Yesterday, we also went to San Pablo Laguna for Herbert Aldrich’s (Bhert’s son) christening. I was with my officemates and ex officemates. The food was great and yummy. We left at around 4pm. From there, I went home, prepared my things for the overnight and headed straight to Antipolo.
I read somewhere that it is a good practice to write down the things that we are grateful for so that we could appreciate life more. So today, I start with my own list.
Today, I am grateful for:
- The opportunity to go to a new place and have a break from my hectic work
- Being able to buy a stored value MRT card thus, there’s no need to fall in line for single journey tickets
- The 100 peso gift certificate courtesy of Sykes
- Jen’s invitation to an overnight swimming at Antipolo ü
My Dear Mylene,
A pleasant day to you too.
I am so grateful that you appreciate very much our way of disciplining all of you our dear children. It is because your mom and I would not want our children to be misled in life. Much more that you are still too young to understand the different factors affecting is in this world we live in. you see, there are two directions of our life as we grow. These are the negative and positive directions. Should you be thinking that you know better than what other people do, you are absolutely wrong. You might be following the negative direction of life.
On the other hand, if you would be thinking that you will be careful to follow the right path of life, you cannot be so sure about it. Why? Because you are young and as you grow older, you will be more exposed to society and encounter a lot of temptations that might lead you to the wrong direction. It is in this kind of life situation that we, as parents, come in to give you the proper guidance as much as we can, although there are instances that we do not give you the precise advice because of some problems that we also encounter. We hope that you will understand and forgive us too whenever we are in such kind of attitude. Anyway, our main intention is to help you develop yourselves to become a worthy member of a good society.
And now, asking the favor of our Almighty Lord, to grant us his blessings and that I may bestow also such blessings on all of you my dear, dear children.
With love from your dad,
