COUPLES CORNER: Meet Mr. and Mrs. Thompson

Rodliz’s Nest

It is Wednesday here once again and it has been a week now that I am looking forward for this MEME as I have many untold stories that I guess I’d like to share. But I thought we would go straight with how and where the couples meet hehehe just so excited here to share with you how we started and all the trials along the way before we finally met. Anyway, I guess I have to set aside that for now and would tell you about me and me and me lol just kidding, it is just he is a private person and due to his work before, it is better and more safe if we would keep those informations from the public, though I can post a little bit about him.

Now, let me introduce myself first, I am Anne, an orphan since I was on my third grade, from the day my father died, it was instilled in my mind that no one can help me except myself even though I have older sisters who took good care of me when I was in my elementary and high school, since I am the youngest in the family but I still grow up independently, like most of you here I struggle life to survive and to finish my college. Have you experienced when you ride a Jeepney and you don’t have a fare but because you want to go to school, you just ignore to pay your fare? I know it was wrong but those times I didn’t have any choice though I did not do it oftentimes, at that point all I had in mind is to go to school even I don’t have enough money in my pocket, there was one time also that I have asked our coordinator in the scholarship organization that I was into if she could get me as her helper in her house every Sunday, I was so glad that she hired me. I just stopped because the in charge of the laboratory I was assigned to as a working scholar offered me to finance my daily expenses, yes I was a scholar when I was in college where my tuition fee was free, so I don’t have a problem with that but my burdens were how could I get to school everyday not to mention that we are like how many kilometers away from my school and some projects that I need to attain for. But that struggles made me realize how important the family is in our life and I had wish that someday I would have a family on my own.

During college

I finished my college through my own determination and effort as a Bachelor of Science in Commerce major in Management Accounting. I thought my struggles would stop from there but I was deadly wrong, I never thought that GOD would still test me along my journey.

Maybe those hardships in life taught me to be friendly and be funny, well that’s the only way to weigh things when life is at stake with all the storms, that comes along our way. And those storms help me to be patience, I can keep things for so long to myself but once I would get to a point that I can take it anymore, I will just blow up. Being an orphan also made me so sweet to my two daughters though there are times we fight especially MJ, in the contrary I always make sure that they get the things that I never had before, though not too much because too much will not be enough, I had bear in Mj’s mind that the only treasure they could only get in this life is education, no one could ever take that from you, because it would be yours forever.

Terry is a simple man, they are nine siblings and he is in the third from the eldest. He was born in Georgia but went to many places during his work before, now his work is computer related to one of the company in Maryland, he got his master’s degree many years ago and now he is planning to teach in one place. Lol. He is a loving husband, very understanding, he got no child when I met him but obviously now he already had faith, our little Faith and he is so kind, my friends always tell me that I am so lucky to have him, and those trials in my life before prove me somehow that if once in your life, trials keep in your side, never lose hope because in some way a man would be there for you and will walk with you, hand in hand in your journey.


So when you are in search and still was not able to find the right man, be patience because the right one would be there for you. Maybe GOD let you choose to meet the wrong man so that when you meet the right man, you would value the person and the relationship with him. Love has a profound meaning, you can’t measure it so when someone said goodbye, accept it and let go of the past because that is the only way to find the partner and will hold you in the dance of life.
