Cherish your chosen one
By Bo Sanchez
Getting married is the greatest mistake anyone can ever make. Being wed is the height of insanity, the most ludicrous commitment, the most totally illogical decision any human being can fall into.
Tell me. Why should I commit myself to be with one woman for the rest of my life - and thereby reject 3.2 billion other females in the world?
Along the way, I'll meet a girl who'll be more beautiful, or more intelligent, or more charming, or sexier, or holier. So why nail myself down to one choice, permanently -- and suffer the agony of simply watching beauties pass me by?
And in western countries, one out of two marriages end up in divorce. That blows my mind. That's a pathetic 50% failure rate! I would never buy a car, a stereo, a shaver, or even a nail clipper if there was a 50%chance that it would conk out on me.I simply wouldn't.
And why stay with one person "in sickness or in health, in riches or in poverty, till death do us part"? Is my mind fried? If my shirt shrinks on me because I eat too many pizzas, don't I just throw it away and buy an XL? That will be the day.) And if I outgrow my ancient computer, don't I just look for an updated version?
And then there's the catastrophe some call kids. I mean, I don't really want to wake up in the middle of the night to entertain a self-centered, bald, toothless tyrant in diapers? Do I really want little rampaging monsters to break the most expensive furniture in my house? Do I really want juvenile creatures to stay on the phone for six hours straight,
listen to noise they call music that you believe came directly from hell, and mope around uncommunicative, catatonic, and depressed because another demented juvenile creature (a.k.a.boyfriend) hasn't called in the passed thirty minutes?
Why should I go through the torture? Marriage is insanity.
But few years ago, on my 32nd birthday, I gave myself a special birthday gift: I got married to a lovely woman -- and committed myself to insane living.
Marowe is her name, the person I chose - out of 3.2 billion females.
Yes, we now have a tiny tyrant that wakes us up at night, and in the near future, we will most likely have little monsters that will destroy our house during playtime, and creatures from outer space that we will call teenagers.
Why? For three reasons. FAITH. We believe that God calls us into marriage. And if HE called us there, that means He'll be there to meet us. We will suffer all things-just let us be with our God.
HOPE. We confidently expect the best blessings -- immeasurably much more than all the hardship. God will bless us beyond our wildest dreams.
LOVE. Oh yes, there will be other females who'll be more beautiful, or more intelligent, or more this and more that. But they'll only be just that - females - like flowers in the field of a million hectares of flower fields.
But not this woman - my Marowe - the one beautiful flower I have personally chosen, personally picked from her roots, personally planted in my own clay pot, personally watered everyday, personally watched every day, and personally loved every day. Because of my love for her, there will be no one like her.
In my heart, she will eternally be the most beautiful flower of them all.
Because in the end, there will be only be faith, hope, and love.
And the greatest of these is LOVE.

im getting the hang of it!! the mantra, THIS, TOO SHALL PASS! really does work..when i told h about this mantra, he changed it to THIS ONE SHALL PASS! with the sleepless nights we had, we are actually considering just having one child!! i know i know its still early but we do get desperate at times. with baby's constant crying for no reason (or so we thought as we just cant figure out why he still cries when weve just fed him, his diapers not wet, he's sleepy..etc..) we are really having a hard time! not to mention the every 3hour feedings...haayy..
but last night, for no reason, our little one slept from 10pm - 5am..with no feedings in between..i really dont know if that s good ..i always thought if he was hungry he would wake up but tonight he did not! is that ok?
i gotta research and look at babycenter.com..

Sixth week appointment!

i thought my sex i mean six week appointment was scheduled at 10am..but when i checked again at my appointment slip, hala, it was at 1pm..h had to go on a half day this morning just to accompany me..he has that perfect attendance award in going to doc's appointments from the time i got pregnant and now that i am not and he wants to hold on to that record..i dont know until when!!
luckily, when i called my ob to explain how i thought i was scheduled to see him this morning, he tried to squeeze me in the morning schedule..good for us!!
h had been extra sweet today!!with the baby crying and breasts leaking, sorry h..but it's the last thing on my mind!!

h sent me out ALONE on a shopping spree together with my 2 girlfriends a & e as he would take care of our baby..a had her baby i while e had baby j..i had hesitations but h insisted..so off to destin i went..but my mind just cant stop thinking about my baby..times have changed..i was insisting h to come with us but naaah..he commented i deserve a break..apparently, i think i really do need a break but i know ill be missing my baby even for a short while..h even explained that at least he gets to have a break in his work and a break at home too while i on the other hand just stays at home.. i do go out at times but still baby is with me..im so used in lifting the car seat, putting him on the stroller and voila..push him wherever i go!
at the outlet, my eye caught a nice diaper bag from coach..but then, the practical in me thought how long shall i be carrying a diaper bag? at 6 weeks old, i can see how fast our baby grows as most of his clothes have shrunk! thats why it is also not practical to buy new clothes too much or new shoes for the little one! see..im out on a shopping spree and all i can think about is my baby!!!
