In the most perfect time.
I didn’t know that having said “YES” to a marriage proposal would bring not only so much joy but also every thing that would threaten or in other ways, hurt, our relationship- may it be little or not.
Lord knows how I have patiently waited for this very moment to come into life. I was mocked by some friends to the point that I almost believed that R is never going to propose to me or anything to that effect. I pushed myself to feeling something I was not supposed to feel in the first place. They almost made me believe that marriage is not instore for me. And that I don’t deserve it. In effect, I doubted God’s perfect plans for me. I seemed to have forgotten that I am God’s princess and that I was made to be loved.
And then this day came. No one knew about the proposal but his family. Our friends and family gathered around while I walk on cloud 9. The feeling of haziness was inevitable.
YES. This three-letter word means a hundred and even thousand more. Theoretically, it means closing my doors to possibilities of meeting other potential partners. (Not that I’m looking for any, just so we’re clear.) Glory nights at clubs are over. (I don’t do this one, honest!). Splurging on make-ups is officially ending (oh, boy.) I can go on and on and on listing things that one day, I am going to give up. But one thing is for sure, I could take hundreds or even thousands of this “What You Cannot Do Once You Get Married” list, in exchange of having to be with the man whom I will spend the rest of my restless life with. As simple as that.
I would not trade R for anything. It’s somehow true that marriage can shake up our attitudes and feelings towards each other but he’s worth it, I know in my heart this is worth it. Together, we will make hundreds and thousands memories. You have no idea how fuzzled I am to work on my 100 Things To Do When We Get Married list! 😀
And oh, before I forget… THE CAKE!
