I wonder if people in heaven are still blowing candles and singing birthday song. Will our age grow in number? Are we even going to remember the date we said hello to the world? I think nobody knows, until we get there. I’m not even sure if it is written in the Bible.
Anyway, back to the real world. Today, my mind wanders as my father, whom have gone to be with Jesus, marks his supposedly 62nd birthday. It is sad celebrating this day without his presence, which we missed. But I don’t want to be melancholic because I know that God was never wrong taking him “home”. Though pain sometimes creep in, but I chose to believe that you are in a much better place.
So today, I would like to celebrate and remember his life – life was tough for us, but he chose to persevere for us to have a good life. I hope you could see up there that we are living the life that you desired for us to live. Had you not willingly chose to be a good & a loving father to us, my sister and I, would never become what we are today. Your legacy will remain in my heart, and I will pass it on to my children. Though they only have a handful memories of you, your legacy will live on in your grandchildren, because you have intentionally gave us a promising start.
Thank you for everything. Your physical presence may not be here with us, but you are always here, here in my heart. Please know that You are always loved Tatay. From my heart to the heaven, Happy Birthday to the greatest man of my life. I forever miss you!
