I woke up this early just to find out that I am MORE in love with the man I am sleeping with for the rest of my life. And that feeling told me to get up and tell the world of our love.

One of my most treasured quotes about love is that of Blaise Pascal: “The heart has its reasons which reason knows nothing of… We know the truth not only by the reason, but by the heart.” I thought that is the most accurate and most sensible definition of what love is. When God created the world, He did it with LOVE and his reason is LOVE. We just feel it and no words can ever describe the REAL FEELING behind it. That is pure love – and it’s a mysterious thing.

I loved Rainier because I love him. How did I fell for him was still a question which I thought God only knows. I do not know how to explain it by words and when I try to, it seems that no words come out. I thought that it was stuck in the bottom of my heart and that explains everything.

Not so long ago, when I was in college and SINGLE, I used to write “everything my heart desires” everyday. I wrote essays, poems, short stories, etc., almost everyday and every night. It seems that I have a full load of ideas that is waiting to be written. I was so damn busy with my pen and paper.

Not until one day. The day I fell in love with the man that I will be sharing my life to forever. And beginning that day, I found out that I can no longer think of something to write. Because the only word that my mind and heart has, was LOVE.

When I met Rainier, I was not actually attracted to him at first. For me he was just another neighbor like our other neighbors who tried their luck to hang out with me. I was so snobbish and shy. I don’t talk with other guys except for my male cousins which I always hang out with. Every guy in our place knew it, but not this new neighbor. Rainier started fetching me at the university in which I was so shocked and overwhelmed because that was the very first time, in my entire life, that there was someone, who came out of nowhere, fetching me at school, bringing me home and started courting me.

The “Trial of the Year” only lasted for a month, and came September 30, 2007, I had my first (and fortunately my last) boyfriend.

Falling in love was never a piece of cake for me. I had so many questions in mind, plus the doubts and the fear of being hurt someday by a guy. But to my own realization, how can I be sure if I won’t try? Being in love is a wonderful state in life, and there is no way for me stop it.

Adrenaline Rush. How I love to had adrenaline rush  whenever I am with him. I was so in cloud nine and beatifically happy with him. I feel the butterflies inside my stomach, and I can’t help my self from falling in love with him. That deep feeling brought us to what we are now.

Welcoming our dear child to the World of our Christ, November 14, 2010

We are happily married for 2 years, (come January 2013 will be our 3rd), and we are a very proud parent to our dear daughter, Lindsay. In each passing days, I am grateful for what God has given me. Each passing day, I fell more and more in love with Rainier. I am filled with so much love and I want to be like this until the end of my life. I want to be inspired forever, to be happy forever. Being in love with this two great people is truly a joy of  a woman. I am so blessed to wake up, having them on my side, ever moment of my life.

I am completely COMPLETE.
