How Do I Love My Husband

23 January 2009

I keep on mentioning over and over how marriage changed me and my over-all perspective in life. I used to be the type of person who would seal herself in a box and view the world on one side. Until I met my husband.
Two complete strangers, with different philosophies and ideologies.
My husband was my brother's schoolmate and bandmate in DSLU. Actually, he was the only person from my bro's circle whom I haven't met during their band days. There were times when he would go to our house, but, it's either I would be sleeping or out with friends. Then there were times when my bro would invite me to join them. But for some odd reason, I couldn't join them.
On my 21st birthday, I invited my brother's friends, sent an invite to Dolf, so I could finally meet him. But during that time, he had a girlfriend and I just got dumped by some guy. When I finally met him, he was very charming and quite a gentleman. 7 months later we met again, I went on a blind date with some goofy guy. It was actually a double date with my bro and his girlfriend. We went to Malate, to watch my brother's band play. And to my surprise("eyes twinkling"), I saw him.... It was Dolf... sitting by the bar. The feeling was refreshing. I was sooo bored with my date and decided to walk over to him and have a quick chat... So, that's when it started for us. The next thing I know, he texted me and invited me out for a movie. It was a very flattering experience. Then, in 2000 we made it official to everybody.
8 and 1/2 years of being together... 4 years married...How Do I Love My husband?
 
I love him back because he brought out the real person in me
I love him back because he has brown eyes
I love him back because he accepted me for I am
I love him back because he is a very patient person
I love him back for being a God-loving and fearing person
I love him back because he knows my heart's desires even if I don't say anything to him
I love him back because he is a good, responsible, sweet, and loving Father to our child
I love him back because he is full of wisdom
I love him back for being simple and humble about himself and his achievements
I love him back for the hugs and kisses he gives me everyday
I love him back for making me enjoy the luxury of staying at home
I love him back for being "the chef of the day" when I'm sick
I love him back because he plays sweet pranks with me
I love him back for his corny jokes and baluktot tagalog words
I love him back because he knows how to listen or to hear me out
I love him back for choosing me to be his partner and to spend the rest of his life with...

wow, you sound so inlove with hubby! I like your love story, it's actually my dream love story for myself before when I was young. I always wanted to ask my Kuya about his friends, hehehe. Some courted me pero I realized, not because they're my Kuya's friends e type ko na nga.*wink
I knew then that LOVE MOVES IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS talaga...Love has its ways of letting us know who really is for us.
Anyway, you really are for each other! May your love for each other last a lifetime!!! :)

Wow..I like your love story Mommy Ench..If you are meant with each other indeed love will always find a way..

I noticed that your hubby doesn't speak Tagalog very well? where did he grow up ba?

I like your line stating "I love him back for being "the chef of the day" when I'm sick" .. I really admire guys who know how to cook bec Im not good at it. hahaha

Wishing you both the best of everything in this world.
