You were standing at the window, watching the sun setting down. The sky was already colored with many shades of orange and red. You held a cup of green tea in your hand, trying to keep your hands warm. Winter was finally approaching and slowly the weather became colder and even rainy some days. You turned around to have a look at the watch which was hanging on the wall, showing you that it was already after six. You wondered where he had been. Normally, he had to be home already.
You take a sip of your tea, feeling the hot liquid warming your inside in no second. Taking a deep breath, you turned around and went to the nursery to check up at your six month old son. He was sleeping peacefully in his crib. You went closer to the crib, covering him with his blanket even more to prevent that he became sick. Kissing his soft cheek, you whispered “I love you.” Then you stepped out of the room, closing the door behind you cautiously.
As you went back to the living room, a special photo drew your attention. You smiled abruptly as you looked at it. Taking it from the sideboard, you placed yourself on your couch, wrapping your body with a thick blanket. The photo pictured two people in love at their happiest day. You and your husband Rami.
Before your wedding party, you both attended a photo shoot, organized and taken from one of Rami’s best friends. Your back was turned to the camera, but your faced looked right into it, a wide smile was plastered on your lips. Your eyes were shining so bright, almost compared to diamonds. Your hands were placed on Rami’s shoulders while his were wrapped around your waist. His face was turned to you, staring at you in the most loving way.
Sometimes you even wondered what you did to deserve a husband like him. To be honest, before you met him, you had never the need for anyone in your life. Your friends sometimes urged you to go out with someone. But you never felt like it was necessary. While your friends spent their time with their boyfriends, you’d rather spend your time at home, cuddling in your bed and watching romantic series.
But one day changed your life completely. Making you aware that you truly needed somebody in your life. It was love at the first sight, as you bumped into him in the middle of the street in Manhattan. You were in a hurry because you were late for work and probably it was the same with him, and as you turned around the corner, you bumped into each other, tearing the folders in your hands down. The two of you knelt down at the same time to pick them up, and as your fingers touched each other softly, you took a look at the handsome man in front of you, and it hit you hard. You fell in love with him right the second.
After that incident on the street, you saw him almost every day on your way to work. Smiling to each other or even greeting lead to him asking you out for grabbing a coffee with him. You exchanged numbers, and one evening he even took you out to a fancy restaurant. He confessed his feelings for you and you did the same and after that night, you were lovers. You thought you couldn’t be happier in your life, but you were wrong. When he went on his knees and asked you to become his wife, you were the happiest woman on earth.
Your fingers slowly brushed over the glass of the picture frame and you smiled. You looked adorable in your white wedding dress. Almost like a queen. “Never thought I was the kind of dressing in white.” You mumbled. “Me neither.” Someone whispered in your ear, making your body flinch. As you turned around, you saw Rami standing right behind you with a smirk on his face. “I didn’t even notice you came in.” You said. “Probably you were too much distracted with your thoughts.” He replied, kissing your cheek and then placing himself next to you. He also glanced at the photo. “I thought you would turn me down, as I proposed to you. I was very afraid.” He confessed. You looked at him questioningly. “Why would you think that?”
“Well, you never seemed to be the kind of woman going into something as serious as marriage. We never really talked about marrying. Whenever we passed a bride shop, you wouldn’t even take a look at the wedding dresses in contrary to other women. I never expected you to say yes.” You laughed after he finished his statement. “Well, you see, I’m wearing a wedding ring, right?” You pointed at your finger. “And that has to mean something.”
“I’m very glad you accepted me as your husband. I love you.” You caressed his cheek and softly placed your lips on his. “I love you, too.” You sighed. Then you stood up from your place. “Are you hungry, handsome?” “Mhmm…” You clapped your hands together and smiled at him. “Do want to help me preparing dinner?” He stood up as well. “I’d love to.”
You woke up in the middle of the night. Soft cries came out of your son’s room. You rubbed your eyes and gazed at Rami who was peacefully sleeping. You carefully stood up, paid attention not to wake him up because he had to leave very early in the morning and needed sleep, put your nightgown on and quietly closed the door behind you. As you entered the nursery, you picked up your son and placed him in your arms. “Shh.. baby. Mommy is here.” You sat down on the rocking chair next to his crib. “Are you hungry, Lincoln? Do you need to be fed?” While you were feeding him, you hummed his lullaby which always calmed him down, rocking him back and forth.
You stared at his feature. He looked so much like his father. He had his curly hair, his nose and most of all his beautiful green eyes you always fell in love with. This wonderful creature in your arms was stealing every bit of your heart every single day. You loved him with your whole being.
Small laughs escaped your lips and you stroked Lincoln’s cheek. “Mommy is so much in love with you, baby. I love you so, so much.” The craziest thing was that you had never pictured yourself in a situation like this. You never imagined becoming a mother. You mom always complained about when you were finally getting married and having kids, so she would have some grandchildren to be proud of.
Truely, you never planed marrying or having kids. You believed, you were fine with your single life and didn’t need any serious relationship. But then you met Rami and he changed your whole vision of life.
“What about me?” You turned your face to Rami who leaned against the door, his arms crossed as a small pout appeared on his face. “Daddy needs love too.” You laughed at him. “Why are you up? You need to sleep, Rami.” He shrugged his shoulders, coming closer to you. “You were missing.” He explained. “And you know I can’t sleep without you. I need you as much as this precious thing needs its mommy.” He pointed at Lincoln.
“He’s beautiful, Rami, isn’t he?” He stretched out his hand to go through the tiny curls of his son. “He’s the most adorable kid I’ve ever seen.” You smiled happily. After Lincoln was fed, and already drifted to sleep, you stood up to lay him down to his crib. But Rami held you up.
“Take him with you. I want him to lie between us. ” You nodded in agreement, doing as he said and with your baby in your arms you went back to your bedroom. You slowly laid Lincoln between you and Rami. He placed a loving kiss on his son’s cheek and interwined his fingers with yours. “I love you two, so much.” Rami mumbled before falling asleep again. “You mean the world to me.” His pointer finger was wrapped with Lincoln’s tiny fingers. You watched them a little while before your limbs felt heavy and you drifted to sleep as well.
Whatever you did to deserve such a wonderful life, such a loving and caring husband, such a cute and adorable baby boy, you appreciated every minute with your family. You were glad that faith had something so precious in store for you.
