since gail is 24 today, i decided to give him...
24 gifts every hour for 24 hours on his 24th birthday!
yehey! i woke him up at 12 midnight for his first gift (a bday cupcake), but waking him up broke my heart a little. so i resumed the hourly gifts at 6am when it was really time to get up. hehe.
my birthday is never a big deal to me, but gail's? it's something i want to celebrate ng bonggang bongga, like thank you God and thank you Mommy Sha and thank you Daddy Vic for loving each other and bringing this wonderful boy into the world on April 19, 1987. like that.
blows my mind every time i step away and look at myself with him. i cannot, for the love of justin bieber, believe that i am married to this strong and wise man who is even more gwapo than justin bieber. so if you think you wont die of mush, go ahead and read below the things that i love about gail.
he's clean and organized: we have identical umbrellas bought on the same day, but mine looks a hundred years old and his looks and even smells new. how this happens i dont know. also, he always carries two fresh hankies with him every day.
he's for all things healthy: we turn into vegetarians every lunch and dinner. he's the only person who convinced me to eat veggies. we were friends then, and when i ate my first veggies because he told me to, i knew he was something else.
he's wise: every decision that he makes goes through an intricate process of praying, weighing pros and cons, consultations, research and more praying. as the man of the house he has the final say in everything, and i cant be more thankful for that. whew.
he's humble: he always says that he's not magaling, pero napopromote.
he's a great cook: im the sous chef at home. sous chef = taga gayat at taga gisa.
he's my personal serenader: he replaces song lyrics with my name, i love you, mahal kita, and similar phrases. quite the charmer.
he grows every day: i see him get better because he studies well and he strives for excellence. i honor and admire him for his focus and i wish id be as industrious as he is. speaking of...
he's industrious: this guy is never lazy, and when i say never, i mean it. he says "nakakatamad" but he still works, still cleans up, still studies, still lists, still organizes, still takes photos, still reads, etc. i dont think he ever sat on our sofa for more than 30 minutes, except for when he's having his quiet time.
*if you got to this point, bless your heart, maybe you're cheesy like me*
he has style: every morning, i have a screening. i change my top/bottom/shoes/bag based on his "recommendation." also, he can pull off an all white ensemble, something i havent done ever except on my wedding day.
he loves Jesus: his relationship with Jesus is priority. when i see him with his bible, i see a dome-shaped shield which i cannot enter lest i get struck by lightning. hehe. i see intensity when he spends time with God, and at the same time it gives me peace and joy, that no matter what, he'll be fine because he has Jesus.
it is the birthday of the man i love the most, so this blog entry is about him and his awesomeness. im overwhelmed with things to say about gail, but you get the point. i love him and this is his birthday gift for this hour. ;)
*if you're still here reading, congratulations for living through mush*
