Married or not…

Hi Readers:)
Take a few minutes to read this beautiful story  (via email)

“When I got home that night as... my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I’ve got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes.

Suddenly I didn’t know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly. She didn’t seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why?

I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shouted at me, you are not a man! That night, we didn’t talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her a satisfactory answer; she had lost my heart to Jane. I didn’t love her anymore. I just pitied her!

With a deep sense of guilt, I drafted a divorce agreement which stated that she could own our house, our car, and 30% stake of my company. She glanced at it and then tore it into pieces. The woman who had spent ten years of her life with me had become a stranger. I felt sorry for her wasted time, resources and energy but I could not take back what I had said for I loved Jane so dearly. Finally she cried loudly in front of me, which was what I had expected to see. To me her cry was actually a kind of release. The idea of divorce which had obsessed me for several weeks seemed to be firmer and clearer now.

The next day, I came back home very late and found her writing something at the table. I didn’t have supper but went straight to sleep and fell asleep very fast because I was tired after an eventful day with Jane. When I woke up, she was still there at the table writing. I just did not care so I turned over and was asleep again.

In the morning she presented her divorce conditions: she didn’t want anything from me, but needed a month’s notice before the divorce. She requested that in that one month we both struggle to live as normal a life as possible. Her reasons were simple: our son had his exams in a month’s time and she didn’t want to disrupt him with our broken marriage.

This was agreeable to me. But she had something more, she asked me to recall how I had carried her into out bridal room on our wedding day. She requested that every day for the month’s duration I carry her out of our bedroom to the front door ever morning. I thought she was going crazy. Just to make our last days together bearable I accepted her odd request.

I told Jane about my wife’s divorce conditions. . She laughed loudly and thought it was absurd. No matter what tricks she applies, she has to face the divorce, she said scornfully.

My wife and I hadn’t had any body contact since my divorce intention was explicitly expressed. So when I carried her out on the first day, we both appeared clumsy. Our son clapped behind us, daddy is holding mommy in his arms. His words brought me a sense of pain. From the bedroom to the sitting room, then to the door, I walked over ten meters with her in my arms. She closed her eyes and said softly; don’t tell our son about the divorce. I nodded, feeling somewhat upset. I put her down outside the door. She went to wait for the bus to work. I drove alone to the office.

On the second day, both of us acted much more easily. She leaned on my chest. I could smell the fragrance of her blouse. I realized that I hadn’t looked at this woman carefully for a long time. I realized she was not young any more. There were fine wrinkles on her face, her hair was graying! Our marriage had taken its toll on her. For a minute I wondered what I had done to her.

On the fourth day, when I lifted her up, I felt a sense of intimacy returning. This was the woman who had given ten years of her life to me. On the fifth and sixth day, I realized that our sense of intimacy was growing again. I didn’t tell Jane about this. It became easier to carry her as the month slipped by. Perhaps the everyday workout made me stronger.

She was choosing what to wear one morning. She tried on quite a few dresses but could not find a suitable one. Then she sighed, all my dresses have grown bigger. I suddenly realized that she had grown so thin, that was the reason why I could carry her more easily.

Suddenly it hit me… she had buried so much pain and bitterness in her heart. Subconsciously I reached out and touched her head.

Our son came in at the moment and said, Dad, it’s time to carry mom out. To him, seeing his father carrying his mother out had become an essential part of his life. My wife gestured to our son to come closer and hugged him tightly. I turned my face away because I was afraid I might change my mind at this last minute. I then held her in my arms, walking from the bedroom, through the sitting room, to the hallway. Her hand surrounded my neck softly and naturally. I held her body tightly; it was just like our wedding day.

But her much lighter weight made me sad. On the last day, when I held her in my arms I could hardly move a step. Our son had gone to school. I held her tightly and said, I hadn’t noticed that our life lacked intimacy. I drove to office…. jumped out of the car swiftly without locking the door. I was afraid any delay would make me change my mind…I walked upstairs. Jane opened the door and I said to her, Sorry, Jane, I do not want the divorce anymore.

She looked at me, astonished, and then touched my forehead. Do you have a fever? She said. I moved her hand off my head. Sorry, Jane, I said, I won’t divorce. My marriage life was boring probably because she and I didn’t value the details of our lives, not because we didn’t love each other anymore. Now I realize that since I carried her into my home on our wedding day I am supposed to hold her until death do us apart. Jane seemed to suddenly wake up. She gave me a loud slap and then slammed the door and burst into tears. I walked downstairs and drove away. At the floral shop on the way, I ordered a bouquet of flowers for my wife. The salesgirl asked me what to write on the card. I smiled and wrote, I’ll carry you out every morning until death do us apart.

That evening I arrived home, flowers in my hands, a smile on my face, I run up stairs, only to find my wife in the bed - dead. My wife had been fighting CANCER for months and I was so busy with Jane to even notice. She knew that she would die soon and she wanted to save me from the whatever negative reaction from our son, in case we push through with the divorce.— At least, in the eyes of our son—- I’m a loving husband….

The small details of your lives are what really matter in a relationship. It is not the mansion, the car, property, the money in the bank. These create an environment conducive for happiness but cannot give happiness in themselves.

So find time to be your spouse’s friend and do those little things for each other that build intimacy. Do have a real happy marriage!

If you don’t share this, nothing will happen to you.

If you do, you just might save a marriage. Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”

The Rules of Parenting by Richard Templar
Hmmm! Sounds interesting!!!! Yay, right. It's really interesting. I bought this book yesterday at Popular Bookshop at Jusco Seremban 2 after I sent my kids to tuition.
Let me introduce this book- The Rules of Parenting by Richard Templar. 
 It is about a personal code for bringing up happy, confident children. 
The Rules of Parenting are the golden principles and behaviours that will guide us smoothly through the challenges of raising children.
There are 100 rules in this book. There are principles to follow, 
which you can adapt to suit you and your children.  
 FYI: Richard Templar is one of my favourite authors too. 
I like the way he writes~very clear, concise and friendly. 
This is my third book of him actually.  I have read "The Rules of Life"and "The Rules of Love". Don't forget to grab these books too:)
Currently reading Rule 19
I picked this book because I can take away a little bit of everything from each one of them.  Kinda pick and choose what I agree with.  
~Each child is different and you ultimately have to do what works best 
for you and your children~

Sunsets...always fascinates me...
Sunsets have always captured my eyes and heart.
Sunsets gives me a nice feeling of tranquility and peace....
There is something about them that makes my soul calm and at peace.
 Following are some of the photos that i have taken last Friday evening when I went for motivational camp at DNelayan Beach Resort at Pengkalan Balak, Malacca with my students. I hope they have the same calming effect on you as they have on me.

I have to admit that I have a strong and sentimental passion for sunsets. 
 I just love to capture the beautiful and mesmerizing sunsets:)

Have a Blessing Day!!!!
Nitezzzz to all:)

Fun with Photos

I like to make fun with pictures/photos that I take with my digital camera.  There are websites that i often visit for this activity. It is some kind of online photo editor which is very easy to use and for free. Anyone can do this because it is very easy to create funny pictures/photos. You can even make silly effects on your photos if you want.

"Home Sweet Home"

There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort~Jane Austen

This is a very interesting quote that I read. And I think I should agree with that. No matter where you are going, once you are at home you feel the real comfort.
So, I am still waiting for few more days before I can hear that "I AM HOME, dear" or 
"Home Sweet Home"....My hubby's favourite saying once he comes back after his traveling for work.
p/s: Dear Hubby, come back very soon. This time even worse he travels about two months aaagggh. 
Miss U^_^.  It's exactly 19:56pm my time now and it's exactly 14:56pm (Egypt) his time now.
FYI: School Holidays are around the corner............children are looking forward to go somewhere!!!....

Happy Wednesday
Have a Nice Day!!!!!
