Miguel and I were able to see each other twice last week. That’s an achievement for a couple that only meets once a week hehe! He’s currently on his sem-break, so he exerts effort to make more time for me, and that I truly appreciate.
Since I’m currently unemployed, I have to adjust with my expenses, and that includes my budget for dates. I’m blessed to be with someone who’s very generous. Miguel always insists to pay for our dates, but I don’t like to depend all the expenses on him. So we usually share payments every time we go out. But there were moments where Miguel sneakily paid for our food/adventure without me knowing. Sometimes, he would take me on a date without giving me any idea where we’re going, because he simply wants to spoil me. However, even I’m currently jobless, I still don’t want him to feel that he’s responsible to pay for our dates. And being the girlfriend na ayaw masyado magpalibre, our last week’s dates have been pretty laid-back and definitely on a budget!
Last Tuesday, he surprise visit me at home. He had to wait for me for two hours since I was organising my graduation fees. Plus, I woke up late hehe. Sorry, my love! That day, he took me to Upper Hutt for a change. We had no plans at all. We just roamed around and found that there’s nothing much to do in their city. So Miguel suggested to go to a park nearby.
I love how I look happy in this photo :)
We were kids once again. We tried different obstacle course. It was a chill afternoon!
For the first time, I faced my fear of slides. A random little girl encouraged me to do it! She’s so tiny yet she’s fearless to slide down. So if she can, I can too!! Wow, there’s so much wisdom you can gain by just facing your fear of slide! Wisdom that I can also apply in different aspects of life! Thank you, random little girl! hehe Of course, we also went to my most favourite area of the park, the swing!!!
These moments deserve to be documented—hence, the selfies!
Miguel made me listen to Teddy Geiger’s For You I Will—a song, which according to him, reminds his love for me. That moment was priceless. I know I have a great God because He’s blessed me a man like Miguel. To hold him is a gift. To witness the goodness of his heart is a blessing. Oh God, I’m grateful to be loved by a man after Your own heart.
We had no plans to see each other after our park date, since we usually see other once a week. However, Miguel surprised me again last Friday! Thank God, I just had my shower when he called to say he’s on his way to pick me up. I’m glad that he didn’t have to wait for hours again hehe.
Honestly, I was praying before he called me. I was having a rough day and only wanted to disappear and be somewhere far from everything. Fortunately, my prayers reached God so quickly and He answered them in an instant.
I’ve been wanting to go to church for the last few days, and to my surprise, Miguel brought me there. It seems like he already knows what I feel and need even I don’t say anything. That happens all the time. Last Friday also marked the first day of my birthday month, and spending quiet time with him and Him was exactly how I wanted to start my month long birthday celebration. Sometimes, I wonder if God and Miguel connive to make me feel so loved. Haaaay Lord, thank You for always reminding me of who You are through him.
Since it was another surpise date, we didn’t have any specific plans. Again, Miguel suggested to go to a park—this time it’s the park closest to our hearts. This is where he asked me for courtship.
I’m blessed that he understands my situation. I know that he wants to spoil me and take me to one great adventure, but he knows that I’d just refuse.
We had subway for merienda.
And like the usual, we took selfies!
and more selfies! Happy couple is happy ♥
I couldn’t remember how many times I pinched him when he mentioned that we’re watching If I Stay! I only mentioned the film to him once, and was really surprised that he remembered how much I wanted to watch it. My eyes widened and heart was left in amazement. One of the best things about Miguel is that even I don’t want him to spend so much on me or on our dates, he would always always make a way to spoil me and make me feel special. And of course, in return, I bought the subway for us. I don’t think money would be an issue when we get married, because we know how to budget, take turns, compromise, and work as a team. Hay, Lord, thank you talaga for this guy! :)
I’m blessed to be with someone who knows to make the most of the simple moments and bring out the extraordinary in the mundane. Indeed, love doesn’t have to be grand to be sincere. It doesn’t have to be eventful to be exciting. Sometimes, in the little things we learn to value the greater things. Sometimes simplicity is more than enough; because in simple moments and with simple people we appreciate life more. That the calm and quiet moments are also opportunity for us to feel more than alive.
So to the man of endless surprises, thank you for bringing so much happiness to my life. Thank you for keeping me grounded. I swear, the world needs more people like you. (:
