It was 9 years ago when I gave my-then-bf his first YES from me - I agreed to be his girlfriend. Now 9 years later, I am his wife and we both have a 17-mth old son.
It would be foolish to say that we have a forever-happy-relationship throughout these 9 years. Of course there were bad times too. Times when we glared at each other. Times when we argued. Times when we..erm..I nagged at him non-stop. Times when we did not talk to each other (though usually it lasted for less than an hour! Haha).
Also times when I shouted for him to help me change Shern's soiled nappies. Times when I screamed at him for making his milk too hot. Times when I complained that he pretended to sleep when he heard Shern's cries in the middle of the night.
But. A big BUT. There are also times that we gazed into each others' eyes fondly. Times when were held hands. Times when we just shared a quiet moment to be in each others' arms. Times when we shared our thoughts and goals. Times when we know we are blessed with our cute son, good health and for everything that we have.
So although our 9 years journey is not like smooth silk, it was not bad.
It makes me more matured. It teaches me how to be a wife and a mum. It makes my life more fulfilled.
Thank you for sharing my life. I love you.
Happy 9 Years Dating Anniversary! :D
