Happy Father's Day

Fathers are just wonderful in a million different ways.
My father...
  • A simple man, he has no classy attribute, he is comfortable wearing worn-out clothes and slippers (sometimes of different colors alreadygelakguling He is humble in many ways.
  • A no-show man during PTA meetings, Closing exercises at school, Tribute to Parents program but he did surprised me when he showed up during my college graduation
  • The man who don’t smoke, don’t drink… the only vice he is into is giving his roosters a quality time (instead of having moments with love ones) but never involved himself in any cockfighting event sembah
  • The man of sacrifice and works so hard just to provide his family with their needs and wants
  • The man who spent half of his life as a military man but talks with patience and was never strict to us as expected by many…
  • The man who seldom talk but whenever he does, he talks with humors
  • The man who prefers silent whenever a harsh time knocks
  • The man who never fought back his wife tumbuk(hindi sya under-the-saya, mabait lang talaga sya).
  • The man behind Boracay's Best...ADEL’S Polvoron sengihnampakgigi

To my dear Papa,

This is for all those times that...
            you love me, although I am not worthy of "too much"…
            you gave me advice, but I raised my voice to argue instead…
            you gave me back my faith every time I lost a fight...
            you stood by me although I pushed you so hard so you’d go away...
            you held me although I wanted to be independent...
            I neglected your authority as my father...
            I took you for granted...
            I disappointed you...
            Down the line...

I am sorry peace
I love you Papasenyumkenyit
I am proud of having a man like you...
Thank you for being you despite having a daughter like me…

Here's a Special Prayer for our Dads

Lord,please bless our fathers,
these men who mean so much to us,
who are greatly responsible
for who we are and who we are becoming.
Bless them for having the courage
to do what’s necessary to keep us out of trouble,
for making us do the right thing,
for helping us build our character,
even when it makes us angry;
and bless them for pushing us to do our best,
even when they just want to love us.
Bless our fathers for being our protectors,
for leading us through stormy times to safety,
for making us believe that everything will be all right
and for making it so.
Bless our fathers for quietly making a living
to provide for those they love most,
for giving us food, clothing, shelter
and other necessary and not so necessary material things,
for unselfishly investing time and money in us
that they could have spent on themselves.
Bless our fathers, Lord,
for saving some energy for fun,
for leading us on adventures
to explore the outer reaches of ourselves,
for making us laugh,
for being our playmates and our friends.
Bless them for being our secure foundation, our rock,
for holding on tight to us...until it’s time to let us go.
Lord, bless these men we look up to,
our role models, our heroes,
our fathers.
In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
