so i was in the hospital for a week and missed an important event in my son's young life: his 6th grade recollection. the school sent us a letter saying we parents have to be their on the afternoon of the second day with a letter for our child. i sent my mom over instead.
and here goes my letter.
Well how was your recollection? I'm pretty sure much has been learned and realized these past 2 days. Maybe you have matured too? I can only guess.
I've always said this, time and time again: You, Migo, are MABAIT na bata. Of that, I am so proud. Despite being makulit and pasaway, I know that you are one kind-hearted young man. You are smart, hard-working, loving.
I'm sorry, anak, that I can't be with you today. I'm also sorry I can't even write legibly because I'm attached to a dextrose =) (And I have to write your Dad's letter for you later pa!)
I'm sorry if sometimes I am unable to give you what you want. You know your mommy's limitations right? I'm also sorry if sometimes I side with Julla even if she's the one who hurt you. I'm sorry if sometimes you think I'm unfair or I don't understand you or I neglect you. I'm sorry for the times I've hurt you physically and emotionally. I'm sorry if sometimes I disappoint you when sometimes I don't know the answer to your question.
You know, the only thing I want in this world is for you to be happy. To soar high. To achieve your goals. To reach your dreams. You asked me once, what do I pray for? And I said I prayed to God that He gives you what you prayed for. That has always been my prayer.
I love you so so much.
