“10 Years of Marriage”

Ten years of marriage, and I still adore you.

Ten years of marriage, and you're still the same, perfect.

You‘re genuinely one of an angel.

Your thought,

Your genius,

Your behaviour,

Your witty senses of humour,

Your happiness,

Your righteousness,

Your generosity,

Even if strangers ask you all money, you will give it all to them. Like, all. And you have no worries in losing them. Like, not at all.

And you wonder why I often disagree with that, hahaha. Sorry. What can I say, I am a human :-D.

Your respect for women,

Your kindness to your friends, strangers, even people who are insane (including me), they said.

Everyone knows you, consider you as their best friends. They follow you like magnet everywhere.

And you’re my best friend, too.

You never gossiped them behind their back.

It is me who often gossiped them, and you'll change my perspective, immediately with your mindblowing spoken, LOL. Well what can I say, I am only a human. I can be angry, sometimes with silly reasons, :-D. But you always know how to make me adore them, at last. Yeah, they're lovely.

Your patience that has no limit, except when you're sleeping, and someone or something shocked you, like that silly book that suddenly fell off to your head LOL.

Your faithfulness, Oh my God, you have to be in a museum for this rarety.

If my eyes still enjoy seeing some good looking actors, Tom Cruise, Arabic singers like Saad Lamjarred, Turkish singers like Tarkan, Murat Dalkilic, etc.,

Your eyes are either for your code, servers or me.

Your respect and care for your parents who left you to grandmom when you were a small kid,

Even you made a promise you wouldn't get married before making them travel as hajj to Mecca. And you fulfilled your promise.

Even you handle your brother and sisters’ educations until they finished college.

Your refusal to my request to meet up, to date have lunch, like other couples when we were still engaged,

Oh, My God.

At that point, I fell in love instantly towards you.

The way you treat a person like me like a lady,

Is there any man who left their all ATMs altogether to their wives when he went abroad, and he chooses to live with his scholarships? If it’s normal, then it’s me who’s tacky. LOL.

You're truly an angel,

You’re always the only one who’s standing by my side at times when few supports me.

And your love to NU,

For this, how can I be jealous?

Not only to China, even if you have to go to Antarctica for NU,

I will support it.

I will follow your step.

Except treating people who are unjust with kindness, oh I still fight hard to master that lesson.

You know precisely I hardly forgive and forget, LOL. I wish I have a heart like yours. I try hard. But yeah, it’s me. It’s just my nature. I am a lion. When something bothers me, I roar. I bite. LOL.

You're truly, an angel.

Ten years of marriage, and you gave me one son and one daughter who are now in heaven.

And I thankful to God every day for having a perfect husband like you.

You’re truly, an angel.

If I have to die and live for seven times, I am going to search for you everywhere, from north to west, and would only marry you, seven times.

And I don’t care what others think of me for writing this.

And I won’t apologize to anyone, this time, for showing my affection publicly, to my husband.

Well, Good, innocent men exist.
