There was a time when I used to observe a young man in our youth group ,just out of curiosity.
Because he was so different from everybody else . Always had a smiling face and the most simple ways .
I always looked for his face first in the group and was bored when he didn’t turn up. But we never talked . I had a good rapport with every body else in the group but not to this person.
I don’t know …
Once then, we all went for a camp . But this young man didn’t come for some unknown reasons . His friends waited for him till the end .
When we came back he was there at the railway station to welcome us .
I wanted to tell him that we missed him at the camp . But thought it wouldn’t be important .
He appeared to be very happy to see his friends . They decided to hang out for a while and I went home with my father and life moved on.
A few days later , he proposed to my parents . While we had gone for the camp he had gone to talk to his parents ( 🙄 from reliable sources )
Since then, for ten years now that man has been surprising me , every day of my life . And I loved watching him evolve into my best friend , a dynamic husband and a loving father .
My better half , My love. Happy Wedding Anniversary !

Today Pearl asked us if it is our B’day today . She is not yet familiar with anniversaries . I told her it is . Because before , we were just two different persons . “WE ” was born only on the day of marriage .
