We turned 18 months yesterday! Yey! ("Time flies when you're having fun," so they say.) We were not able to celebrate it because I'm still here in Makati processing and tracking orders for Island Rose (But I'll be home soon! The season is almost over and I've been here for more than a week already.). It's my third season here and I must say that this season is definitely more challenging than the previous two. Aside from my main tasks, I also receive calls, handle complaints, and the latest experience, just this night, TUBING! (Ask a florist what that means.) And because I was so busy yesterday, I wasn't able to post this letter. But better late than never, right? And so, today, the feast of St. Valentine, I am sharing this letter to anyone who stumbles upon this blog. Not for any other reason but to share with you one of my biggest blessings and source of great joy. :) Happy Valentine's, people of love! (Because we are the people of God. And God is LOVE. ) Stay blessed and in love! ♥
To the man God has blessed me with,
Until God sends me my angel on earth to love and to cherish forever, I will be content to be alone. I will wait until the day God will say, "Here is the one for you. Live happily ever after, your name is written on his heart."
I held on to this after two failed relationships and a heart broken into little pieces. At that time I was already tired of failing, and yes, to a certain degree, tired of loving. As they say, one is enough, two is too much. I told myself that my third (if there will ever be) will be my last. I could no longer afford to have my heart broken for the third time. In fact, I already thought of entering the religious life and accept single-blessedness. I knew I was too young to lose hope in love then but I’d rather be single forever than be in a relationship with the wrong person again. Honestly, when you came into my life, I was hesitant to accept you, doubting to trust you, afraid to love you. But it wasn't you who I felt was pursuing me then. Rather, it was God. At first I didn't want to listen but He was consistent in telling me, "Here is the one for you. Live happily ever after, your name is written on his heart." The long wait is finally over. I no longer need to be alone… because I already have you. :)
I am writing this letter to say thank you for being the man that you are. Thank you for allowing God to use you to reveal to me His great plan! Thank you for being the truest and greatest manifestation of His love! Thank you for taking care of me, for thinking of my good before your own good. Thank you for accepting me as I am, for understanding my mood swings, for being there in good and in bad times, and for making me feel loved each and every day. Thank you for the little things that you do, for waiting for me to get home from work (you said you can’t sleep without knowing I am safely home), for praying for and with me, for never leaving me in the Skyway Marathon (I know you can run faster and reach the finish line way before me, but you patiently ran with me, just because you want to share the victory of conquering the Skyway with me.), for taking me to your family gatherings and fellowships because you want me to meet and love the people you love (and for them to know and love me too), for always including me in your plans, for teaching me how to live simply, and for everything else (there’s just a lot!). I wouldn't say that I cannot live without you because you were not around during the first 24 years of my life (and I was able to survive). But I would say life has never been the same since you came, and simply put, everything has gone better since we became "us". :) You made me discover my deepest passion and you allowed me to realize and appreciate my womanhood. You brought out the best in me and you continue to make me shine. “Thank you” will never be enough to show you how grateful I am to have you. You are among my greatest blessings and I just couldn't imagine spending the rest of my life with anybody else. I am excited about the future because I know, with you, it will be nothing but bright and beautiful.
We're now celebrating our "debut" and I just want you to know that the past 18 months were the best 18 months of my life so far. I say “so far” because I know the next 18 months (and years) will be even better.
We are each other’s third. We are each other’s last. :)
Happy 18th month of love and friendship! And a happier and sweeter Valentine’s, my love, my mission partner, my travel & fitness buddy, my best friend, my bear, my prince, my knight, my angel on earth, my Lawrence. :)
Looking forward to spending eternity with you,
Your Princess, your love ♥
