"The one who is celebrated..."

To my dearest wife,

Happy birthday sayang. It may be difficult to fathom that another year has passed, and I am sure you have experienced it to the fullest of your capabilities. It seemed just like a week ago since we celebrated your last, back here in Melbourne.

If someone asked me years ago whether I'd be in nuptials with the love of my life; in prudence of the matter I would accede to the notion. That is after all, the holy grail of all relationships - to find someone you love the most, and spend the rest of your lives together. But as we grow older we learn to believe that marriages and relationships are a dynamic statute of life; it is ever changing and life is not without its challenges, nor is love a smooth sailing bed of roses.

Relationships blossom and sours, love comes and fades away. But in spite of all this, I am forever thankful that I sail this ship with you as my anchor.

My dearest wife,

We have spent the last nine years pouring our hearts and souls into knowing each other, and every year you give me yet an even greater reason to love you even more. We have had our fair share of ups and downs, faults and fights, rants and arguments. And we shall continue to share even more in time, I'm sure. But thank you for being ever so strong, ever so faithful throughout all these dark days. Thank you for all the sacrifices you have made, all the time you've lent, all the effort you've put onto others I hold dear in my life. Thank you for always being patient with me and for always putting yourself after another's, but in lieu of it all - for giving me the honor to lead you in this small family of two.

My dearest wife,

You have always been my best friend, my best mate, my best pal. But today holds a reminder not of how much impact you've made in my life, but also in the lives of others. Of how much everyone has loved you for who you are, the person you have become, and the people you have inspired. My greatest wish is for you to be the very best that you can be, in whatever endeavors your heart sets you to, and doing whatever that fulfills you. No matter what, you will always have my support. I promise that you'll always have a shoulder to cry on when you're sad; a hand to hold when you're nervous; a snuggly hug whenever you feel insecure. At moments you feel most overwhelmed, you can be rest assured that I would always be there for you - anytime, anywhere, on anything.

My dearest wife,

May Allah grant you the greatest of health and providence of a long, illustrious life. May He bless you with love, perseverance and hope. May He grant you brilliance and vast insights into your life, and may this coming of age make you a better, wiser, stronger person.

May this coming year also open to you wonderful opportunities and a decoration of accolades within your grasp. May this year bestow you inspiration, sageness, courage and motivation to achieve everything that you have dreamed.

Thank you for all that you were; you are; and for all that you will become sayang. I miss you so much, and I love you ever so more.

There isn't a day that passes by without you in my mind. Happy birthday my dearest, have a great one.

Your dearest husband,
-JeP

Assalamualaikum,

I thank Allah everyday for blessing me with a wonderful daughter-in-law. Alas, despite all the trials and tribulations in my life, she is among the blessings that light up my family's lives....My advice to the both of you - married life is not always sweet and beautiful but the ups and downs that goes with it will strenghten your relationship, so long as you two are sincere and have trust in Allah's plans...mama
