SARAH Geronimo is the perfect portrait of a blissful and satisfied woman when interviewed online. When asked how she feels about being a housewife, her reply is: “Masarap po. Masaya.”
It’s so apparent she’s contented being Mrs. Matteo Guidicelli and their happy married life compensates for the resistance of her controlling parents for her to get married. But she admits it’s still a period of adjustment for her. “Nakakapanibago rin po at may mga adjustments na kailagang gawin kasi, siempre, ay asawa na tayo,” she says.
But she surely knows her priorities and it’s no one else but her husband. Last Sunday, she was a picture of a very happy young woman in ‘ASAP’. “Dahil may asawa na tayo, siempre siya po ang priority natin and, of course, yung health natin and giving importance sa health ng mga tao sa paligid ko,” she proclaims.
Starting their married life right in the midst of the corona pandemic gave her so many realizations. “Everyday you acknowledge na, lalong-lalo na sa nangyayari ngayon, that tomorrow is not promised. Pinapasalamatan mo na lang nang husto ‘yung buhay na ibinigay sa’yo ng Panginoon and also for the life of your loved ones.”
She adds that we live in very trying times. “Aminin po natin na sa pandemic na meron tayo ngayon, sa nae-experience ng buong mundo, marami pong nawawalan ng trabaho, so mas lalo ko pa pong pinapahalagahan ‘yung opportunities na binibigay po sa akin kasi hindi naman po lahat nabibigyan ng ganyan. I’m happy rin na nang dumating itong health crisis na ito, I’m already with my husband who is a constant source of strength and inspiration for me sa ganitong mga panahong sinusubukan tayong lahat.”
