“I’m not CLINGY! I just really, really, really LIKE you A LOOOOT!” This is what I always reply when Patrick kids me on my night time clingy-ness. I’m actually not a very clingy type of person in general, I mean we keep tabs on each other’s whereabouts throughout the day and keep each other posted casually—but we’ve never been the report-every-little-detail kind of couple. Trust has always been something we’ve valued and enjoyed in our relationship so it has never been an area to stress about. But at night, I just get really extra mushy and clingy (in a funny kind of way). I guess it’s because we spend so many hours apart (because we both have our own respective jobs and commitments) that whenever we are reunited after a long, tiring work day there’s always this natural kilig. I just like making sik-sik beside him while he answers his work emails and texts and my reward is when he puts away his phone and proceeds to hug me. Sometimes we joke “Let’s hug each other FOREVUUUURRRRR and EVUURRRR” and then after 2 minutes—-“ay, sige nangangalay na AKO–sakit na ng leeg ko..ow, ow..hahahaha!” My husband likes to tease that I’m like Theodore in Alvin and The Chipmunks—wide eyed and always eager for affection and attention! Yep, that’s ME! Ang cute ko naman kasi, dibaaaaa???? Hehehe 🙂 Although I must say, Patrick is just as cheesy with me when it’s just the two of us. But that’s just our little secret, okay!?
Today, I read a blog entry by my good friend Stella (www.misisteapot.com) and she shared how LUCKY she feels to be loved by her husband Julz and I couldn’t help but echo the same sentiment. I thank the Lord for surrounding us with happy and full marriages (not perfect ones, not glossy ones, just REAL SOLID relationships) because it inspires me to be grateful for my own marriage with Pat too! This song by Ben Folds has been a long time favorite of mine (and it came out in the About Time movie too, BEST MOVIE ABOUT LOVE&MARRIAGE EVER!!!) and now that I’ve been married for 2 years, this really summarizes my feelings for my husband 🙂 🙂 Life is simple AND Life is grand, thanks to you, Patrick.
