Nine Years of Togetherness

1st December 2005 / AISHAZ4EVER

Today we celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary. Though we are miles apart, our hearts are forever entwined with love. Any way, I will be home soon and we will celebrate together.

Honestly! I can't believe that it's been that long! I mean, I feel as if we've been married for two to three years. But our daughter is seven and our son is just two and half! It doesn't make sense!

That reminds me of an interesting conversation I had with my seven year old  the other night...(viber video call)

Maleesha: "How did you and daddy meet?"
Me: "Well...we were..."
Maleesha: "Did he think that you were the most beautiful girl in the world when he saw you?"
Me: "mmmmmmm"
My husband: (sitting afar shouted) "Of course!"
Maleesha: "So you were like the princess and daddy was the prince...right?"
Me: "Yes....and.."
Maleesha: "And now you are the queen and daddy is the king...isn't it?"
Me: "Yes...and ...."
Maleesha: "And you lived happily ever after!"
Me: "Yes!"

She had this beautiful story imprinted in her heart and I just couldn't and didn't want to spoil it. When she grows up, yes...I'll tell her our story and it's quite a romantic story too!

We may not wear a crown and a fancy gown, but our home is our little castle where I am the queen and my husband is the king. You see, you don't need millions of dollars to feel like a queen. It's all in your heart and if you are lucky...your man would make sure that you feel like a queen by treating you like one. Alhamdhulilah, I am blessed.

I think the main reason why we don't feel as if we've almost spent a decade together is (well, if we count the year and two months we dated...yes!) because no matter what life has served on our table, we've some how managed to remain happy. We didn't have that much of a fancy wedding party! We didn't have expensive furniture and a brand new room and those people who thought I was jealous because they had nicer things! Well, they were wrong. You see, it was never about money or material things the world offered that made me love him. It was his character and caring nature that attracted me to him. I married him because I loved him. And I'm glad that I did because he has been the best husband a man could ever be to any woman.

Happy 9th anniversary to my darling husband. I love you so much and I'm eagerly looking forward to spend the rest of my life with you.
