R and me in Taiwan on Valentines' Day

R and me in Taiwan on Valentines’ Day

4 months  and 16 days ~ That’s the  number of days to our 14th Wedding Anniversary.  R is 7 years my senior  and I have known him since I was an 18 yr old in University.

You can say that I have known him half my life and  it seems like we have been together forever.

I knew from the start that  I wanted you to be mine. Even though it seemed  rather strange  to others at that time coming from one who was barely eighteen.

You can say that we were  meant for each other and never had once I doubted that decision of mine and have been sticking by it ever since.

Even though you may or may not realize I’m still madly in love with you. I feel like a blushing teenager.

The thought of being able to spend time with you now that you are working overseas really  thrills me. To be in the same space and making joined memories which we will be able to relate to our kids and grandkids are experiences which I really cherish.

The way you hold my hand in yours, the warmth of your embrace gives me the peace and security that I seek.

It’s in the way that you hug and  kiss me goodnight that makes me have a peaceful night.

I love the way that you make the kids and my eyes light up each time you walk in through the main door.

The laughter you create when you play with our kids, the fun and joy. The exuberance that you have and dedication to the family makes me blush with pride.

Even though it really hurts when we have to part again after being together for a week or so I do appreciate the time that we get to spend together.

Love you always.

Having you around  our  home is complete.

Writer’s Workshop: My Love, Hello

Love Quote

Love Quote



That’s how far you are away from me.

It’s not that near nor that far.

5hrs by Aeroplane is what it takes for me to travel  over to be with you.   8 hrs if you include travelling and waiting time at the airport.

Living apart on different islands.

Two of us in different cities due to our work and family commitments.

Working hard to be together  and pushing through the daily grinds of life.

Doing our best and giving our all.

Appreciating each other for who we are.

Individuals  joined together through the sacrament of marriage.

Different but yet the having the same ideals and dreams.

Bonded in LOVE.

Striving  towards our common goal a step at a time.

Trudging on even though we may be physically or mentally exhausted.

Both of us on this  life long journey  since we entered the institution of marriage 14 years ago.

A journey that has seen ups and downs.

Tears of joy and sadness.

Births and Deaths.

Euphoria and heartbreaks.

It isn’t easy   for me every time we have to part.

Dealing with the longing and  physical separation only makes my heart ache even more.

Counting down till we next meet
