I have always loved the song "Make You Feel My Love". Written by Bob Dylan (whose version is pretty great) and made even more amazing by Adele, this song has always been a lover's song to me. A proclamation of all of the things one person will do for another so they know how much they are loved. It is a wonderful song with such touching sentiment. 

I now see this song in a completely different light. 

I would do anything to make sure Alden knows how much and how unconditionally he is loved. 

This is my promise to both of my boys:

Nicholas & Alden, 

I will do everything I can, every day, to make sure you know how much you are adored. I cannot imagine my life without you and am so lucky to have been given two such beautiful souls to spend my life with. You make me happy to wake up in the morning and grateful every night before I go to bed. 

Love, Laura (Mom) 

                                                       "Make You Feel My Love"

When the rain is blowin' in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love.

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love.

I know you haven't made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I've known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong.

I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawlin' down the avenue
No, there's nothin' that I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love.

The storms are raging on the rollin' sea
And on the highway of regrets
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
You ain't seen nothin' like me yet.

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true
There's nothing that I would not do
Go to the ends of the Earth for you
                                               To make you feel my love.
