Today is my 12-year wedding anniversary.
If you include our dating years, we have been irritating each other for close to 16 years.
Wowsers, TWELVE and SIXTEEN. To be honest though, it sure did not feel that long.
During all these years, we have shared many experiences – some good, some bad – but through it all, we have persevered. Of course we get on each other’s nerves sometimes but somehow, it always gets diffused with doses of laughter and well, just being goofy.
Yes, if there is one thing I have learnt after 12 years of marriage, it has got to be not taking life in general too seriously. That, and looking beyond the faults of our other half.
Because a good marriage is about looking for the small gifts that we do not always see.
She is the kind of wife who counts the good I do more than the bad.
I don't think that I could ever love anyone the way I love Sharon. No one knows me better than she does. All the secrets of my heart are hers to keep and to top everything off, we are blessed with three wonderful children.
But yet, she is my greatest blessing, the one who makes my life full of beautiful things each day.
She is the twinkle in my eye, the ice to my cream, sweet to my dreams and spring in my step.
Most important of all, she is the love of my life.
P.S. The last photo above is taken by Ale by the way. I may be biased, but it's pretty awesome isn't it? :D
