There were some days when I pushed them in the corner, or sometimes place them in different rooms to make up for the constrained space problem that we were facing. However, my husband has been very considerate of them, and he made sure these lounge chairs are always in the right condition (perhaps the most compassionate action a man can ever do) and today, five years after that time I find these chairs to be playing an important role in our lives.
Over the years life wasn’t the way it started, it improved, and we moved into our new house, a whole lot bigger than that apartment. This house was not only a special place for us but also for those chairs. In the years, we realized how important it was for us to communicate with each other at the end of the day, we understood that we’re married for a purpose, to share and make the best days, and what could be better than these lounge chairs?
The two lounge chairs were always placed together, next to the window in room for a purpose- to be the place in the house where the couple can give each other the right company. Every evening, after the end of a busy day at work, we make sure we sit on those chairs and talk to each other, not about the work but ourselves, and we do that every day.
Undoubtedly, our journey so far has been incredible; I couldn’t have found a better companion and couldn’t get the one better than me. We’ve learned a lot from each other, from others around us, but we’ve learned a lot from our families who’re so much in love with us, even today.
Things change, furniture trends come and go, but none could replace these elegant lounge chairs that came from my mom. These have been the finest piece of luxury in the house, and without a quirk of doubt, I can say they’ll always be there. They’ve been moved from one room in the house to the other, sometimes to the balcony; they’ve been treated well and even mistreated, but they still look the same.
I believe, one must should just not decide the value of the things at the wrong times ( like me), sometimes the things we thought were unwanted become an integral part of our lives and memories. I’ve learned that mothers’ best understand the needs of a child; rather we, children are the ones who take their own time to understand the love.
As I sit with my husband, talking about these five incredible years of our marriage, the phone starts ringing. It’s my mom on the other side to wish us happy anniversary and today I’d like to take a moment to say, “Thanks Mom, for these two beautiful lounge chairs; they make us enjoy each other’s company, even more, every day!”
The story of a marriage and two lounge chairs couldn’t have been better.
