One Decade and Counting

Fourteen years ago, after our trip to Embassy for my school project; out of the blue you’ve asked me this question “Kung may manliligaw sayo, isang mayaman at yung isa di mayaman pero masipag, sino pipiliin mo?”. I said “yung masipag”. 

Civil Wedding
Four years after that day, I said “I do” to you. Yes, I did not marry a well-off man but I married to a man with vision, dreams and skills. It is something that I’m proud of because I know that my son has a father that he can look up to.

Our marriage is not a walk in a park but I’m grateful to God for giving you to me because I have a faithful partner in this journey. Thank you for sticking with me; for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health. 

You know that my love language is QUALITY TIME and ACTS OF SERVICE so thank you for trying to be present always in all important occasions, events and even my check-ups and therapies. Thank you for helping me in my chores and in raising our son. 

Ten years ago this is my vow,

Garden Wedding

Beyh, God knows how much I’ve waited for this day, to stand in front of you with the presence of God, saying “Here is the ONE I have created just for you”. I have no regrets in waiting because you are more than enough what I’ve dreamed of. 

As we begin our life together, I submit myself to you. I’ll give you my hand, my heart and my life as I pledge my faith and love for you. I vow to be the wife and mother that He wants me to be for you. I will take care of you and our children to be. I’ll always be here for you as your friend and as your lover, to honor, to support, to encourage, to respect, to understand and to love you. 

Today, I take you to be my husband, loving what I know and trusting what I yet have to know. Beyh, you are my joy, my strength, my love, my life and my husband. I could never ask for more. I have been truly blessed and there are no words good enough to thank God for giving you to me. Beyh, I will always love you and keep in mind that you are my first love and definitely my last. I love you. 

Today as we celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary, this is still my marriage vow. I’m not sure if I did a good job in being a wife and mother but always remember that I am ”work in progress". 

Happy one decade and praying for more decades to be with you so let us stay healthy. Thank you for loving me but I love you more Beyh!
