Daddy's Girl | Happy Father's Day


Fatherhood

I am a well-fathered daughter. My dad is a strong influence in my life. When I was younger, every tough decision I made, I consulted with my father. He gives sound advice up to this day. He never lets me down. That's why I love him dearly!


I want to share this letter addressed to him a few years back. It sums up our relationship and how he became my role model in life. 

After reading my letter, you will understand why I don't take for granted the time I spent with my dad. He embodies the word "fatherhood". Each moment feels like Father's Day whenever I am with him. 

 Daddy's Girl

Dear 'de,

Remember when I was a kid, you always rub my back each morning to wake me up? I am doing that now to my little girl plus I added a little "stretching" to the routine ; ) I find that my daughter is happier throughout the day when I do that.

How can I forget the times when I patiently waited for you to come home from work at night because I know that you have Japanese take out boxes as "pasalubong" for me and my siblings. Thus, I feel guilty whenever I don't bring home a little something for my own daughter ; (

You started the tradition of hanging our socks every Christmas eve so you could shower us with gifts and see our delightful faces the next day. And because of that, we still hang our socks until today even though I am already married (I still send my socks to my parent's home ; p) and both my siblings have decent jobs. It was so much fun that I plan to start that tradition this year.

You taught me the value of hard work. At an early age, I learned how to earn my keep. I remember selling ice candy to our factory workers so I can buy my favorite stationery. I learned early on that I have to work hard to get what I want in life.

I remember that you were the one who accompanied me to all three universities where I took my entrance exams. You patiently waited for hours until my exam was done for the day. And when I finally graduated in college, you were teary-eyed because you always say that education was the best gift you can give to your children. I can't wait to have the same relationship with my baby girl!

I could not forget the time when I got so sick- I could not even walk, you were the one who rushed me to the emergency section of the hospital. From then on, you never fail to ask me if I have eaten my lunch or dinner especially when I am working. I tend to focus on getting the job done than my growling stomach. You have instilled in me that Health is Wealth. That's what I plan to share with my own child and my future children too.

Yes, we are not rich. Your gift is so much more than that. You gave me everything I need in life- good values, good education and good health. I would not be the woman I am today- confident, self-sufficient, loving (oh, I could go on and on and on...) if not for you.

Thanks for everything and I love you, 'de!

xoxo

Our father-daughter relationship is definitely a positive one. I know that it's about time to give something back to my dad who has given me so much more than I deserved.

Since we share the same passion for coffee and current events. I invited him to a coffee date where I presented to him a gift of gold for Father's Day. He was surprised but he still managed to give me the biggest hug for always remembering him ; )
