Anniversary Special: 4 Years & Counting…

As Rowel and I were quietly sitting across from each other in one of the rooms inside the temple – having the mirror of infinity as our background and while sweetly looking at each other – I felt that firm assurance that he’s indeed the man I wanted to be with through time and all eternity. Truly, entering into the covenant of marriage with my best friend was one of the best decisions I made that has brought a tremendous change and amazing blessings in my life. There’s no word that could perfectly describe how I felt when President Earl Monson pronounced that we would be together not only in this life but even till the time without end.  How wonderful it is to know that if we’ll honor the covenants which we made inside the Lord’s house, the blessing of forever will be ours – including our posterity!

Today, 27 April 2011,  marks the 4th year of our marriage and we both feel that we’re more in love now than the first day of our union! Looking back, it wasn’t really a smooth sailing journey, but those bumps along the way only made our relationship even stronger and our love even deeper. We’ve grown from immature and selfish individuals to mature and selfless beings.

During our late-night chats, we’ve never failed to ask each other this question, “If not me, who’d you marry?”  I couldn’t really imagine myself being with someone other than Rowel. Hence, I would always answer, “I might still be single to date if I had not known you!” It’s true!!!!

If not Rowel, who on earth will:

  •  love me more than I’ve ever loved myself?
  • treat my family as if his own?
  • accept me completely including my weaknesses?
  • teach me the importance of humility, patience and service?
  • put up with my tantrums?
  • give compliment not only to me but also to my friends?
  • uplift me spiritually and emotionally when I’m down?
  • laugh at my corny jokes?
  • discuss ideas and viewpoints with me?
  • feed my brain with facts and interesting information about anything in the world?
  • cook for me if I’m not in the mood to do so?
  • do my laundry?
  • treat me like a queen from day one?
  • sing for me before I go to sleep?
  • watch me while I am asleep?
  • massage my body and feet when I’m tired and stressed?
  • remind me to be kind when I tend to be mean?
  • appreciate me every time I do something praiseworthy, especially my cooking?
  • tell me “I love you!” even if I’m super mad and rude?
  • hug, kiss and tell me that “You are so beautiful, Mahal!” as soon as I open my eyes early in the morning?
  • sniff up my armpit, neck and hair (addiction?) every time we are together?
  • take care of me as if I’m a baby and treat me like I’m the only woman on earth?
  • pray and read the scriptures with me?
  • turn on the TV so that I could watch my favorite teleseryes and shows before he watches his preferred programs?
  • consider me not only as an equal partner, but as a best friend?
  •  send me sweet nothings and melt my heart like an ice cream?
  • comfort me when I’m sad?
  • encourage me to enjoy life not only with him, but with my friends and loved ones?
  • trust me in everything, whether we are physically together or not?
  • whisper to me the three sweet words “I LOVE YOU” especially when we are in public places?
  • let me feel that every day is a special day (like valentine’s day, anniversary, etc)?

 ….and the list goes on and on…

To the one, Rowel Elvin Bien, who makes my life complete, I know that “thank you” is an understatement. I want you to know that I am really grateful that Heavenly Father answered my prayer through you!!!! I love you eternally!!!! Happy anniversary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 4 years and still counting…. 😀
