Simbang Gabi

Our little "tradition" ever since we became a couple.
They say once you complete 9 mornings of Simbang Gabi, you can make a wish and most likely, it will come true.

From 2000 until 2004, I kept asking God to have Norvz as my husband. Funny, even before the book of The Secret came out, I was already secret-ing. So yeah, I BELIEVE in that SECRET.

I've never told him that. :)

2005, he was onboard and I never got to complete Simbang Gabi.

2006, I was pregnant with Monica and could barely wake up early in the morning. Like 3:30 am early.

2007, we did it again.

2008, we made sure we completed the 9 mornings of Simbang Gabi. It was unspoken between us what we "wished" for at the end.

But I'm so sure, we asked for the same thing.

2009, we're not together. We both wish we could do it again but that won't happen.

So I am wide awake at 2:40 in the morning, reminiscing about the times we'd wake up early and go to church and actually listen to the priest.

Note that we made it a point to attend the 4am mass to be sure no PDA couples were around.
We were serious about it.

Anyway, this was us back in 2005, a few weeks before he left for his first onboard contract.

I love my husband so much.
