A Love Story, A Beautiful Life
A Love Story....
I only have three most loved and cherished love story in my life, my love story with God, my love story with my very loving and wonderful husband and the one that I am about to share.
This love story is a typical woman meets a man in a working place, where everything was new. He saw her first on a cold windy day, the sun was merely peeping through the cumulo- nimbus clouds and it looks like it was about to rain. Yet her long, shiny black hair brought him enough sunshine, cascading as she walks. His heart was so delighted, and was so mesmerized by her beauty and grace. He wonders if she even noticed him looking by.
He felt so happy to know that she was a newly employed company nurse at his own working place, so delighted to see her every day. Until he realized that he was falling in love to a woman that he does not even know.
At last he knew her name. Every day, he would go at the clinic to let her check her blood pressure- although he was at the peak of his excellent health. He wished he would catch some colds and fever, yet he is healthier than a carabao. This makes me laugh each time I remember, with delight and a bitter- sweet feeling.
With heaven’s grace, and maybe a pity for a man who is longing for one he truly loves, she noticed him. They became friends and eventually became one of the most romantic lovers that they could ever be.
They tied the knot on a stormy day in May of 1976. They never cared about the rain, deep in their hearts and warm smiles are sunshine and rainbows of love knowing that they can make it through anything. With their young strong hands holding on to each other they started their journey together in this life where everything changes, where nothing is secure.
Just like anyone else, their married life was not always a smooth road- there were bumpy days, there were pits… and there were even monsters and snakes lurking around. There were times when they felt that they could not make it, yet they kept their love for each other. They never failed giving each other the strength and comfort that they both need, despite the need to be apart due to the increasing demands of their growing family. They managed to take care and give the best that they could ever be, not only to each other but to their three children who will always look up to them and wish to be the kind of parents that they have been.
Gone is her long black shiny hair… now tinged with gray and white. His cute curly hair has streaks of hints of old age. Their faces now show how much the years have passed. Their young strong hands have grown weak, now showing signs of some varicose veins and rough spots… yet their grasp for each other are still as sturdy as the first time they clasped. The love that they have for each other still show so much in their eyes… and each time I look at them looking at each other, I could feel the world stopping its orbit, and there, I could see their love and devotion deep in their very soul.
For my MOM and DAD... We LOVE YOU SO MUCH!

...A Beautiful Life...
Their love story has taught me so many things that they did not even have to work hard to teach. One of them is the art of realizing the beauty of taking our journey and facing life everyday with much enthusiasm and the freedom to believe and work for a better tomorrow. That happiness is not the pot of gold we expect to see at the end of our rainbows. True joy is really what we see and find as we take our own unique travel with life. It is the hues and colors we paint in our life. They are the blessings that are showered upon us on a sunny and even on stormy weather.
I admit that I failed to ever really describe how beautiful this love story is, I could never really write what they’ve been through. What one may read from this hub may just be the typical love story one may read from a short comic strip or a very plain, short story. But what I could say with all truths and immeasurable admiration is that they are able to truly love unconditionally despite life’s trials and uncertainties. They managed to be so romantic despite age and distance. And I know all the behind the scenes of their story… I just know that so many miracles have rained on them.
As I watch far by, I feel my heart beat so fast with the serenity to know that true love really last even after all the sparks, or even after eternity begins. I watch them walk hand in hand with aged hands, wrinkled face and grayed hair, yet the hues of their enduring love and devotion for each other burns so brightly as ever from their very soul.
One may wonder why I know so much about these couple. I just know, because I am their first angel who got the curls of his hair, the curve of her nose ( … and I wish the curves of her figure too, lol!) and the privilege to spend a life in the security and comfort of a home in their loving embrace. They are the kind of couple any couple would love to be like, and the parents that any child would long to have.
As the world celebrates the love month, I like to celebrate EVERYDAY for the love that this couple has given to each other and to their children. To my MOM and DAD, thank you so much for holding on to each other despite life’s trials and uncertainties. We know that we are loved so much because we have parents like you who may not have given us a mansion for a house, yet has given us a home that anyone would wish to own. We have tho MOST ESSENTIAL things in this LIFE that money can not buy. WE have a BEAUTIFUL LIFE.
