Love Makes Us Bigger Each day

Love Gets Us Bigger

It was summer last year when this picture was taken. I was a little voluptuous here. Noticed that hiding bulge on my tummy area? That bulge is tripled now. Would you believe that the shorts and shirt I am wearing here doesn’t fit me anymore? That means I am bigger now…my waist, hips, thighs, everything! I am currently taking slimming tea but seem like it does not make any difference. Do you think I need to read oxyelite pro reviews yet? I know I should exercise and diet instead but I am too lazy to observe daily routines.

What makes us bigger everyday by the way? It’s LOVE! I have read that a woman and a man who are in a loving relationship are putting more weight than single persons. This is somewhat true in our case because hubby and I gained so much weight since we first met. His waist line then was only 32 inches, now it’s 36. My waist line then was 26 inches, now it is 30. We both love to eat and indulging on restaurants became more fun and exciting since we were together. Not to mention the wines and spirits that make the evenings more romantic. And yes, we are both lazy to exercise because we both love to kill the time by just being couch potatoes…watching DVD movies together while cuddling.

It’s definitely our love for each other that makes us bigger each day.

Enough Love

Since this is the last week of the love month, we are asked to share what we are willing to do for our loved ones. When I asked myself, a bad incident from my past flashed my mind again. What am I willing to do in the name of love? I can sacrifice my life for the one I love. I am sure of that because I have done it once. I am not proud of what I did though and it is the stupidest thing I did in my entire life. But when you love the person very much, you can do the unexpected even if sometimes it means crossing the line. So for Rhonnel and RJ, I can take a bullet or an arrow for them literally as I am sure they would for me. But it does not need to happen just to prove how far I can go for them. They already know what I can do for them and willing to do any time, everyday.

For my dearest RJ:
?I am more than willing to be her teacher forever. I will not get tired answering her questions even if it is about love and having crush. (she is just eight but she is asking too much questions about those things)
?I will always help her with her projects even if it means sacrificing my “me” time.
?I will always prepare her favorite foods even if it means bugging me on my blogging.
?I will laugh, sing and dance with her until I get old and get hoarse voice and weak knees.
?I will always be her best friend though she keeps on reiterating that her best friends are Czarina and Jhanelle. (jealous Mom here…sob…sob)
?I will always be her mentor, confidante, shock absorber.

For Rhonnel:
?I will always be his secretary who will never get tired updating his cash book in the office.
?I am happy to let him go sometimes and have the boys’ night out with the 6G’s.
?I will always listen to his rants and sentiments in the office.
?I will massage his back, prepare his favorite meals, watch movies and learn so many things with him.
?I will always be the most understanding, open-minded, caring, loving wife.
? I will always be his number one fan.

I want to share with you a beautiful short poem from Emmet Fox.

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
no disease that enough love will not heal;
no door that enough love will not open;
no gulf that enough love will not bridge;
no wall that enough love will not throw down;
no sin that enough love will not redeem…
It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble;
how hopeless the outlook; how muddled the tangle; how great the mistake.
A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.
If only you could love enough you would be
the happiest and most powerful being in the world…
~Emmet Fox~

Labor of Love

Cheesy means lame but for us Filipinos, we use the word cheesy to describe someone overtaken by lovely emotions like the overly sweet couples, overly sweet actions, overly sweet moments, etc.

For the girls talk, we have to share the cheesiest thing we have done for love. So what is the overly sweet thing I have done for hubby? When we were still officemates, I used to give Rhonnel cards that I made. Most of you know I love arts and crafts. I am quite good in sketching and I love making cards. Maybe some will raise their eyebrows and will say “What?! Cards? What is so cheesy about that?” It may sound corny to you but for me it is the cheesiest. Usually I was on graveyard shift and making cards after my duty was not easy. When you are sleepy, tired and all your energies are gone, all you want to do is hit the hay and sleep soundly. But because I want to surprise Rhonnel who was in a morning shift, 6am-2pm, and I want to give him something before he gets home and I take my shift which was 3pm-11pm, I took some of my sleeping time to make cards for him.

These are some of the cards I made. We have them kept on a box together with our love notes.

Now, I do not have time anymore to make cards like these. There are times that I feel guilty and want to grab a pen to write even a note but I just can’t. Too may things are occupying my mind and my time…Facebook, PMB and blogging. Maybe one of these days I should surprise him again with my card…my labor of love.

His First “I Love You”

When was the first time he said “I love you”? Hmmm…let me think. Oh my! I think I missed this time. I can’t remember at all. All I remember is a common friend told me that he likes me. That was the reason why he’s walking with us everyday from Strata 2000 in Ortigas to Megamall while he can ride a bus in Robinson’s Galleria going home to Cubao. He was not telling me a word so when he called one night, I teased him that I know that he likes me. He was hesitant to admit it at first but he gave in before we ended the conversation. He courted me from then on.

After a month he said I love you then handed me a ring and asked me to marry him. “What? Are you nuts? We are dating for just a month!” I am just kidding. There was no such violent reaction. Of course I was flattered. I was not ready yet so I said no but I accepted the ring, lol! then the rest are history.

It’s the first I love you that I remember but I am pretty sure it is not the first time he said that.

Our Love Life Resolution

Believe it or not, Rhonnel and I only had one petty quarrel in our 11 years together. We do not fight it is because we always compromise and we do not blame each other for any mistakes committed. Maturity is a big factor in marriage and it is good that we were both at the right age when we got married. Boring? Of course not! We still manage to keep the candles burning; surprises, kissing, hugging, saying “I love you’s”, but still, there is room for a love resolution.

Rhonnel was always bragging me about going out, just the two of us, but no one will look after RJ so it is always remained as a plan. Last December when my Mom stayed in our house for several days, we took advantage of that. We went out and had a couple bottles of beer each at Seafood Island in Cubao. There was an acoustic playing the 80s and 90s music. We can both relate to the music and enjoyed it while we were talking and reminiscing. We had our coffee at Starbucks after. It was already 2am when we decided to stay somewhere where no one can disturb us…wink!

We enjoy going out with RJ but for the couple to be alone for a while is different. We had the chance to be nostalgic and looked back on our foolishness and escapades while hugging each other.  That was a lovely night. And so, that will be our love life resolution…to go out once in a while, just the two of us.
