May the 4th Be With Us

Today, I woke up to Jan hugging me as he whispered, "May the 4th be with us."

I gave out a smile. "What a silly way to greet Happy Anniversary," I thought. But a warm feeling washed over me and suddenly it didn’t feel silly anymore. I hugged back, kissed him on the lips, and closed my eyes.

I would have gone back to a much needed sleep but I didn't. I savored the moment being wrapped inside his arms. It doesn't get any better than this.

Six years together and I still think about how I must be favored by the gods for giving me someone so thoughtful and caring. I think about all the things he does for me, how he can drop the world for me, and how he always makes me feel loved.

Today marks our first year of marriage and I have fallen more in love with him. Not only because he is getting more handsome as he age, but he continues to pursue me and he has taken me to a level of love and dedication I never knew existed.

We would have been somewhere in a paradise celebrating our anniversary today, but for obvious reasons, we'll just be doing the usual daily routine. But having been cooped up with him 24 hours a day for exactly 51 days made me realize I can be quarantined with him forever (although I wish this pandemic will soon be over so we can go and see the world again). I may not have the perfect husband but I could not ask for a better man to spend the rest of my life with.

May the 4th be with us!
