1, 2, 3, 4…

Today marks the 4th anniversary of https://suituapui.wordpress.com and hopefully, like fine wine…

Like fine wine

…it is getting better with age.

There have been almost 1,500 posts since the first one on this day in the year 2008 garnering an overwhelming total of over 67,000 views and more than 40,000 comments.ย My sincere appreciation goes to all my faithful followers over the years and a special thank you to those of you who have taken the trouble to post comments each day.

This song by Plain White T’s is specially for all of you:


Give me more loving than I’ve ever had
Make it all better when I’m feeling sad
Tell me I’m special even when I know I’m not
Make it feel good when it hurts so bad
Barely get mad
I’m so glad I found you
I love being around you
You make it easy

It’s as easy as 1-2-1-2-3-4
There’s only ONE thing (one)
TWO do (two)
THREE words (three)
FOUR you… (four)
(I love you) I love you
There’s only ONE way (one)
TWO say (two)
Those THREE words (three)
And that’s what I’ll do… (four)
(I love you) I love you

Give me more loving from the very start
Piece me back together when I fall apart
Tell me things you never even tell your closest friends
Make it feel good when it hurts so bad
The best that I’ve had
And I’m so glad I found you
I love being around you
You make it easy

Do click the link and give the song a listen – it’s really nice and the lyrics say it all. I sure am glad to have you all around…every day.

    As a favourite song of mine goes : โ€œOn the day that you were born, the angels got together, and decided to create a dream come true. So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of black and starlight in your eyes of brown. That is why all the girls (and boys) in town, follow you, all around. Just like me, they long to be, Close to You!โ€
