wow, 25 years together. believe it or not though, the first thing that entered my mind was…. oh no! that means i’m turning 25 in a few years!!! *panic mode*. hahaha. but i’ll save that topic for another day.

it must be amazing to spend 25 years (or even more since this is just their wedding anniversary) with just one person. i’m a hopeless romantic and yet sometimes i find it hard to believe that it could be possible to stay in love with the same person for the rest of your life.

numerous songs have been sung, books and letters written, movies made on love. but those who would really be able to understand them are people like my parents, those who have already found love, who have worked through kinks in their relationships and themselves and have successfully lived their life with someone else by their side… their better half.

i’ve always been open with my parents about my lovelife or lack thereof. and my mom’s advice has always been… don’t worry, you’ll know when you meet the one. then she goes on to describe how she knew daddy was the one for her. my dad’s advice on the topic, on the other hand, consisted of me and him praying for my future husband because that’s what he did, he prayed for mommy. and each time i would complain about my age and my lack of a lovelife still, he’d say… don’t worry, we prayed for him already. he will come in God’s time. and weird as it seems, i believe that. i remember a conversation i had with gerry where he was asking me on how i expected to meet the right guy for me when i didn’t date, and all i could answer was… God will provide.

no matter how i try to run and hide from my Christian heritage, i just can’t. this is who i am and how i was brought up. and though i’ve strayed in some of the Christian values, the way i view how my lovelife is supposed to be still remains the same. somewhere out there is the guy that God has chosen for me and i must keep myself as pure as i can till the day God chooses to reveal him to me. in a world of one-night stands galore, i know this is a weird view. i don’t judge these people, for me, it’s their choice. all i ask is that i be extended the same courtesy.

so to my parents… a happy silver wedding anniversary! you are the best parents a girl could have and i love you immensely!

and to my future husband, the one that God has already chosen for me… ang tagal mo naman! nangangawit na ako dito sa kakahintay! hehehe. =p
