Today is a very special day, not because I just enrolled (and welcomed myself to the most crucial year of a Medical Technology student) but because today my Daddy turns 48.
If you are reading this right now (I know you are), I just want you to know that we miss you as much as you miss us. You are the most hardworking person I know and I am forever grateful for that but please don’t forget to take care of yourself. I’m glad you’ve stopped smoking and I know it’s high time you avoid drinking Tsing Tao, too (Hahaha!). Sorry for all the headaches I’ve given you over the years. Hands down for putting up with me and my hard ways. Although there are certain thing that we’ve argued about (and still do), I am glad that you are my father. I admire you for your selflessness, lively personality (which unfortunately I don’t have) and love for us. I may not be very vocal of how much I love and appreciate all the things you do for me, just know that I appreciate everything with all my heart.
Although the phrase “thank you” will never be enough to repay you for all the things you gave up for us, just the same… Thank you. Thank you for giving me the best of everything. I’m saddened by the fact that you are not here with us to celebrate but I know you’re doing this for us, for our future. I hope you’re happy as much as we are for having you. I love you so much! Oh I almost forgot, happy birthday! And I’ll see you real soon.
