Philstar.com.ph had a contest to be posted on their Father's day issue.. and this is my entry.. i hope i win...
My Kind of Dad
When mom left us when i was still 3, and my 2 other siblings, both boys, were 2 & 1 to work abroad, my father was the one who took care of us for almost 25 years. Now i have a family of my own and he still took care of me and my family. My dad had a Mass Comm degree then, but he chose to settle in the province and
be a farmer, to take care of the Land and secure it for his children. When i was old enough to understand things, i hear my father cry because he knows he cannot give us what we always wanted, but he doesn't know, is that, he is all we need.
Because of him, we had valued anything we had. I want my father to have a break from taking care of us, and let us take care of him this time,that's why i want to give him the Feast for the Family man c/o Robinsons Supermarket. He really really deserves it.
I love you dad! This one's for you....
