I told you I miss the way we were before, & you said “Things have changed”. I whispered to myself: “Things only changed because you did.
To the most honest person I know, to the leader of the family, to my hero, to the male whom I would want my future husband to be like, to the no. 1 man in my life, HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!! Thank you for all your sacrifices, for providing all our needs and wants, for always putting our family first above anything else. I always keep in mind the phrase you always say to me whenever I am about to go out of our front door (to school, to a party or to work) you’d say: “Are you going na? Bye, Ging. Wherever you’re going today, make me proud.” And I would remember that all throughout the day. Daddy, you were always strict with us, but if it weren’t for your guidance and love, I would not be the young woman that I am today. You always taught me that I didn’t have to be top of my class, I just have to learn to use my head; I didn’t have to be the most prettiest, I just have to learn to carry myself well; I didn’t have to own expensive things, I just have to learn to live a simple life; I didn’t have to be like anyone else, I just have to know who I am, what I’m capable of, and always be myself. You’ll always be an inspiration. I’ll always be here for you and Mama. I’ll always be your “paraygong kinamanghuran”. I LOVE YOU DADDY!!! ❤❤❤
