Behind that scarlet dress is a woman who loved with all her heart and gave up all comforts so she can be with me in a place so unfamiliar and away from everyone she knew all her life. For love, for family, she braved the worst and stood strong in her vows 12 years ago, “For better, for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish until death do as part.”
Behind the scarlet shirt is just a man who does get hurt, gets worn out, gets scared of future’s uncertainty and feel more than others will ever know or realize. He tries hard to be everything to everyone yet it seems it’s never enough, was never enough. Sometimes, he just wants to run as fast as he could hoping to escape all the pain, the wrong choices, all the disappointing broken trust and friendship, hoping to find lasting peace and happiness at the end of the finish line.
Behind the scarlet balloon is a little boy who brought so much laughter, joy and adventure to his mom and dad. Everyday, their world is full of life filled with living colors because of him. The little boy reminded them of how it is to be young at heart, to play and have fun, to celebrate simple moments and blessings. He even taught them to dream once more and believe with all their heart that it can come true.
Life got so busy lately and making a post seems more challenging than usual. I’d been supporting my wife in her journey towards better Health. Together, we embraced a Wellness program that is transforming our health and our lives for the better. It helped us to be more positive, optimistic, hopeful, energetic, calm, more at peace, happier. Oh, and 10 pounds lighter too. We’d been doing things together as a team from food planning and preparation to elliptical cardio exercises. I will be sharing our story soon but for now, I just want all my blogger friends to know that I always have you all in my thoughts and prayers.
Before I go, take one scarlet balloon to celebrate life. Take a second one to celebrate you and a third to celebrate the people most dear to you. Whisper your best wishes. Now, let go and let them fly their highest.
Thank you for spending your time with me. Best of blessings to you and your family.
