Entry #4 - My God's Gift




How wonderful to have a man that is a gift from God. Is it not beautiful? I think so. I will be happy to share my love life to everybody. My love story starts this way, my sister who lives in Texas posted my name in the pen pal lists. We all know that once your name is posted in the pen pal lists, the men who are interested to make friends with you will pay first before they can view your personal information. But in my case was so different. My husband told me the reality how he found my name in the Internet. He said that while he was surfing in the different websites of Filipina singles, it happened that he saw my name with my email address. He was so interested to know my name Victoriana Alferez. He wrote down my email address and started sending emails to me. But what was funny here, since I lived in a province where there were no computers available in our place at that time, my sister in Texas replied his message and she gave my cellphone number. My husband didn't know that my sister replied his message. He called me in my cellphone at 4 o'clock dawn time. He did not know what time was it in the Philippines. I answered his call early in the morning and I was so surprised! When I heard his voice, you couldn't believe it, I was in love with his voice. His voice was so sweet and gentle. That was our very first talk. We exchanged emails after we talked. I had to go to Iligan city that was two hours drive from home down there just to send emails to my sweetheart. He supported my Internets and transportation's expenses. That's fine with me. We built our relationship for almost two years before we agreed each other. He went to the Philippines last 2001 of April to meet me and my whole family. It was also the time where the foreigners were warned not to travel Philippines because it was not safe for them to travel plus the war in Iraq. But my beloved husband did not think about dangers in the Philippines; what was in his heart and mind was to meet me in person. Is he not sweet and brave? He was not scared. He stayed in Iligan City for three weeks. we had a very good time with each other. Before he left the Philippines, he gave me an engagement ring and I accepted it with a big smile and big heart. At that time, I felt very happy that finally I met my real man, a man that my heart was looking for. I had many boyfriends in the Philippines but my heart chose only one and that was my husband. It was unbelievable! He started working of my paper works for fiancee visa and finally I got out Philippines December 17,2003,afternoon and arrived Georgia early in the morning of December 17,2003. We got married January 24,2004. And now we lived happily and God gave us one cute and sweet little baby and we named him Luke Alferez League. Hope you enjoy reading my love story. Thank you and God bless us always!
