Today is when we celebrate our wedding held in Japan 7 years ago.
I wrote about the same day last year, and named the post 'The Anniversary'.
What I didn't tell in the post back then, I was 5 days late by the anniversary day.
I didn't want to think too much about it for afterall it was the first time we tried. To be sure, I got my kit that morning and that's how all that cramping, headache and bloating explained.
I remember my feelings back then with so much detail that my eyes are warm with the same happy tears right now. :)
And so I had a surprise ready for Bear at our anniversary dinner! I was impatient throughout the slow meal as I couldn't wait for dessert, that's when I would pass him the kit ~ Happy Anniversary honey, I have a present for you. ;)
’本当に？’ he said. Yes honey, I know it all seems very orchestrated but yes, you are becoming a daddy soon!
But I remember telling him too that we may be rejoicing too soon as my age is a factor, and my health hasn't been too good since I've started living in Japan.
This year, there are 3 of us at the dining table. Bear and I had our favorite pizza, the little one watched on curiously and was foaming like a crab. It's ok we didn't make it to any place fascinating. Happiness has never been nearer next to the one you love. :)
Thank you God, for every single blessing.
