It's that time of the year again - the day Ayah and I celebrate our wedding anniversary. It's our 21st today. Syukur alhamdulillah...
We have come a long, long way since our cerita chenta which started more than 31 years ago. And we are 31 years older and wiser now, in sya Allah.
We first knew each other on 26th April, 1984 - at the tender age of 16, way back when we were in high school.
And 10 years 5 months and 14 days after knowing each other, on 9th September, 1994, I became his lawfully wedded wife.
So, all in all, we have known each other for 31 years 5 months and 14 days today. That's more than half of our lives - 21 years of which as a married couple.
He has always been there for me, as far as I could remember. And I hope, as far as he could remember, I had always been there for him, too.
He can be a very difficult person to live with sometimes. And I know, I am, too.
He can be a jerk sometimes (Hahaha!). But, I know I can be a bigger jerk than him. So, I just let him be a jerk when he wants to :)
He is one of the most responsible person I have ever known. But, I can't say the same about myself. And I'm sorry for that...
He is a wonderful and great provider for me and the kids in all aspects - love, support, and all kinds of stuff - worldly and spiritual. And I hope, I reciprocate that.
It has been a wonderful journey for us with all our ups and downs, our colourful and grey moments, the storm we had to go through, the rainbow that always came out after.
Even with all the downs, all the greys and all the storms manyfold over, I would not trade the last 21 years (and the last 31 years, too, for that matter!) for anything else.
Happy 21st Anniversary, Haizal bin Haron Kamar.
I hope you know that I love you so very much...
And I make do'a semoga Allah panjangkan umur kita, murahkan rezqi kita dengan rezqi yang halal dan baik, ampunkan dosa-dosa kita, dan panjangkan jodoh kita dan semoga kita kekal bahagia hingga ke Jannah. Aamiin.
