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.
