'"The best love is the one that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more..."
The day before my birthday I was sick with bad sore throat and took the day off to rest.
That night I had a very high fever. Hubby came home from Singapore, bought me hot soup for dinner and later tucked me in bed. When he handed me my birthday card together with a neatly wrapped parcel, I was too exhausted to open them. In the middle of the night I woke up shivering and drenched in cold sweat. I reached out to touch the unopened birthday card and present and went to sleep again in a pool of tears.
In the morning, together we read the card and unwrapped the present. The birthday wish was written with beautiful words, the birthday gift, a prescription of his love…
The best love
is a lifelong love
that sweetens the joys,
softens the hurts,
two hearts as it grows.
