As most people close to us know, hindi kami nag cecelebrate ng monthsary,
we never did.
Instead, Mara thought of celebrating every 100 days.
In her words, mas matipid at mas special kasi konti lang per year.
Couldn't argue with that.
What we failed to anticipate was that mahirap mag bilang ng 100 days palagi.
Which led to many failed greetings and preparations.
Our first 100 as Mr. and Mrs. is no different, she counted March 11, I counted March 8. This time ako ang tama, I get the bragging rights for the next 100 days.
Whoever get's the date right isn't really important, tingin ko hanggang tumanda na kami, lagi nalang kami mag tatalo kung sino ang nag bilang ng 100 ng tama.
Pero ninang, kahit mali bilang mo for our first 100, hayaan mong sabihin ko sayo ito, Maraming Maraming Salamat, thank you very much for loving me... I owe you my Happiness for the rest of my life.
Alam kong hindi simple mahalin ang isang katulad ko, but all the attention our SDE has been getting has made me realize even more, hindi madaling maging Mara sa buhay ni elo. People will always judge, will always second guess. But the way you reacted, even with the comments that are way below the belt, has further affirmed what I knew all this time, ang bongga talaga mag gift ni God.
You told me that our video reaching our to who knows how many is HIS way of making life easier for me, that people would get to know the real me through all the messages and comments, instead of making fun of me because of my disability. (even with the negative comments hurled at you, ako pa din naisip mo)
Pero Ninang, let me tell you this, its HIS way of letting the world know who Mara Angelique Cruz is, a woman who loves an utterly imperfect Guy, in the best way she knows how.
Ninang, hindi kailangan ng daang libong tao para ipaalam sa akin kung gano ko ka swerte na ako ang pinili mo makasama habang buhay. I know that with every fiber of my being. I couldn't be any more thankful, I couldn't be happier.
Thank you for being Proud of Me, Thank you for your love, Thank you for making me your Mr. Cruz.
To a Hundred Thousand Hundred more =)
Mahal na Mahal Kita
