Our 17th Wedding Anniversary!

Today marks our 17th Wedding Anniversary. Alhamdulillah.

There wasn’t anything special that we’ve done today, only the Sunday routine – sent the 3 girls for their squash practice and then to their taekwondo class.

Ayah suggested that we go out for a movie or have dinner just the both of us.... but I was a bit worried to leave the kids home alone when they will be having their finals tomorrow. I know that my requests or pleadings for them to study by themselves will fall on deaf ears especially when IBU is out of the house. Isshh....

So, although today’s a special day for the kids’ parents, it’s business as usual at home....

However, there are some things that I’d very much like to say here :

Ayah and the kids are truly the best things that ever happened to me.
Words aren’t enough to express how happy and fortunate I am to be truly blessed with six beautiful children and a terrific husband.

These past 17 years have seen Ayah and I coping with many happenings in life – Happiness, Sadness, Laughter, Crying… but no matter what happened, we emerged out stronger, firmer.... and most of all – closer.

We had a great 17 years together. Let’s hope that we’ll be blessed with more wonderful years to come :)

Happy 17th Anniversary, Ja (and Mr.Ja @ Ayah ;))

Semoga kekal bahagia, going through the ups and downs in life (insya Allah much more of the former, and much less of the latter!) di samping anak-anak.

After the kids' finish their exams - boleh merendek berdua :)

Hello Ibu, congratulations. I wish you and hubby many, many more to come with lots of laughter and good health.

Happy marriages begin when we marry the one we love. And they blossom when we love the one we marry.
Best regards and you have a great week, Lee.

Kak Ja.

Ni ayat quote, tp x ingat dr mana:
Another year for you in wedded bliss. Did you guess it would still be as good as this? Days filled with friendship and deep affection, A relationship of love close to perfection.

Semoga sentiasa berbahagia.

Dear Peesha,

Lama tak dtg sini.. I missed your quotes...

Everybody hopes for the best... but we'll never know. The most important thing is to be honest with each other and make your spouse your 'bestest' of friends....

And oh.. one more thing - do'a!

Dalam Dakapan Ibu said...

Anom dear,
TQ for your do'a.

Amiin... :)

wanshana said...

Ja,

Tak boleh tengok James Bond movie ngan hubby, nanti you ternganga tengok how HOT Daniel Craig is, your hubby jealous...Hahahaha!

Dalam Dakapan Ibu said...

Shana,
Tak pa.. kalau I ternganga tengok Daniel Craig, my hubby will ternganga tengok Olga Kurylenko. So mesti masing-masing tak perasan partner kat sebelah...hehehe!
