theyâ€™re everyÂthing Iâ€™ve ever imagÂined my husbandâ€™s thoughts and emoÂtions were durÂing the most difÂfiÂcult parts of our InferÂtilÂity journey.
And Honey? Just so you know, havÂing you in my life holdÂing my hand and heart â€¦ thatâ€™s all IÂ can ever ask of you when my â€śdiaÂmondsâ€ť start falling down.
