五年了, 却不像五年

I remember when I was a child, commercials back then were flatly cliche and barely sensational. Nuances were redundant and it was needless to guess what the commercial was trying to market across.

One of them however, was different.

A couple held hands of their child, was strolling by the beach in a gorgeous sunset. It was a scene of happiness, closed with a line ' 五年了, 却不像五年' . If you don't read Chinese, it means, ' it doesn't feel like 5 years have passed '.

Little I understood what a diamond ring has to do with 5 years of marriage bliss, but the picture of happiness etched on my mind for a very long time.

Come 1st May, Bear and I will be married for 5 years. =)

We're thankful to God for blessing of much good times, and helping us weather the not so good ones too. By His amazing grace, 5 wonderful years have passed.


There will be a simple celebration. We're not spending it by the beach, and we have yet held hands of our little one.


We may have little, but we have so much.



五年了, 却不像五年. =)

And we're praying for many many more beautiful years to come. Amen.

P/S : Japan is having Golden Week holiday starting tomorrow! Yippee!
