My girl told me that there is going to be an oral test next week. She said it is a very important exam and she wants to be good in it. And the topic she wanted to share with her friends and teachers is about her father... I know she does not have any faint memory on her papa... but nevertheless, she wanted to talk about him... with her permission, here is an excerpt of what she has written...
My father would be 51 years old this year if he is still alive. When I was two and a half years old, my father passed away, he died of an heart attack. He was only 37 years old. I cannot remember much about my father, what I heard about him was through my mother. She told me that my father loved to carry me whenever he came back from work, I was his favorite child because my mum said I was very cute and chubby. I do not know how it feels to have a father because I have grow up without one. I really cannot remember anything about my father, the only memories are through the pictures that we have. But all I know is, my brothers and I, we love him very much. He is our papa....

What an awful thing to happen to such a young family. And such a young man. I am so sorry for your loss. I, too, know what it's like to grow up without a father. It leaves a great big hole that you think nothing can fill. I know it is so hard to be both mother and father to your children. It seems they have all turned out lovely, smart, and independant. You must be a very strong and a very brave woman.ReplyDelete
Awww...so touching!! Great post! : )ReplyDelete

It's a pain to always have to be strong for others all the time & for yourself as well, and I am glad u have taken comfort in getting to know God. Bless you all, Claire.ReplyDelete
