my dad

On this day today in 1914, my father was born. He would have been 92 had he not died on February 14, 1986 of a heart attack. I am so far from home now but he is in my heart everyday. We were very close. I have written about him two years ago when I started blogging. You can read about him here Please follow the link and know about this man who has given me everything I need to have in life. It is not a long read. This is my only way to pay homage to his kindness and his sacrifices for me. And while you do that, please pray for his soul. Thank you very much.

PS.

I just realized I am a day late considering that my blog follows Philippine time. So, my father's birthday was on May 19.

Nabasa ko na papi. Natatandaan ko yung ibang kwento mo nung hinahatid ka niya sa school mo habang nag babarilan ang mga tao dahil sa Martial Law.

ipagdarasal namin siya mamaya.

Still having jetlag problems? :)

I have friends who write about their fathers so that they can express their feelings of the bond they had with their father, even though their fathers died a long time ago.

I can still remember my dad vividly and dream occasionally about doing things together with him.

It is good that we still have such feelings. I am sure your dad would have been proud of your acievements and how you have brought up your family, rolly.

MGA TURO NI TITO:
Twenty years of teaching must sure amount to something. A new friend in cyberspace suggested I ought to have a journal by now. I agree.

Jack of all trade, master of none. First a disclaimer. My students have discovered this blog and they might think that what I write is gospel truth. Worse is they might find an argument that they think they can use, for some reason or another, against their teachers. So, to set the record straight, it is NOT. As a matter of fact, I write and open it to feedback to get another view in the hope that somebody would tell me if I am wrong and reenforce my thinking if it is right. Not that I will accept anything thrown my way, though. Just so I can think about it some more and decide whether my original stance is right or definitely off tangent. So there. I hope that clarifies everything. Now, on to blogging.
