COLOURS OF LIFE

BY GRACE C. ESPIRITUSANTO

“The most important thing a father can do for his childrenis to love their mother.”

“By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he’s wrong,” says Charles Wadsworth.  As a son or a daughter, when was the last time you and your Dad had a simple heart to heart talk? When was the last time you treated him to a good meal, a haircut, or a show or merely a good time together? Have you ever told him lately that he meant a lot you? Or how grateful you are for all the things he’s done for you? Have you forgiven him for his shortcomings or failures? Have you ever bought him a new pair of slippers, his favourite fruit or his vitamins? Or his dream watch?

For me, my father was the best one I could ever have. He may not be rich but he was caring, thoughtful and a very jolly person. He always encourages and supports the things which he thinks are goodplans or ideas and suggests new ones if they’re not so good. He taught me how to appreciate and love good reading materials. He encouraged me to keep on studying and helped me develop my writing skills. He is no perfect father – but he sees to it that there is always food on the table and that education is a must. And for all the good things he did – he’s my greatest hero!

As Margaret Courtney said, “Be kind to thy Father, for when thou were young, who loved thee as fondly as he? He caught the first accents that fell down from thy tongue and joined in the innocent glee.”

To my papang, VICTORIANO PANTALEON SANSON CRUZ, you will always be in my mind and  in my heart!

And to all the fathers out there…HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!

MAY YOU CONTINUE TO CARE AND LOVE YOUR WIFE AND CHILDREN!!!!

“I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.”— Sigmund Freud
