finally, got the chance to blog before my terawih prayers. it’s been awhile since i met any friends of mine besides our (super) short Sydney Trip to watch Manchester United game with a bunch of Melburnians. Insya Allah soon.
3 weeks left before we pack our bags for our well deserved break! well MINE especially. These few weeks has been planning, booking and paying for our flights and accomodations. Took us a few weeks to finally decide where we are going to stay. Now, we have to come up with itinerary for our trips which we both anticipate and love spending hours planning!
Finally sent out all our Eid postcards to family and friends! Very excited. Still received a few texts asking why we needed their addresses and how old school it is to still be sending out Eid cards. Well, some traditions are best kept! For me personally, sending out greeting cards for Eid adds to the joyous occasion.
I kept a promise to myself, that Eid next year we would fly back and spend it with my family nonetheless. I owe it to them big time especially my parents. Life is short. Got to treasure it as much as we could.
Have been officially married for 5 months. There’s so much you learnt as a wife, even 5 years in a Relationship with the same man won’t prepare you for marriage life. It is all a bitter sweet learning curve isn’t it? I have to shake perceptions off people’s mind that just because we have been in a long term relationship and eventually married, doesn’t mean that we had it good the whole time. There’s been several peaks and abundance of lows to get to where we are today.
I don’t consider our relationship as lucky but more like it has been written in our paths.
And even till now, nothing has changed.. it’s still all the same. You’ll get the highest peaks and struck with the deepest lows. Relationships can never be perfect. Ever. If it is, wouldn’t the world be a better place? There’s no broken homes, broken friendships and severe family ties. So quit thinking we had it good, because we definitely don’t. Each day i pray to be a better wife, to have the patience and strength to get through the tests he has challenged us with. Each day, i prayed he gave us the light in this dark road that we’re taking.
I wouldn’t doubt it, i still have butterflies in my stomach whenever i see him. If i could race it back home (instead of taking the bus!) i would have, every single day just to see his smile. Despite us both annoying each other to the fullest everyday. Despite us arguing about petty stuff. At times how much we hate each other and wish we have spells to make each other *poof*! God chose us to be with each other for a reason, we both might not figured it out yet. But insya Allah one day we will.
