He’s the disciplinarian in the family. When we were little we used to fear him a lot because he was very strict when it comes to coming home straight from school; our church duties and responsibilities, and even to our childhood crushes.
This person has taught me, guided me and instilled wisdom in me my entire life.
He has been the driving force behind my academic achievement. Everything I have been able to accomplish with regards to school and even in my personal life, I have him to thank for.
This person means the world to me; he is my one and only father, my "Tatay", my Hero.
I am a daughter of a Minister of Church. I grew up in a pressure situation where I was expected to look and act in a certain manner, and always had to put on a smile. But my Tatay serve as my best friend and taught me to love God first and foremost.
He taught me never to give up, that I should always go for what I want and to never stop trying.
Though Tatay has suffered a mild stroke about 3 months, he never failed to call me and my siblings everyday as what he usually do, just to check us, sending us text messages and MMS pictures and trying his way to check us online via net, that’s why sometime we call him our “Techie Dad!”
No matter how far I am from Tatay, I will forever be Tatay’s little girl.
As the song ‘To Dance with my Father again’ :
♪♫ If I could get another chance
Another walk another dance with him
I'd play a song that would never ever end
How I'd love, love, love to dance with MY FATHER again.. ♪♫
Happy Father’s Day Tatay!
