At times, when I get too tired of doing all the house chores, or my 'friend' is about to make 'her' visit for the month, I'll start complaining about the littlest thing that you do. Everything that you do seems to be wrong in my eyes. Your jokes used to crack me up while we were courting but now it only adds fuel to my fire. You give 1, but I crave for 2. You give 3, but I want 4!
But when I take the time to reflect, I remember your unconditional love and I get all warm inside.
I remember how pursuant you were to make sure we would spend the rest of our lives together. I remember your friends telling me that you told them you would marry no one else but me, no matter what happened. And I wonder, how many men out there would fight for their love the way you did for me?
I remember moments when you put us (Irfan and I) and our needs before your own. Remember how you would rather fulfill my heart desire, than buying your own stuff even though you want them so bad. I remember how I take things for granted and in my happy moments, always forget to thank you for all that you've done for me. But somehow never fail to overlook and complain about things that you can't do for us.
I know that you're working hard to give us a comfortable life. Sometimes I complaint that you're spending too much time at work, because I forgot that you're doing it for us. At times I would accuse you of putting your friends before your family, because I forgot that you need that little Saturday night teh tarik session to loosen up and enjoy yourself after a full week of busting your arse working.
I can be a very unappreciative wife at times, so that's why I'm writing this note. To tell you that though I don't say it all the time, I really do appreciate whatever you've been doing for us. I thank Allah for giving me the most compatible man to spend the rest of my life with, and I really couldn't ask for more. If I were given a chance to change just one thing about you, I would pass. Because you're just perfect the way you are.
The 9 years spent with you is the best years of my life. I wish for 900 more years of togetherness and even then I don't think it would be enough.
