For you PAPA...

In my 22 years and 10 months of existence, I have in my life time, met and known many fine fathers. I have read about many great men… Yet, I can say at this very moment, I’m so glad and thankful that you are my father.

There are actually several reasons how grateful I am to be your daughter. First, you’ve made my years of childhood period delightful and quite funny to cherish in my memory. It is you who accompanied me to school the very first day I enter my nursery class and fetch me after school while mama is busy with kuya and ates’ …. Hehe… I can still remember when I was about 6 yrs old, it was the first time you beat me with soft broom.. (ooouuuucch!) hahaha… And since mama died, you’ve never neglected to attend school meetings… and other school activities that requires your presence. Even if it is sometimes quite “dyahe” on your part, but still you’re present. And though I have failed to be an honor student unlike when mama was still alive (coz I became lazy studying my lessons), but then I’ve never heard anything from you… you’ve continuously supported me and my siblings…. From my elementary years till I’ve earned my Bachelor’s Degree, I’m so proud walking with you on stage (dawa naga eksena c tita kc gusto nya cya ang ksama ko… hehehe)…. Second, though I’m a stubborn daughter most of the time, your treatment with me never changed over time. After your long “sermon”… you’re acting as if I never did something wrong. Third is that you’ve thought me the meaning of humility and respect. Fourth… though we are not that financially able, you’ve never failed to provide us with everything we need. You were able to send us all to school. And lastly, you’ve made me and my siblings’ conscious about the reality of God…

For all things you've lead me through and taught me

And for promising me that you will never leave me

Through and through you've shown me the ropes

Helping me in anything and everything I face

Everyday you're there for me by simply calling your name

Rarely do I get to thank you enough. So on this special day, I do exactly that.
