Good day all!
A few days ago I was listening to the radio when the deejay played a song I recall dancing to during my high school years. The song was Escape (The Pina Colada Song) by Rupert Holmes. Do you know it? Though I have known the words to the song for years, I had never paid as much attention to them as I did then.
For those of you who don't know the song, it starts off with a man talking about his relationship, how he's tired of his lady and their same old routine. While reading the newspaper one evening, he comes across a personal ad that piques his attention. Interested in what promises to be a fresh escape from what he's living, he writes to the paper, requesting a meeting with the mystery lady.
As he waits for her arrival at a bar the following day, who walks in but his own wife. The two share a good laugh and then the man replies, "I never knew ..."
The *chorus then follows:
That you liked Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain
And the feel of the ocean, and the taste of champagne.
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape
You're the love that I've looked for, come with me, and escape.
This song is a love lesson in awareness and appreciation.
How well do you know your partner ... today? And I don't mean what you knew about him or her 5, 10 or 15 years ago.
How well do you know yourself, for that matter? Do you have dreams and desires? Are you clear on what it is that you want in your relationship?
Do the two of you respect and care about each other enough to share these feelings with each other?
When is the last time the two of you escaped? And please no excuses as to why you can't. After all, we are talking about your relationship. If you have children, think about what you will be teaching them: love, respect and appreciation. So how about that afternoon stroll in the park, a ride out to the country, or an evening of dining and dancing with your partner. Whatever will keep that fire shining bright in your relationship, do it! It need not be extravagant.
If you haven't heard LouLou's mantra before, here it is again to remind you: Don't wait until it's too late to appreciate your mate!
Well friends, enough said this month ... gotta run, my honey and I are off to plan our next escape!
