The two studied in the same school. Gerard was in third year high school while Jobel was in her sophomore year when they first met through a mutual friend. From being friends, their relationship grew into something deeper and more meaningful. Jobel became Gerard’s first girlfriend.
As time went by, Jobel became more noticeable to Gerard. According to Gerard, he saw something unique about Jobel that outshone the others. Jobel knows how to balance her life. She was focused on her studies at the same time she allocates time to her family and friends.
That was the moment when Gerard realized something.
“Kakaiba itong girl ah,” he recalled.
(This girl is different.)
It was neither her beauty nor intelligence alone that made Gerard fell for her even more. There is something in her that made him want to strive and become a better man.
The two finished high school. Jobel graduated as the class valedictorian of their batch. Both of them decided to take up nursing because they dream of becoming doctors someday.
Fours year later, Gerard and Jobel finally completed their course and graduated. For the nth time, Gerard was again amazed by Jobel.
“She graduated as the only girl in her batch with a Latin award,” he said.
Their dream to become doctors was just within their reach after passing the nursing board exam. Making adjustments while in medical school takes a lot of patience. Despite that, the two would always encourage each other to study well and spend time with the Lord especially during difficult times.
“Our faith in God and our love for each other inspired us to do our best,” Gerard noted.
In April this year, Gerard received his Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree. In the same month was their 10th year anniversary.
Gerard narrated how it went.
“I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our success together at the same time surprise her for what she has done in my life. So I came up with a plan that took me almost a month to prepare.”
“When the day of the surprise came, the hard work and effort could not even compare to the euphoric feeling I felt during that moment! There was a flashback of everything we’ve been through over the past ten years.”
When asked when they will get married, Gerard said: “That day will come in God’s perfect time.”
“I am still in the process of planning for that special day when she’ll say that sweet ‘Yes’,” he added. - Kami Media
