First of all, I have to admit that this is totally an unusual post from me. You will see a 180° different me, compared to the former posts. The title? Yes, It’s about me. I’m a bride to be!
2015, I will get married to the sleeping man in the picture. He’s my boyfriend, soon to be fiancé, and my next year husband to be. ♡
Remember the song “Lucky” by Jason Mraz? “Lucky I’m in love with my bestfriend”? Ya, I never thought it will be one of my wedding songs. I used to think that it’s too impossible to be happened to me. Turns out, my boyfriend? He used to be my seven years bestfriend.
2007, seven years ago, was the first time we met. He was my client when I was working as Public Relations at a graphic lounge. He came for a surprise birthday party he made for his girlfriend (at that moment). After that, we became friends. He broke up with his “birthday girl” and we spent more time to get along together. We chated a lot via Yahoo Messenger, went for movies, and many places around town. He’s a very nice guy. I enjoyed the time we spent together. For months, until the day he said he loves me.
He said “I love you”. At that time, that words were like a spell to me. The thing that I didn’t want to hear from anyone. I believe him, I just didn’t believe in love back then. So, I left. I decided to went away from him.
January 7th 2009, it was my birthday, and the first time again I replied his (offline) message on YM after two years I “disappeared”. That two years, he kept texting me via YM sometimes, even though I never reply. I left him questioning why. I deleted his every numbers, social media and messenger accounts. I left him blinded. But he never forget to send me his best prayer on my every birthday, no matter what. He never stop trying.
That year, we met again. He took the chance for us to get close (again), even though only as friends. Years gone by, we became bestfriends, then brother and sister. We had our own relationships with another person, but we never stop seeing each other, as a family.
Seven years, he never leave me. He is always there for me, anytime, everytime I need him, as everything I want him to be. He knows everything about me. My bads, my wounds, my weaknesses, but it never change the way he looks at me. He never stop loving me, caring me, wholeheartedly. And after seven years, finally I love him back. Something I never thought could be happened, just happened to me. Like a miracle. God put that love to me, for him. For his gentle heart. July 4th 2014, I’m falling in love with him. Finally.
I love him. It’s getting deeper and deeper everyday. Alhamdulillah.. He loves me, he’s the best at taking care of me, he makes me smile, he makes me laugh, he tries everything to make me happy, he has a warm hug, a very comfortable shoulder to lean on, he’s a hardworker, he has everything I need from a man to live together forever. What else I need?
I never had in mind that I will get married this soon. Even the day before I love him, I still thought that I will get married at least in two or three years ahead. Not this soon. But, Lord has a plan. He surprised me! No one could change my faith, my heart, my will, but Allah. Everything changed in a beat! Boom! “You love him! And you are ready to be a wife! His wife!” Like that? I guess so! Hahaha
Thank you Lord. Thank you Dimas, my beloved husband to be. Thank you for the seven years of trying, struggling, loving and caring. I love you, and I’m so ready to be your wife. May Allah be with us forever. Aamiin..
Yes, I’m the lucky seven and I am a bride to be! :)
