Gia-Gina In Italy tagged me to do the following Meme:

1. Dig into your blog archive.
2. Find your 23rd post (or closest to).
3. Find the 5th sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the entire text of the sentence along with these instructions. Ponder it for meaning, subtext or hidden agendas...
5. Tag five people to do the same.

Here it goes...

It is really those particular times that may have no meaning to anyone else except us... your lunch and my afternoons.

This quote was taken from my June 17, 2004 entry around the time I first started this blog. Actually that entry was exactly one year before the hubby and I got married. We or rather I was overwhelmed with all these feelings I was having and equally frustrated. Yes, we hadn't met in person yet and that would come about two months later. But I knew that I loved the hubby. For whatever reason, he found that niche in my heart that had been empty so long. That niche that I kept hidden from everyone else except him. There is so much in our relationship which may seem so insignificant to others like talking on IM during his lunch while I was still starting my day in a timezone three hours earlier. Sometimes it doesn't seem much to others who have the luxury of spending all their free time with their significant other but when you can't, you treasure these times. That's what I was writing about. What makes that entry even more special is the fact it was that night I told the hubby I loved him. Yes, I know I hadn't met him, but I just knew. He had made his way into that space in my heart. One year later on that exact same day, we pledged to spend our lives together.

I know I should tag a few people to do this but since I don't know too many readers to tag personally... I will leave it up to you, the visitor, to do this Meme if you choose to. It's been an interesting exploration and I thank Gia for sending it my way!
