This day, November 25, is one of my happiest days of my life because we have reached one year with my Honey Marecel.
The day when we first met is just like yesterday. I can't still believe that she becomes a special part of my life now. It was when we formally met and shook hands during the burial of one brother in Asuncion. I have seen her in the school at Aces when I was a student taking Education and she took up Commerce. I was fourth year and she was in third year. We just smile when we met in the school but we were not that close because I didn't made the move to know her name not until during that burial when I knew that she is one of Jehovah's believers.
She was so charming and accomodating. After that, we had a casual talk in the school, started to get to know each other better. I must admit that i gotta a crush in her but I was keeping it within me because I was afraid to be failed. Why? Because I was thinking that she had a boyfriend considering her beauty and zealousy in Jah's service. Our relationship was only up to casual talk with no close friendship. To think that I am the type of person who is not outgoing. I was hiding myself in the shell of shyness.
Another milestone in our relationship was when she graduated wayback year 2006, and I was the Master of Ceremony together with Maam Milet. I was asked by her Ate Annie to have a picture taking and we took a pose and I was standing beside her. I have the copy of that picture now and I love to look at it. After that, we parted ways temporarily.
During circuit assemblies in Asuncion, she always had a part. I always looked at her and admired her so much. But because she always go with the DO's or CO's and even representatives from the branch office, it hindered me to get to know her better. I was thinking that she is too "holy" for me. I also heard that a Bethelite was courting at her.
It was one circuit assembly when Ate Annie invited me together with other brothers and sisters in their house. It was my first time to step in their home but she was not there because she was on duty at the bakery. We recieved a very nice accomodation. Next special assembly, we were again invited to come to their house and this time, Marecel was with us. Her textmate from Digos was with us also and I understand that this man was so eager to court Marecel but to my big surprise, she spent more of her time with me, ahem. This man also noticed this as well the way Ate Annie treated me. That was also the time that I learned that she has no boyfriend. Because of that knowledge, I was then very eager to court her.
Through my friend, Arlyn Tagnong, I got her cellphone number, and from then on, we started to exchange texts. Then I asked her, with her permission to court her, and I was so happy because as I percieved, I have a big chance of winning her heart. So, I visited her in her house formally on November 25, 2007, Sunday, 7:30 pm. It was my first time to court a beautiful lady in a place where I was not used to go. I mean it was only after a few visit in her house, not often, unlike my first gf.
I went there with Richard. I really don't know how to start a serious conversation amidst many persons in her house until we were able to talk exclusively. It was a casual introduction until I finally expressed my feelings for her. It was sudden that I felt numb but I was positively believe that she won't fail me. It was also a surprise when she expressed her love to me and told me that she admired me long before when we were studying. My heart beats so fast that I almost jump for joy but I only hold myself. I even wanted to made my motorcycle fly because of happiness when we went home that evening.
I am very happy that I finally found a girl whom I truly love and long to be with for the rest of my life. Marecel made me inspired to go on with my daily struggles and to keep my faith stronger everyday. I love her so much that I cannot afford to lose her. She is my life, and she will be my wife in the future. She is the one I am longing for to be with. She is so kind, affectionate, industrious, obedient and all the good qualities a man is looking for. I will never regret of knowing her. I will always love her for the rest of my life. I am not a perfect person, but I will do my best to be the best man for her.
