I’ve been blessed to have my dad; my Ama as well as my uncles from both my mom and dad’s side who helped raise me. “It takes a village to raise a child”- a recurring theme in mine and my son’s life. For that WE’RE wealthy. We are abundant and want for nothing. Below are a few pictures of our "tribal men." LOL!!!
Dad – I love you for who you are and I am truly blessed to have you in my life, My King. I’ve never seen you cry or hurt, until I saw it on your eyes on that day long, long ago when I was 15 years old—we won’t get into details of that day in fear that I’ll hurt you all over again. You have stood by me when no one else in our family (tribe) believed in me. You believed in me and you taught me lessons that I will forever hold near and dear in my heart. It is only here will I admit “yes, Daddy, You were right.”
Now that you and mommy are getting “up there” – ako na ang bahalang mag-alaga sa inyo. Gagawan natin ng paraan—we always do, di ba? You always tell me “relax ka lang, magagawan natin ng paraan ‘yan – Basta, tandaan mo—lahat ng bagay may paraan.” Your words always put me at ease. When mom and I had our differences, you were our psychologist, referee, mediator, etc. You knew what to say to us to resolve any issues/differences between us. You are the strongest man I know and I know you are very proud of me and Jonathan.
Daddy – Mahal na mahal kita. Maligayang Kaarawan ng Mga Tatay sa inyo! HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
Your Daughter, Maritess aka The Healing Diva
