.through the years.

Thursday Mar 21, 2013

I was listening to this song on my way to the office and instantly thinking that the song is like a description about our story, my husband and I (or maybe is a description about any relationship that is already stands the test of time :D). After 14 (not always) wonderful years together in holy matrimony, I can say without any regret that marrying my hubby is the best decision I’ve ever made .

Here’s the lyrics so you will understand what I am talking about.

I can’t remember when you weren’t there
When I didn’t care for anyone but you
I swear we’ve been through everything there is
Can’t imagine anything we’ve missed
Can’t imagine anything the two of us can’t do

Through the years, you’ve never let me down
You turned my life around, the sweetest days I’ve found
I’ve found with you … Through the years
I’ve never been afraid, I’ve loved the life we’ve made
And I’m so glad I’ve stayed, right here with you
Through the years
I can’t remember what I used to do
Who I trusted, who I listened to before
I swear you taught me everything I know
Can’t imagine needing someone so
But through the years it seems to me
I need you more and more

Through the years, through all the good and bad
I KNOW how much we had, I’ve always been so glad
To be with you … Through the years
It’s better every day, you’ve kissed my tears away
As long as it’s okay, I’ll stay with you
Through the years

Through the years, when everything went wrong
Together we were strong, I know that I belong
Right here with you … Through the years
I never had a doubt, we’d always work things out
I’ve learned what life’s about, by loving you
Through the years

Through the years, you’ve never let me down
You’ve turned my life around, the sweetest days I’ve found
I’ve found with you … Through the years
It’s better every day, you’ve kissed my tears away
As long as it’s okay, I’ll stay with you
Through the years…

You can’t say that spending 14 years with someone, even someone that you love very dearly is easy. I have my happy moments as many as my sad ones, but looking back there isn’t any single decision  I have taken that I regret. Though I might feel like a failure sometimes whenever things didn’t go as I expected, but at the end of the day, I still feel blessed and lucky and I fully accepted anything that has bestowed upon me.

So, just like the song, I would like to say this to the loveliest hubby on earth *ditimpukmassa*  I will stay with you, for as long as it’s okay, because being married to you is truly has made me the luckiest women alive… 🙂

Happy 14th anniversary dear, “I will love you always, till forever ends”


Grow in Heart, not in Tummy

Monday Mar 11, 2013

Reading this beautiful post, from a must read blog that I read everyday. Just having an urge to also post it in my Blog. Just a reminder that there’s so much more of being a mother than just carry your child inside your wombs for 9 months. I just felt the words is so beautifully written and so true in sense I want to re-post it in my blog.

Here’s the few quotes that were written in that blog…

Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother. [Oprah Winfrey]

Adoption is when a child grew in its mommy’s heart instead of her tummy. [Anonymous]

My life has been shaped by the decision two people made over 24 years ago. They decided to adopt a child. They got me, and I got a chance at the kind of life all children deserve. [Karen Fowler – Reflections on Motherhood]

The beggarly question of parentage–what is it, after all? What does it matter, when you come to think of it, whether a child is yours by blood or not? All the little ones of our time are collectively the children of us adults of the time, and entitled to our general care. That excessive regard of parents for their own children, and their dislike of other people’s, is, like class-feeling, patriotism, save-your-own-soul-ism, and other virtues, a mean exclusiveness at bottom. [Thomas Hardy – Jude the Obscure]

Was it the act of giving birth that made you a mother? Did you lose that label when you relinquished your child? If people were measured by their deeds, on the one hand, I had a woman who had chosen to give me up; on the other, I had a woman who’d sat up with me at night when I was sick as a child, who’d cried with me over boyfriends, who’d clapped fiercely at my law school graduation. Which acts made you more of a mother?

Both, I realized. Being a parent wasn’t just about bearing a child. It was about bearing witness to its life. [Jodi Picault – Handle with Care]

So? have you all agreed with me? it’s carefully chosen to describe what mothers are, she is not only someone who gave birth of you but someone who always be there for you, no matter what, even though she was not there when you see the world for the first time.
