Thank you to all commenters who expressed their congratulatory messages and well wishes to my little accomplishments at the post entitled I Did It! A Small Yet Large Triumph of a Filipina in Australia.
My aim in writing about it on my blog is never to brag but to honestly express that these triumphs are nothing as compared to the triumph that I considered large in itself- having a supportive, caring and loving husband.
I have heard a lot of sob stories in cross culture marriages. In fact, I wrote in the past about Cross Culture Marriage – For Better Or Worse and The Perils of a Journey to Forever. True enough, there were a lot of Filipinas who were unfortunate to have been treated like crap in foreign countries and with no family around to seek refuge and comfort.
I remember a friend in the Church once told me that she has the same concerns for me when she learned I have no family around in Australia.
Sis Maureen’s message
It’s rare to find a man who opens the door for their wives- my husband does!
I truly and sincerely appreciate her concern but she’s right! My Prince is all I need! By the way, Sis Maureen of Decors and Motifs is one of the most genuine friends we have ever had the fortune of knowing prior to getting married.

Sure, there’s a helluva lot of unhappy marriages that abound but there are also heaps that succeeded.
For a newlywed like myself, I am well aware that my Prince and I still have a long, long way to go.
My heart is truly overflowing with gratefulness for the blessing of having a husband like mine. He is well worth the long wait!
Despite giving up my life back home- leaving my family behind, “abandoning” my job in the government while preparations for the 2013 Elections was underway, and breaking away from my comfort zone- these are nothing as compared to the joys that marriage bring and starting life anew. Like with every marriages, how to deal and handle with challenges and trials that come is of paramount importance. Yes, we weren’t spared from all kinds of tribulations. But we were never swayed. Not one bit.
With My Prince that is my husband
At the end of each day, we always humbly offer ourselves in prayer to God seeking comfort and guidance that He may always keep us and help us honor forever our sacred vows to each other; that in the moments we find ourselves weak, it is not the persons that we married but the devil that worms its way to break us.
Marriage has always been a holy covenant that Satan seeks to devour but with God’s help, we will never be easy targets.
This marriage may not be perfect but I thank God that He has molded both our hearts and souls to have magnanimous and perfect acceptance of each other.
I can quickly turn the other way and simply cover my nose when he has stinking “bomb-like” fart episodes or he would only calmly quip “it’s OK” if and when I fart under the blanket. He is normally patient but he easily loses his temper when there are idiot drivers on the road and I would remind him to keep his cool; they are just idiots! Haha! The same way that he keeps me calm and collected when I am enraged about trivial issues which I blame my hormones or my HBP by the way. LOL! Seriously, I am grateful for my Prince for always soothing my nerves and massaging my ego
We perfectly support each other. He is my number one cheerleader and fan at the same time in all my endeavors and I am the same for him too.
Indeed, marriage is a long journey with many surprises and not all of them will be good; there will always be bumps and humps along the way but with God in it, there is really nothing much to lose sleep about.
