Si Papa Robert, Si Mama Johna, Ate Joba, Ate Excel, at Si Kay-kay.

Hello! Ito ang pamilya ko. Lima kami sa pamilya. Tatlo kaming babae lahat at ako si Super Ate.

Si Papa, 49 years old. Si Mama, 42 years old, Ako ay 18, Si Excel ay 13, at ang aming bunso ay 4 years old.

Hindi kami ang perfect family. Pero enough na ang family ko para sabihing blessed ako at sila ang pamilya ko. Hindi kami ang pamilya na puno ng luho. Tama lang na nakakakain. Tama lang na makapag-aral sa magandang paaralan. Tama lang na mabili namin ang aming mga kailangan. Tama lang na maging masaya. Tama lang din na may mga problema. Hindi ko hangad ang marangya buhay para sa kanila. Hindi kami magiging masaya sa sobra-sobra. Sapat lang, okay na. Masaya ako na ang isang bagay na proud ako sa pamilya ko ay tinuruan ako ng mga magulang kong maging kontento sa kung ano ang mayroon. Natuto akong magtiis. Natuto akong mangarap. Natuto akong humanap ng solusyon sa mga problema. Naranasan ko ang buhay na masasabi kong okay na.

Si Papa Robert…

Siya ang pinaka-idol ko sa lahat ng tao. Siguro kahit hindi ko siya Papa, siguro siya pa rin ang tinitingala ko sa lahat. Hindi siya perfect Papa! Madami siyang kakulangan. Pero siya ang best Papa and kung may options man na papipiliin ako ng Papa, siya pa rin ang pipiliin ko.

My Father got an accident that changed my life when I was still very young. He was an intelligent man. He was diligent. He was someone everybody rely in the office. He was responsible. He was independent. He was brilliant. He was excellent. He’s a loving father. He’s a caring brother. He’s a great Uncle/Tito. He was certainly the BEST for me.

and he can’t walk alone without a walker.

The incident that caused a very traumatic experience to the whole family. The incident that reversed our lives and that made us all see God’s beautiful plans.

I can’t really forget the many times I heard from people how lucky I am for having him. He is the kind of man I wanted to be with forever.

He is the man of wisdom. He is the man of knowledge. A man of advices and affirmation.
