I take a deep breath of contentment; it’s been a beautiful journey.
It started out one beautiful afternoon in April a few years back. There I was just defiant with almost everyone around me trying to talk me out of this relationship that was believed to be unhealthy for me. Let me give you a brief insight to this gist. A few years before this about 2 precisely, I was dating this really good friend of mine. Looking back now I really wonder what we both were thinking especially me. I had this perfect idea of how things should work out. I wanted to marry my best friend and I thought the moment I am sure of what I wanted little else mattered. Little did I know at this point that it was not quite that straight forward in real life.
Too many high school movies had clouded my view as to how things really work but you will think I should know better especially after seeing that Save the last dance beautiful as it seemed by the time they were off to college they went their separate ways with an agreement to date other people since they were in different locations.
Anyways this Darlyn here wasn't thinking in those lines. I was thinking more in the lines of Prince Charming and Cinderella living happily ever after. Although I would never have admitted to any of these inclination to ruin the tough girl image
Oops, I was supposed to be talking about the lovely 365 days and I have already dashed back 5 years. Ok I am back. I was just talking about how beautiful loving has been for the last year. I am so tickled right now. I almost cannot believe we made it this far particularly me giving my precedents. Longevity isn't exactly one of my strong points. Besides I have loved every single day of this last year. Don't get me wrong it wasn't a Cinderella or Snow White kinda thing but it was a full rose garden all the way. A rose garden with the fragrance, beauty elegance and of course the thorns (the whole nine yards). I have had it all. The laughter, the tears, the peaceful silence, the screaming quietness. The long days apart, the joy of seeing my beloved's smile. All of it. We've had days that nothing seemed to make sense; we had days where everything was just perfect. But you know what I love every single one of those days even the ones when I cried till the tears stopped coming, till the headaches set in. The days my heart seems about ready to burst for love, the ones where I floated through everything because in all of it I knew I was secured in Love.
I had the greatest guy I could imagine, more perfect than words. Then I had an even more awesome love looking out for me - FL. He brought ML into my life even when I did not know what I really wanted, He did not let me push Him away, rather wearied down my defenses and showed me that He loved me even more than I loved myself by giving me more than I ever could imagine. I have been loved by the best is all I can say. I'll tell you more about how it all started.
Happy Anniversary to Us
