I know it was very difficult for them to allow me broaden my horizon because doing so would make me stay away. When I decided to move apart from my comfort zone, I was so scared that they might just refuse BUT to my surprise, I have with me their full support and love all the way.
When I’m extremely busy and I tired, I pause and remember their facial expressions whenever they cheer me up. Even during college, their unconditional love was my weapon, too in passing all my painstaking subjects! You know, upon answering our major accounting exams, my short prayer was, Lord tabangi ko. Para ni kang Mommy ug Tatay.
Aside from my fear of God, I owe to my parents the values and principles that I have always lived up to. I am happy that my parents aren’t that strict, that of the usual severe cases where you’re being manipulated and misguided. They’ve proved to me that I really don’t need to be a super strict Mommy someday just to gain the KIND OF RESPECT that I ought to feel from my children. They’ve proved to me that I really don’t need to act like a CCTV Camera to my future children just to make sure that they understand the word RESPONSIBILITY.
My parents allowed me to fall in love, to get hurt, to scream, to make mistakes, to fall apart, to swim, to stand, to trust, to be heard, to be loved, to take risks, to miss opportunities, to cry my heart out, to mourn, to celebrate, to live, to be thankful, to inspire, to take chances... TO LIVE LIFE.
So many words, yet I just want to say these lines: Oh how I just miss my best lovers. Oh how I just miss them. :’’>
