The Woman Behind The Silhouette

Who’s The Woman Behind The Silhouette?

Many years ago, I saw the most beautiful person walking by my school campus. It was the beginning of the school year. So many new faces but this one sparkled like a precious gem among the crowd. She was an irresistible mystery that this young detective needs to solve. Sometimes I’ll catched her silhouette by the school hallway on her way to her class. Every time, exciting, electrical currents ran in my veins sending my heart into a crazy cyclone spin.

Being beautiful is not about having expensive things but having a rich, beautiful heart. One of the things I learned from the woman behind the silhouette. In total contrast to this “Dior” silhouette. Style and fashion is something that is within you. How you carry yourself and not by how much your clothing cost. Another lesson learned from the woman behind the silhouette.

Tomorrow, that beautiful woman behind the silhouette will spend her 36th Birthday with me. Tomorrow, I will thank my lucky stars for bringing her into my life. Tomorrow, I’m given another year to get to know more the woman destiny blessed me.

The silhouette behind each dream I make, each journey traveled, each inspiration fulfilled and each brokeness healed with a caring hand guided by a loving heart.

Everyday, I discover something new and amazing about the woman behind the silhouette including the imperfections that made me love her more. Imperfections that becomes perfect when two imperfect souls find each other.

Thank you for sharing your day with me. I hope you enjoyed my entry for this week’s Travel Theme called Silhouettes by Ailsa. Today, get to know the silhouette of the person who loves and inspires you everyday.

    • Thank you. It’s a special B-day for her since her parents and brother were also here to celebrate the day. Since we left the Philippines in 2003. Family celebrations is a rare, priceless treasure. Most of time it’s just the 3 of us.

    What a lucky lady to have a man so in love with her. It is wonderful to feel love in this way, isn’t it. Mine makes my toes curl sometimes, silly, I know.
    We are not just lucky, but blessed, and I feel for others that arn’t.
    Great writing.

    You made my Monday… I too had and will always remember my silhouette. She passed 7yrs ago this Oct. We knew, grew and loved each other since we met at 16yrs of age, were married for 23 yrs with 2 beautiful daughters who also remind me of her at the young age we met. Congrats to you for finding and believing in each other, for it truly does work in these very trying times… not easy, but anything worth keeping and cherishing never is. Give her a hug an tell her… that is for someone who is not here but will always be in our hearts.
    This photo essay was about our special place….
