The Memory

This looks like the Just One Word … Love that we had in one of our concerts when I was still studying at the university. It was so memorable because there hubby met me. He saw me singing in solo and was attracted at first and that’s where the start of the long story of our love life. Somehow, this reminded us of the past and the experience we have had when we’re still young. Now, we’re young at heart and we could still remember… those were the days! It cannot be changed but the memory will always be in our hearts.

A Glimpse of our Love Story

When the Lord called us to be united as one there were obstacles that come along our way. There were people who would like to stop us from loving each other. There were friends who were upset because of us and there were friends who agreed. My family were upset too especially my younger sisters. But in the end we’re all rejoicing because hubby was a simple but loving person and learned to love my family.

Here’s our story:

Before hubby and I became friends, he loved to write letters. I also respond at times and that made him know me more. He enjoyed writing letters and I enjoyed responding as well. When we learned to know each other, I’ve got many letters already that my younger sisters checked from time to time but I didn’t know nor had any idea what she’s doing. They were reading it without my knowing it. They even won’t agree that hubby wasn’t courting me that time. However, I insisted that we were only close friends.

Before hubby went to visit my hometown we were becoming closer each day. Hubby invited me and asked my older sister’s permission to go out and have a date (just a friend’s date of course) no strings attached, and that’s the time when my sister insisted that hubby was courting me when they checked the letters sent by hubby. Hubby always write “take care”, “love much” that made them come to a conclusion that hubby was really courting me.

Anyway, after hubby visited my hometown and asked permission from my parents, we still have had “cold wars” because I insisted from what I had told him before, that I didn’t want my best friend to court me, maybe a kind of “pakipot thing” waaahhh hahaha!!!! Just don’t want to accept the reality… then he wrote a real “Love Letter” telling me that he loves me… nakss! was nervous already, to think of those days, just like I don’t want but I had the desire, hehehe! Then he asked me to be away for a week to make sure of his feelings and that he will not be deceived by his feelings alone. After 3 days he came back since he can’t afford not to see my beauty, haha! Telling me that he can’t live without me, waaahh! We were still friends and I was still insisting that we’re friends though I had a secret feeling, and told him just wait for the right time and the right answer, just want to make sure of my feelings.

Then one day, the most awaited time, I decided to write a letter with regards to my answer. It was the right time for me since I was graduating and preparing for many things. I gave it to him and the next day, early morning, I saw him from a distance, he was riding on his bike with “pandesal and milo” (something to eat) with a big smile and another love letter thanking me of my suppressed “I Love You” hahahahahaha! It takes time for me to say “Yes” to him but it’s worth the waiting of course…. It is still fresh in my mind what had happened many years ago. It’s worth the struggle and the waiting! When God wills, everything will be done smoothly.

Our Love Story – Con’t.

In our first chapter of our Love Story hubby and I were friends. To know that I was a type of girl before that boys could hardly attack. I mean guys could not easily court me because I was that type that had the capacity of being an old maid. What I mean is that even if I like that guy he can’t detect that I also like him. I will do my best to keep my feelings.

Hubby saw me while I was singing in a concert with my group. I was joining in a singing group inside and outside the campus. Inside since I was a Glee Club member and scholar. Outside in the sense that I joined in another group singing for the Lord anywhere the Lord calls for us to sing. I missed and enjoyed those days. During our concert, hubby saw me and was attracted to my voice and my slim body structure. According to him, I was cute and had a voice that he likes.

Time really allowed us to see each other again in the university. When he saw me, he immediately shouted “I like your voice and I like you” …. I didn’t bother as if I did not hear anything. I kept walking and proceeded to the way I was going.

Another chance to see him again, as if the Lord allowed us to each other time and time again. It is really true when it is God’s will He will find a way…

Anyway, after hubby visited my hometown and asked permission from my parents, we still have “cold wars” because I insisted from what I had told him before, that I didn’t want my best friend to court me, maybe a kind of “pakipot thing” in Filipino which means shy to show up but you had that special feeling within, hahaha! Just don’t want to accept the reality… then he wrote a real “Love Letter” telling me that he loves me… waah! If I were you, how do you feel? To think of those days, I wanted but don’t want to tell him, hehehe! Then he asked me to be away for a week to make sure of his feelings and that he will not be deceived by his feelings alone. After 3 days he came back since he can’t afford not to see my beauty, lol! Telling me that he can’t live without me, waaahh! We were still friends and still didn’t accept the real feeling, and told him just wait for the right time and the right answer, just want to make sure of my feelings.

Then one day, I decided to write a letter for my answer. It was the right time for me since I was graduating and preparing for many things. I gave it to him and the next day, early morning, I saw him from a distance, he was riding in his bike with “pandesal and milo” ( a kind of bread and drink in the Phil.) with a big smile and another love letter thanking me of my suppressed “I Love You” hahahahahaha! It takes time for me to say “Yes” to him but it’s worth the waiting of course…. It is still fresh in my mind what had happened many years ago. It’s worth the struggle and the waiting! When God wills, it happens…

The Title Speaks

One of the things that attracted me with this title “Just One Word” it is because it has a special part of me and hubby. When we were still friends and studying in the university he saw me in a concert entitled “Just One Word… Love! That was the start that he met me and followed me all the way, until we became friends, lovers and became one in marriage.

Our love story is quite long and interesting aside from learning some lessons about it. Lessons to show your love and appreciation about your feelings and other lessons to lessons to learn. However, you will remember your love life as well and the experiences you have had.

Anyway, the title speaks about it. It has a special participation in our unity and our love for each other.

Our Love Story

I can’t find any picture of our first sweet/kilig moment. Anyhow, I wanted to join, this photo was taken few years back when were in Thailand.

Our love story was quite long but interesting. Hubby saw me in our concert that was in the month of February. That concert was entitled “Just One Word…Love!” The next day, we met for the first time in the university and he was introduced by a friend. After few minutes I bid goodbye and he was shouting “I like your voice and I like you” waahhhh! I just smiled and giggled but did not mind since I find him so relaxed. Without knowing that we were classmates in one of the subjects.

After a couple of months, nearly the end of the semester, we prepared for our final exam and one of our requirements was to present a demonstration teaching inside the classroom. Hubby was there and after my presentation hubby followed until I reached my dormitory. After that, he did not stop following me until I finished my Bachelor’s degree. We became friends, we wrote letters of encouragement and we enjoyed our friendship. I remember one time, it was my birthday and he visited me and helped me cook the native chicken. Then he gave me a letter with a picture of a little boy with one shoe wearing a navy attire. In a letter he wrote, “This is Matthew, his mom ran away, would you be willing to be his mom then?” Haha! I just laughed. One time while we’re in the beach I even told him that I did not like that my best friend will court me, haha! He was afraid at first yet he decided to go and for the first time, he went to our place which is far from the city and stayed for a couple of days in order to know more about my family. Then, early morning, he would clean the surroundings and talk to my parents and made friends to my younger siblings which at first, was so jealous at him.

After few days, he was able to get the attention of my jealous sisters. They became friends and before he left he asked my father’s approval to court me. That was the unforgettable time I could never forget. More stories next time…hehe!
