Today, it’s my 3rd year in WP. If you think about it, I wasn’t an active blogger, only until this year. I remember the first time I decided to start a WP blog. It was because of Mr. husband’s birthday. I couldn’t buy him a gift that time, so I thought of something that he wouldn’t guess in his lifetime, as his gift from me. YES, I started a blog for him. It maybe laughable, but after he found out about it, he was almost in tears. He hugged me so tight and said passionate words. I was right though, he never had guessed I’ll post online about his birthday and my message for him will be seen by anyone. I felt like shouting how much I love him; I want to declare my love for him. It may sound childish and silly, but at that time, I was desperate to give him something that will make him feel-see my true feelings for him. Then I recalled my grandmother’s words of wisdom: “The most valuable gift you can give to anyone is your heart.” What will it be? I already finished my paper card and the decorative hanging photo frame – but there’s still something missing. I know what things he needed, but I couldn’t afford them.
We were quite in a bad time that year (2010). The recession hit us very hard and I couldn’t even find a job. Despite of that, the 2 of us were hanging on to our feelings to keep our marriage. We both had our insecurities, like – he wanted to get me presents for my birthday , but he couldn’t afford them. I was also the same. But during those time, “Love kept us alive.” So as his work.
But as he viewed and read my first WP entry, he was surprised, speechless, and almost in tears. I wrote my simple thoughts for him. He understood them. I was glad that he did… (My First WP Blog). I reminded him what we’ve been through to be together. So despite of the problems we had, mostly caused by the hard hit of recession in Greece, we should never forget our feelings for each other. What is the most important thing in marriage? It’s beyond the material things you can purchase by money. We should not underestimate LOVE.
Does anyone remember when you started your WP blog? What made you do it?
