I’m so soooo proud just as how much my guy changed this year.
He has been nothing lately but a home-school-home guy and he does take care of things so well; all I can ever do is praise him and he keeps continuing the job.
He takes care of his health in good shape; he doesn’t get headaches too often and it makes me smile how earnest he is every time he plays in the court. I love how he takes his heart to every game and how he devotes himself to winning. I’m so proud he is never heart-broken when his team loses and remains just the same when they win. And my best-est reward is when he calls me right after the game telling me all the littlest, most exciting details.
My guy knows exactly how proud I am of him.
That no matter how many trophies they get, WIN OR LOSE, HE WILL ALWAYS BE MY GREATEST CHAMPION.
He’s been playing basketball since High School and his Coaches entrust him too much; he does stand 5’9” and he knows exactly what “team work” means. The last time I watched their game, their Coach kept smiling at me every time my guy made shots. Then he said, “You should be here often.” HAHA!
Kidding aside, he’s into Basketball again these days better than he ever was. When he told me he will fix everything, HE ABSOLUTELY DID.
At school, he is one man dedicating long hours to class and trust me, he stays there from 7 in the morning til 7 at night, yet he still has the time to call me when he gets home. We talk for an hour on the phone and though his voice really sounds tired, it gives me just the long “aaaaaaaws” how he is still able to take care of his girl. I understand he needs to be gone for 12 hours and it’s when I miss him that he shows me just the best-est sweetest ways to cope up. THAT IS THE BEST THING HE DOES EVERY WEDNESDAY.
Then we sleep right after the call, of course my guy needs to rest the night. We usually sleep at 1AM but every Wednesday, we sleep at 10. And the last words he tells me:
“Good night Princess, see you tomorrow. I love you so much.” And then I’ll sleep. :)
In our relationship, I ADMIRE HOW HE TAKES CARE OF ME.
His hours are fine-tuned and he is able to handle the day so well; stress-free and in high spirits. He wakes up early in the morning and sends me just the sweetest morning texts; and when I finally meet daylight, he calls.
Hearing his voice at 8AM is just the most perfect than perfect itself.
He never fails reminding me I should enjoy my day so grand and come disappointing minutes, I should claim happy hours in the end. So when we talk at night, I am more than excited to tell him just every little thing that happened during daytime.
He’s become sweeter; I’m more than pleased every time he introduces me to his new classmates. I know who his new friends are and them telling me just how proud my guy is of me, I feel the most blessed.
His first day in class and their Professor asked who among them have relationship; he raised his hand so proud. When asked how long we’ve been, he answered: “Almost five years, Sir. And still counting.” Everyone said “Wow!” And then his Professor told him to take care of me very well. Coz very least women these days can take care of a man and a relationship that long. He answered, “Yes, Sir. In fact tomorrow is our Monthsary.” This happened three months ago. He called me that night and told me the whole story; I was really smiling from the end line.
We study in different schools and when we walk at the Mall, I’m no longer surprised when someone just comes near us saying, “Hey Bud! Oh Hi, Pia.” and then a smile.
He has more than a hundred classmates all levels combined and I’m proud to say a number of them know me because my guy introduces his girl.
When they go online at school, he would show them our photos on Facebook and it’s just the sweetest when they say we look just the thing. I’M PROUD HOW HE BRAGS OF ME AND OUR RELATIONSHIP.
Yet again, I know my guy is not perfect. He was never one (and for sure will never be one). But it’s the way he changes NOW that makes me have the highest regard for it. No relationship is ever perfect. Saying it is is quite off-putting and all relationships go through a mountain of mistakes. I am absolutely proud how he’s changing. Not for the better BUT FOR THE BEST.
He’s become a better partner, a better friend; a student, a son, and a person. I always tell him this is the best him than he ever was.
When we met five years ago, he was the ideal guy. He was everything I ever dreamed my guy would be. It was not a mistake.
He was indeed one.
I know just how many girls out there admire my guy.
A varsity. A writer. A man with brains. A man with humor. A gentleman.
Yet what makes me stay thoughtfully powerful is when he tells me this:
“You are a cheerleader. You are a writer. A woman with brains. A woman with humor. NOTHING ELSE IS MORE IDEAL FOR ME.”
That after all the mistakes my guy did, what matters to me now is the transformation he made on himself.
PAST IS YES, PAST. But nothing in the past is straightforward to not remember.
Yet nothing is more powerful than allowing the present defeat marks and characters from that past. Empowering the present is making the future majestic.
With this, my guy does the best.
