Why like this...why like that??

This post is dedicated to my beloved wife...Rachel.
*
We have been a couple since 27 March 2003 and been married since 28 June 2008. We have gone through ups and downs, quarrels, arguments, laughed together, shared our tears with each other, hugged and kissed each time we meet...even to this very day. I still remember the day you asked me "Do you have a girlfried??"...and I said "Why?? You want to "khaw" me ar?" ....then we both felt the rush of electricity in our veins, and butterfly in our stomachs...and i still do each and every time I see you every morning. I pray that this will not end till the day we go back to our Father. The vow I made publicly in the presence of God still rings in my head....
*
"From this day on, I choose you, my beloved Rachel, to be my wedded wife. To live with you and laugh with you; to stand by your side, and sleep in your arms; to be joy to your heart, and food for your soul; to bring out the best in you always, and, for you, to be the most that I can. I promise to laugh with you in good times, to struggle with you in bad; to solace you when you are downhearted; to wipe your tears with my hands; to comfort you with my body; to mirror you with my soul; to share with you all my riches and honors; to play with you as much as I can until we grow old; and, still loving each other sweetly and gladly, our lives shall come to an end."

Of late, Rachel has been very moody. 1stly...it was because of her "tai-yee-mah", understandable....2ndly, her boss and 3rdly, her colleagues.
*
1st issue....I cannot do much about it but to sit by your side comforting you. I offer my warmth and kisses so that you can sleep at night.
2nd issue...your boss has got no brains (I hope she does not stumble unto my blog :P). What does she expect to get by opening a counter at your office's doorstep? Right in the middle of the afternoon....else, just pray that God would give her some sense in sales :) and be a good and accomodating leader.
3rd issue....don't mind your colleagues. I've learnt from Eugene that instead of condemning and cursing one, we should bless and pray for them. God knows the best remedy and solution. It may take a while to digest, and we have to be faithful and wait for His calling. (this part has been edited :))
*
All I am saying is this, whenever you need a shoulder to cry on, I'll always be by your side. For whatever reason or path you plan to take in the future, I'll be there to support you. If you need someone to listen, I'll have my ears opened for you, and I'll ensure I'll live to the vows that I took till the end of our days. I do not have all the answers in life, I cannot answer all your whys and cries? But I promise you that I will take your hand in mine when we go thru the ups and downs in life...with God's grace and direction.

Love you princess......XOXOXOXOXO

I cannot dispense advice on No 1 because a lady knows best as far as "tai yee ma" is concerned. You must be happy to note that Rachel has it only a few days a month, some ladies have it everyday a month, everyday gila.......

As for no 2 & 3. bless those who traverse against you, that's one beautiful advice i learnt from Jesus Christ, trying doing it, you will be amazed how great the result or results will be.

I hope Rachel will be well comforted knowing that she has one brood like you,,,,cool.

what a coincident,i blogged about my wife today too

Calvin Soo KJ said...

ailing, she has been all this while. but sometimes she just cant take it on her own and breakdown to tears when she sees me. rachel is very sensitive when it comes to these, so all i can do is listen, listen and listen :)

Ooi...why everybody mushy-mushy? Mating season kah?...Maybe Rachel's under pressure (from ur folks? Old people always blame it on the woman) to have a baby? Can be mighty depressing, and depression can lead to severe mood swings... Take it easy!!! "Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven!"
