Time flies as I always feel. It has been 2 years since I and ste got married. We were two then. We are three now with a addition of our little daughter Elsa. And Elsa is already a 7 months sweet little baby. A lot had happened in the past year. This year as a couple, we have seen the extreme of happiness, pain, separation and the reunion.
Soon after our first anniversary, ste had to fly to NZ for work and I had to stay back in India with in-laws. I was 3 months pregnant with Elsa. I couldn’t accept the separation and it was hard without him. We both missed the togetherness. Every time I went for scanning I would cry and would laugh at the same time. I was just feeling the extremes of emptiness without ste as well as the joy of carrying a little life inside at the same time. Ste state was even harder. But at the some time we realised and understood the situation and acted strong. I experienced all sort of pregnant thing alone. Baby shower happened in a grand way but nothing could fill the void.
I couldn’t wait and my little girl couldn’t wait to see her daddy. She arrived 7 weeks prior before due. I had to undergo emergency delivery. It was that time I felt so bad for letting ste go far away. Every kind of emotional cry happened that time. But soon after hearing my baby is doing all well, I was calm and happy waited to show our little bunch of happiness to ste. Ste came after 3 days of delivery. I poured out my heart cries. The most unforgettable moments in our relationship was that. Then, Ste was with us for 3 months working from India before flying back to Auckland.
It was myself and my little charm Elsa. 3 months passed by. Lots of happiness, loads of memories, shooting photos and videos to send to her daddy was our full time job. Then we processed visa. Finally, it was our time for a reunion in a far way land with my husband and her daddy. It was this day we were waiting for a long time. And when the day came, we were really happy for a new life in a new land with our little girl.
We reached Auckland. Between, with much joy and expectation Ste had already set a place for us with everything we need. We arrived and then it was just happiness around. It just reminded me the verse pro 13:12 “Hope deferred make the heart sick, But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.”
We witnessed the joy of growing a little girl. She is adorable.
In short, if I look back on my relationship with Ste, I would just thank God for making it so perfect. We have had good times of learning, understanding, accepting, growing and loving each other unconditionally.
