“What do you treasure? What’s most important to you?” -Krista
Hmmm.. I think I have several of them. But this one is incomparable.
This is the one I treasure most. The relationship with my wife. As you can see at the bottom left corner, this photo was taken on November 20, 1995 when she was 32 years old. Yes, it was the only time when we decided to celebrate her 32nd birthday with just the two of us. No one else was with us. Not even our four little children.
We rented a cubicle with videoke and sang our favorite songs. I can still hear our theme song as lovers- LET IT BE ME, and it kept ringing in my ears to this day. “I bless the day I found you. I want to stay around. And so I beg you. Let it be me.”
That was really sweet. And I am having a nostalgic recollection of this trip down memory lane. That moment was very precious. Can it be repeated now? I don’t know if the children (all married now) and the grand-children will allow it this time. It was just one moment that we were able to steal in our married life so many years ago.
Now, I treasure this photo. It may have succumbed to the wear and tear of time but nothing can erase the treasure it holds. It doesn’t just tell time. It tells about a love story.
