…by me, her husband. 🙂
Hello dear readers of Superkaduper!’s awesome blog! This is Niki, the husband, taking over for just one entry. She has no idea that I’m doing this so let’s just let her find out on her own, eh?
I’m not a natural writer like my wife and I’ve never written a blog entry like this. Although my wife encouraged me to try it before, I always felt unequipped and scared to just write down the things in my head and let random people know about them. But I’m taking this chance to write one since it’s for a very special person. One worth taking risks for and bragging about. My only objective for this short (and a bit cheesy) entry is to glorify and celebrate the most beautiful and wonderful person I’ve ever met. A person who’s also celebrating her birthday today – Kris.
BEAUTIFUL, I just want you to know. You’re my favorite girl.
I’ve been singing that to our baby girl in full falsetto lately and it reminded me of how I always thought of us dancing to that summer song in the streets of Cuba whenever you would mention that “bucket-list trip” of ours. But that song always reminds of you because, yes, you are truly beautiful. Always have been. That even though you’ve had moments this past year where you questioned if you’ll ever get your body back from 2009 or at least weigh around 110-120lbs (woops!) again, in my eyes, you are still that beautiful one-of-a-kind girl I met in Ventures 1 Bldg 12 years ago. Even if you think that the second pregnancy made you more unflattering, there’s really no damage done. I think you still don’t need make up to make you more presentable because to me, yours is natural. Age has been very kind to you unlike other people my love. That’s how I see you every single day and, yes, this new season will make you hotter than you’ll ever be. I just want you to know that.
WONDERFUL… matchless in every way.
“Here In Your Presence” is one of my favorite P&W songs. And I just caught myself singing it in my head while writing this entry. Maybe God wanted to remind me of how awesome you’ve been as a mother, wife and friend this past year. You’re a supermom to a lot of people because of how you raise & nurture our 5-year old fireball at home plus the addition of our 2-month old Amazonian princess. You’ve been focusing on our baby girl a lot and battling body aches but those things haven’t stopped you or even slowed you down in making sure that our family’s cup is still being filled with love. With the countless things that occupy your mind and physical space, you still find ways to make sure that your family is healthy both in body and spirit. You have so little time for yourself lately but you always make it a point to really consider others and connect. That even though I always encourage you to do things for yourself & enjoy your alone time, which is rare, you’ll still prefer to just be together and create simple moments. That’s just how you’re wired I guess. Your ability and personality to spread so much love to others is just wonderful. You might be thinking that I’m describing a different person… but in my point of view, that’s you.
We will be celebrating YOU for the next few days and I can’t wait to shower you with love through food, kisses and quality moments. You deserve more given our current season and I hope your cup will just overflow just like how you’ve been pouring in to our family and to others. We will dance in the streets (of Alabang not Cuba) to celebrate how beautiful and wonderful you are. Enjoy all the love you’ll receive today and don’t be shy to ask for what will make you feel celebrated and happy. Guilt-free. I thank God for you Kris and what He’s preparing for you this year. Happy Birthday my God’s Best! I love you!
