Letter to My Future Husband # 2

Dear Mr. Florabel Sarausa:

I’m sure you know by now that sometimes, I have a tendency to become a bit, well, fixated on things sometimes. And lately? Well, I’ve been sort of fixated on the beginning of us. No, I’m not talking about the moment our parents conceived us, dude (even if I know that would be a bit too much fixating….), but I am talking about a birth of sorts. OK. That admittedly did sound a bit cheesy, but it neatly sums up my point.

Really, I’m talking about the moment our story began. The moment (or moments…?) we went from a you and me to a we. A fusion of sorts. Dude, I know you’re probably looking at me and smiling right now, but that’s not the sort of fusion I’m talking about. Stop it. Geez.

I hope to have all my letters in a spiffy little book by the time we’re married. But because, at least to me, this topic is a pretty significant one, I wanted to take things little by little.

My question: How do I know that my beginning hasn’t started yet? Heck, it could have started without me even knowing it. Sometimes I think, “Oh wow. What if I know him already?” Hint: By him, I’m talking about you, dude, in case your head is still spinning from that fusion comment.  Whatever.

He (you…) could be the guy I pass on the street every day and don’t even give a second glance. You could be the guy sitting across from me at a fast food chain. You could live down the street from me. We could pass each other every day at school and not even know it. Or we could be sitting in class together. Or, you could be all the way on the other side of the world (the romantic in me has visions of us meeting in the middle…or something like that).

You could even be someone I’ve known forever, maybe even since I was a kid.

Oh, shoot, I wasn’t even thinking much about that last one. Now I’m going to want to go through my entire friends’ list on Facebook.

I think those, though, would be the guys I’d least expect to be you, dude, if that makes any sort of sense at all.

Isn’t that an odd thing to think about? That I’m sitting here in 2013 writing this letter to you, thinking you’re someone I have yet to meet, and for all I know, you’re already in my life.  Maybe I even talk to you on a semi-regular basis, but just haven’t had that spark moment yet, you know? The moment where everything comes together, and I think, “Wow, have you always been this amazing, or have I just been asleep at the love wheel for the last few years that we’ve known each other?”

And then my friend brought something interesting to my attention.

Para nako, naga-depende raman na sa perspective. Basi diay ikaw nagsugod na, siya wala pa. Naa lang man jud na siya sa paligid-ligid ba. Wa gani ka kabalo, basi siya gasugod na sa imu unya ikaw wa pa kaila sa iya.

Maybe I’ve been a bit self-absorbed, dude, and for that, I do apologize. I’d been thinking so much about my beginning with you that I haven’t really given much thought to your beginning with me. And it’s true. Our two beginnings may not even align. Our moments could be, well, two very separate moments. Separated by months, even years and maybe even continents. Do you ever think about that? Have you found me, but I haven’t found you yet? Can’t wait to find out. Until we meet… 😉

Lots of love,

Labelle ♥


Letter to My Future Husband # 1

Dear Mr. Florabel Sarausa:

As of the very moment that you are reading this, I might already be changing from my wedding dress to my sleeping gown.  I could never afford being around while you go through these words I have come up with as I step up from adolescence to adulthood. I might as well be beside you but cuddling beneath the sheets, trying to bury my face in the pillows as I am afraid you’re gonna see me blushing.


Either way, I am more than happy and thankful that we are finally starting our lives not as two people who have just decided to stay under the same roof but as one couple bounded together by God’s love, for eternity. You were a long-time coming. Today is March 25th of 2012, and I have just turned 18. (laugh) I am still very much new to this so-called adulthood, and although we haven’t officially met yet, I am very much looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together: holding each other’s hand and exchanging smiles as we make idle strolls in the nearby park, evening meals together, lots of cuddles and movies, laugh-trips and food-trips to cherish, through the good times and the bad times.  Oh yeah, there will be those little, little skirmishes, but I would have perfected my pout by then; I’m sorry you will not be able to resist it. Haha.

You must already be wondering now why on earth am I writing about a life with a man I haven’t even lived with yet. Ngano jud diay? (laugh) Because I want to be connected with you as someone God has prepared for you to marry. Of course, we’ve probably had those three-to-five-hour-long talks already, but the past has its own way of changing itself. History sometimes gets retold in a totally different way than how events could actually unfold. There are so many things I wanna tell you, some about much of my life I wish you had been a part of.

Most people do not have the faintest idea yet about who and what kind of person their future husbands will be. But one thing I do know: you are a loving, warm, gentle soul who seeks for wisdom from God in leading this household in accordance to His will (and whose arms I can’t wait to wrap myself in a huge embrace someday).

Our love story may not be much like those of Disney fairy tales or Jack and Rose’s or even Edward and Bella’s.  But it will surely be told in the most remarkable way, because it is God, the Almighty Creator and our loving Father, who has written our story.  I am looking forward to meeting you five years from this very day.

I’ll see you not later but sooner in the not-so-distant future.

Lots of love,


P.S. At the very least, at least we can get a kick out of these letters when we’re older. And maybe pass them on to our grandkids? Okay, I won’t think that far ahead….yet. 🙂
