Love Stories

One sunny morning, I was hanging out with my kids in the pool.  Then a very interesting conversation happened. I do not recall how we ended up talking about it but my son was asking about my love stories.  I then recalled the feelings of falling in love, of being in love, as well as the tears and the heartaches that go with it.

There’s a relationship that you outgrow. You think you would want to spend the rest of your life with that special someone but as you mature, you will realize that you just don’t. Maybe it is due to differences in values, priorities, and/or timing.

Sometimes you will meet someone you finally like but you will end up friend zoned. I remember this guy who would always come visit me at work, hung out with me, and called me even at night just to talk about other girls . And you realize after a while you were so stupid to listen to his crazy stories.

There are times when you meet someone and you thought you have something special. He would call you from overseas on a regular basis then one day would just disappear. You will figure out that he found someone else.

Sometimes you would think you have met your soulmate. But they don’t really stay for long.

There are unspoken feelings. Feelings you just keep to yourself. And the person would never ever know how you felt about him/her.

And there is a love meant for you.

And love never ends. It is beautiful. It is painful. It makes life meaningful.




Before I Found You

How did I end up with you? Is it just my choice or is it destiny? As I ponder about it,  I realized that circumstances, time, heart and decisions led me to your arms. I conclude then that it is destiny!


I remember how young I was when I had my first love. I thought that it is going to be forever him and me. I was in a bubble, living in a perfect world. But growing up and knowing what you want can truly change everything. It burst that bubble.


I thought he was my soul mate, I guess both of us did. Happiness was felt whenever we were near. Our hearts spoke to each other, but no words were spoken. I saw how much he cared. He made me happy. But I was confused. Then the fickle minded me…


A good friend I fell in like with or maybe even in love. I eas not sure. Mixed signals, mixed emotions or it was just me.  He who regarded me as his confidante, disappeared and got married to the love of his life.


He lived far away but we kept in touch. Phone calls, chat, emails and sending photos. I know I liked him but I see something else. We were way different in so many ways. I did not mind our difference. I still hoped for love. Then not knowing what happened we it just slipped away.

I wished for a sign from God. Will he please send me dear Lord a bouquet of red roses? That day did not happen and I was heart broken. I guess I will give up looking for that love.

A few weeks after,  my friend Lyn had a call. It was our old friend who just came to visit from abroad. She handed me the phone and we casually said our hello’s. Then he planned a surprise party for Lyn and her boyfriend.

It was dark but there were candles that led up to the  rooftop. It was a lovely surprise dinner for the couple we love. Chris handed the beautiful flowers then the engagement ring to the woman of his life.

And as to my surprise, Archie came to me. He handed me a bouquet of beautiful red roses! At that time, honestly, I did not realize that God sent me the sign that I was looking for.

I realized about the roses when we were already married. Then my life/love story began…
