Our wedding day: May 27, 2007
My husband and I had been quite busy lately–he at the store, me with work, housework, and the baby.
Yesterday, I managed to get out of the house because my parents were here to take care of the baby. I attended a brief meeting with a client and then went to the store to pick up something for my husband. Unfortunately, of all the days to forget it, I forgot to bring my wallet, so I was not able to buy him anything.
So I went on to do my second gift, as I intended to prepare this all along–a digital card, which I personally made. I e-mailed the card to my husband last night so that it will be the first thing he will see when he opens his mail.
This morning, very early, before the baby woke up, I invited my husband to pray. So we prayed together for our marriage, family, ministry, etc. I told him to open his mail and then I went back to bed.
When I woke up again, my husband was busy going back and forth. He prepared breakfast for me! Or well, at least he brought our breakfast inside the room where we partook of it in a rather hushed manner or else the baby might wake up.
After breakfast, he handed me our digital camera and let me view a video. To my surprise, he actually went to our rooftop took a video of the sunrise, sang a couple of lines, and then went on to tell me his anniversary message…sigh…how romantic! Did I cry? Of course, I did!
I am just so happy that despite our lack of budget, we still managed to make this day special. Well, in everything anyway, we can still find creative ways to celebrate the happy memories in our lives, as long as we deliberately do it.
Happy Anniversary, Babe!
