This got stuck in my drafts folder. It supposed to be published after Christmas but then the whole typhoon incident happened.
It’s almost christmas. And here i am lying to my wife that i’m waiting for our younger son to get out of school. Truth is I snucked out and went to the nearby city. It’s been some time since I bought her a real gift.
We do buy stuff for the house and for the family. We buy things for her. But we do it together. I still like the feeling of keeping a secret. It’s exciting!
It may sound weird but it is exciting! Since we got married we did all things together: groceries, office work, school stuff. We may not have a car but we never do it alone.
So it is really exciting sneaking out, lying on text and getting back on time just to get her the gift I personally want for her.
In the end though, when i got home, I wasn’t able to keep it going. So I told her and gave her her gift, a week early for Christmas. She was happy with the earrings.
It’s been some time since I saw her face with earrings. I always see her with those when we were not married yet. She just stopped when we were already with our kids.
It only shows that she’s been giving up a lot of things for us. It shows that she’d been loving us unconditionally, to the point that she forgets about herself.
She’s the most beatiful girl i’ve ever seen back then. And i’m a bit sad that she’s selflessly giving everything she has just for us. So i’ll be doing everything I can to take care of her.
Update: i just had a major surgery last week. And there she goes again, selfless… never showing her weakness.. never stopped loving..
I love you Arah. I love you mommy. And i am sorry for not keeping up. But i’ll do everything to give back and get you back.
