Do you ever have that situation wherein your life seems to fall into place without you doing anything or you just did something so little? My husband and I met that way. I was a medical clerk and he was an emergency room nurse. It started as a teasing which later turned into our first date, into constant communication, into our first kiss and into making it official. I’ve never met someone so opposite yet so compatible with me. So opposite and so alike, that is what we are. There was not a room for pretense except for all my hormonal-induced drama which I guess made our relationship became a bit stronger. We amazingly made it despite the fact that we all have big personalities on our own.
I am genuinely in awe to the kind of love that we have. We make so many mistakes and had so many fights that we have grown and learned what we meant for each other. I appreciate him so much that in my moodiness, he manages to make me laugh especially during my not-so-cute fumes. I think I can grow old laughing with him.
And because we had so many happy yet bumpy rides, we naturally wanted to get married. We don’t really have a romantic proposal nor any dramatics on the background. We just agreed to.
Our wedding was really simple and solemn with my 20-weeks baby bump slightly showing. We want nothing so grand, we just want our loved ones to be happy with us on a very a wonderful little church and a very comfortable venue. We shared our love in our own unique way. We never said our vows since our church has rules on personal vows but let my vows go mainstream. “To my dear husband, I don’t know how God and the universe brought us together. Both so opposite and both alike. Magical can’t even begin to describe how we started. I won’t use anymore flowery words except thank you. I can’t thank you enough for making me happy through the years. And I have a never ending gratitude to God because he gave me someone I really needed, really wanted, who I am able to forgive over and over again, who I am able to take care and able to grow old with. No fancy words just you and me and our little angel to have and to hold with God as our center…”
