He turns 28!
Happy 28th birthday sayang! Finally, you’re as old as me 😛 So sorry at this moment, I couldn’t throw you a kick-ass celebration. But wait… there are tones of surprises that will leave you screaming. Certainly not for the faint-hearted hehehe.
For now, I want to document my gratitude for you here <3
1. I am thankful for your existence
Every morning, without fail I will say a little thanks to the universe for still keeping you by my side. My heart feels a little calmer listening to your soft breathing (sometimes that annoying snore :P) next to me. To know that I (still) have the privilege to roll over and put my arms around you, to give you light kisses without waking you up, to bury my nose into your neck for a little scent addiction are some of the best things in life could offer. These are money-can’t-buy satisfaction that I will treasure very much. Life is short, relationships are fragile. Nothing last forever, so I’m going to hold on to you for as long as I can, love you as much as I can and treat every moment with you like it’s our last time together.
2. I am thankful that we are different yet the same in many ways
People say “Opposite attracts” and it couldn’t be truer. Our sense of music, fashion, hobbies and even weather preference (for the record, he’d rather endure winter for the entire year. Yuckkk) are totally different. And that is beautiful – to have a partner that is unique on his own, an opportunity for me to explore out of my comfort zone.
And I am thankful that our differences have taught us how to compromise, to accept each other for who we are (and not based on the image/ perception society impose)
I am thankful that I can share my passion for traveling with a partner who I hold so dearly. It’s funny to say this but… we do really complement each other, huh? (you know what I mean *wink*)
3. I am thankful that I am the person that sends you off and welcome you home
One of my current daily routine is to see Ozias off when he leaves for work. It may sound cheesy but I do stand at the door, waving at him until his car leaves my sight, every day. And when he reaches home, I’ll welcome him with a hug and kiss and whisper “Welcome home, my love”. It’s just a small gesture to show him that I am happy that he’s home. And I want to be the one who makes him happy, hopefully for the rest of his life.
4. I am grateful for you
Ever since you come into my life, you have changed the entire course of my life. All the plans I had about my life are now buried for good. I now don’t have to travel and appreciate life on my own. I have your companionship, your trust and love to anticipate and enjoy all the great things that life have to offer us together.
I am also grateful that ever since I live with you, I can proudly say that I have transformed from being a “domestic-challenged” person to a domestic goddess. Although, I am nowhere near an expert in the kitchen (I think I’ll leave that title to you :P) but at least now I know how to differentiate between dark soy sauce and light soy sauce haha.
5. Thank you for always being there for me, through my ups and downs
It is so easy to make promises and not fulfill ’em but you stood by me timelessly. In this short 7 months of living together, we had grown more mature in the relationship. Although the hard times almost tore me apart but thank you for making the first step to mend the broken pieces. Thank you for swallowing your pride and patch things up together. Despite the countless argument, bad times and *ehem* bad breath, I would not trade these for the world. Remember, when the world turns its back on you, I’ll be by your side facing it all.
I know this post doesn’t mean a lot. It doesn’t come close to all the sweet things that you have done for me since the day we are together, but I hope that my words speak through your heart and this is only the beginning. Be prepared for a rollercoaster ride with me.
Love you, sayang <3
