One of my favorite char­ac­ters is back for the sea­son finale of Heroes tonight. As I sit here watch­ing the show, I can’t help but think of how much Hiro reminds me of my Hubby.

On the drive to work dur­ing a warm Sep­tem­ber morn­ing last year, Hubby & I heard that song “Her Dia­monds”  on the radio. I had heard the song off of Rob Thomas’ lat­est album many times last sum­mer and was look­ing for­ward to see­ing him in con­cert later in October.

How­ever there was some­thing about hear­ing that song on that morn­ing with the sun ris­ing off Lake Michi­gan that had me truly lis­ten­ing to the lyrics.

Her Dia­monds” talks about a woman  who has reached her lim­its; who has got­ten to the point where she doesn’t know what else to do but cry. And because the song is writ­ten from a man’s per­spec­tive, we get to hear how he deals with the emo­tions this woman is going through.

It’s amaz­ing how cer­tain songs can elicit the most vis­ceral reac­tions. “Hero” by Enrique Igle­sias is def­i­nitely one of those songs that will always be tied to the incred­i­bly endur­ing love I have for my Hubby. And now, after finally under­stand­ing the lyrics behind his song, Rob Thomas’ “Her Dia­monds” will, too.

That morn­ing with Hubby sit­ting in the driver’s seat, I couldn’t help but squeeze the hand that held mine just a lit­tle tighter. Because those lyrics that Rob Thomas sings … well, they’re every­thing I’ve ever imag­ined my husband’s thoughts and emo­tions were dur­ing the most dif­fi­cult parts of our Infer­til­ity journey.

And Honey? Just so you know, hav­ing you in my life hold­ing my hand and heart … that’s all I can ever ask of you when my “dia­monds” start falling down.
