To The Best Father in The World

"The greatest gift I ever had
Came from God; I call him Dad!"

Life hasn't been the same since you decided to leave us for work to provide us a much better future. We were never prepared but still I promised to be strong and to guide my siblings on your behalf. To be firm in the sea of challenges and winds of storm, to keep warm in the cold lonely nights, to cry your melancholy and sorrow, to shout your joy and express every sentiment you felt was not easy and consoling from afar.

Nonetheless, you kept your faith and still keeping it and desires to continue to become a great father, provider and a better person. You never failed to shower us with all the blessings God has endowed you. No wonder He never ceases to pour you fortune. You are a generous giver and a cheerful receiver.

Today, on your special day, we would like to give you MILLION THANK YOU for everything. We wouldn't be who we are and where we are now if not for you and your prayers. We are so blessed to have a father like you. I know mom felt so blessed to have you in her life and I know she couldn't thank you enough for being a good father and for being with us until now.

Everyday, more and more are touched by your generous heart and your brilliant mind. May you continue to be a blessing and may you try to build a firmer wall as to where you should take your stand in choosing right from not-so-right.  I know you are a man of principle, I can attest to that because I acquired it. I've seen you imposed rules to correct crooked doings. You might not know it and now I tell you that I really admire you for that. You shouldn't wonder where I got my trait, stubborn (in a good way) and firm. 

We love you to the moon and back, dy! ! ♥♥♥

We always pray to God that you are safe and sound there abroad; that He will keep you away from harm and may God always remind you how much He loves you. Now, you shouldn't worry about us here because we are always in excellent condition. God has our back. Thank you so much for everything, dy. You are the best father in the whole wide world. We always look up to you. You should know that. Just continue to pray and stay in God’s side.

♥ Happy, happy birthday Dyyyy ♥ -ate, kuya, chin, bebz, chun

My Nephew: My Little Love

Hi. Whoa! It's been a while. This is my first post since forever. Oh well, it's not the end of the year yet so yeah! I can do this.

This is something I want to share with you. Not my kind of story to tell but I am proud to share my little one. Not my twist but a twist in the life of my younger sister which at first was hard for me to agree to take. 2 years ago, she got pregnant at the age of 18. It's not that I don't want a baby, a new member of the family. Maybe I was just disappointed because for me it was something parents didn't wish to happen at such an age and has not even finished school, yet. Why I care so much about my parents? Because as much as possible I would never want to hurt them or even want to see a tear, a disappointment and a heartache. I knew how hard life was for my parents that all I ever want to do is delight them (even when my mother is not here with us anymore, she's in a better place with God) with all my might. However, my father kept his faith and told me to keep mine too. I have no choice but to hold on and just be there for my father and for my sister as well.

Few months later, the fruit has ripened and is ready to come out. Everybody was thrilled, busy preparing the gadgets to use to capture the first exposure of my nephew, my little love. Upon learning my sister’s safe delivery and seeing a new life has finally came out, a tear fell out of nowhere. I found myself ecstatic that I couldn't even contain it.

Now, my almost 2-year-old nephew is like an alarm clock for me. He daily knocks on my door and cries when I tend to ignore him. Sometimes he would even wait for me to come out. Poor little boy. Never misses chance to get inside the room whenever the door gets opened. Loses his temper when I don't carry him immediately. Gets up easily when I don't accompany him watching his all-time cartoon movies. Nah! This kiddo is tiring me but I don't mind. He probably loves me so much. *conceited tita* Haha

I bet you've been imagining how my nephew looks like. Ayt? Here are few photos of him.

Isn't he adorable? He's my stress reliever. His welfare is my priority while I don't have mine, yet. Life isn't the same without him. I thank the Lord for this enormous blessing, my nephew my little love.
