Sweet and Spicy ~A Life with You

Share Button

It seems like only yesterday
That our wedding date was set;
Although it’s been so many years,
The memories linger yet.

I guess that we’ve experienced life,
In almost every form.
We’ve enjoyed the greatest pleasures
And weathered every storm,

We’ve walked together side by side,
As we traveled on through life;
And I have always felt so proud,
That you chose me for your wife.

Happy Anniversary Dear !

(I had somewhere read this poem,though i am unable to locate the origin right now,but it lingered in my memory since then !)

Marriage….Its a  strange but divine, difficult but necessary, sweet but demanding , joyful but harsh change in one’s life . So is it for me !

A decade back when i entered into this sacred Institution called marriage, little did i knew what fate has stored for me. As any other bride, i too rode the roller coaster of emotions .Emotions like pain of leaving my home and parents, friends and relatives , emotions like fear of facing new people,living with them, adjusting to the whole new way of life.There was happiness of being with my soul mate ,but at the same time a stinging feeling of leaving behind all the wonderful memories of  lovely childhood gripped my very soul . And with a heavy heart and hopeful mind i  began my new life as a wife,as a daughter-in-law,as a sister-in-law etc. Whole new set of relations and relatives ,a new family,a new home, a new role to play, i was scared of fumbling and falling , but that one person on whom i trusted enough to hand over my life, that one person on whose assurance i move ahead and accepted new relations, that one person who never failed to support me ,that one person….my soul mate ,always made sure that i was comfortable and happy in the new surroundings !

Now after a decade , when i sit back and count my blessings and grievances, there is lot to say and wish…..but still it has been a nice journey with all its ups and downs, tears and  giggles, fights and  sorries.All these years i tried to be a dutiful wife(what??), a sensible better half( What a joke !) and loving and caring life partner(man i surely do have a funny bone !).Those who know us, know what does the phrase “Opposites attracts ” means ! Yeah..we are poles apart….While he is calm and irritating, i am hot tempered and irritating 😉 .The two pictures explains our nature .

There had  always been fights  between his Rock music and mine soft numbers, an ongoing  tiff between his technical knowledge and my culinary prowess.His liking for bland or sweet food is always opposed by my love for hot and spicy stuff. I darn his love for tea while he loathes my drooling over paanipuris.He loves Sunrises,while i adore sunsets.The remote control of Tv  never heaves a sigh of relief as there is constant switching of channels from  CNBC  to Comedy shows. Even today as i am struggling to hold my emotions and pen down my thoughts, he is busy banging his head with programming codes at office.Still we are together ( Miracles do happen) and today we completed a decade of togetherness !

Our sweet and adorable son just made our family a picture perfect one. And today i am using my space to let you know, dear hubby, that despite of all the differences between us, i still consider you my best friend !

  24. Congrats Alka!! That was a very sweet yet emotional post. what i feel is its actually the north pole & south pole feeling that keeps the magic going…. Life would be pretty boring if 2 people living together would be same. I got married when I was 20, and after so many years I really have fun with the differences (well most of the time:-) )!! Wish u a forever together with each other!

  26. Man oh man! That was so sweet and aptly put. The last part about your differences just made me sit and laugh. You must have practically described all marriages.

    Wishing you a very a happy and blessed anniversary. Wishes for more to come.
