Our 1st Wedding Anniversary 5-11-08

Immediately below is a note and a poem that I wrote to my wife back on 5/11/2008. It was our 1st Wedding Anniversary. 

My wonderful wife and I now have been married for 1 year. GiGi wiz, time is flying by. We had a fairly relaxing day and decided not to go anywhere for our anniversary because mom really couldn't be left alone for too long. However, my wife and I managed to go to church. It would have been wonderful if mom went with us to church, because it was mothers day too, besides our wedding anniversary. But she was not feeling well, and I didn't want her to leave the house.
Even though a whole year has gone by, to me it seems like we were married just yesterday. Our love for each other is stronger than ever. That magic feeling is still present in our lives. I adore her as my angel. Even though we didn't do much for our special day, I still feel blessed. I think of the times that Virginia and I were so far apart, and our desire to be with each other. Now, we are together all the time, and we are blessed by God with a truly wonderful marriage and relationship that will be with us forever.
Virginia and I are fairly simple people. Not once did Virginia complain that I didn't take her somewhere for her wedding anniversary. She didn't complain that she didn't receive flowers. She didn't complain that she didn't originally receive a gift, although after church she received a few things that she really wanted. All she wants me to do is to save money, so that maybe someday we can buy a home. Thanks to some overtime and bonuses from work and money from Uncle Sam, a good tax return and even the income from blogging, I'm thinking that Virginia and I will be moving into a home soon. We did have plans to drive around to see what was available yesterday, but again decided that it was better to stay home with mom.
To me, the time that Virginia and I spend together is truly a blessing from God. Thanks to the internet and some good timing and luck, I was able to meet a person who became my wife, as once we lived half a world apart.
Sometimes, expressing yourself to your spouse could be better than any worldly gift you can give or receive. It is for this reason that I have decided to write another poem to my wife. It is simple, short, but to the point. It doesn't take much to touch her heart.

Being Blessed
written by : James Frank 

The Lord knows how lucky I feel,
To be in a marriage that is so real.
I count my blessings every day,
And hope they last, that I pray.

My woman, my wife,
Who happens now....
to be my life.
I Live for her and that she knows,
As our love grows and grows.

Between us is Trust,
For true love, that is a must.
Because of Trust,
our marriage will last,
The formula for happiness,
that can Never be surpassed.

Happy Anniversary My Honeyko Gigi
