During holy week, the family prefers to stay at home, take part in the church activities, and resting. Sometimes, I thought of us going somewhere to rest and relax but the father didn’t like the idea. He is so against it. He would say, instead of enjoying in this Lenten season, it is best to repent and meditate. The father has a point. Holy week is the time to repent and reflect. We can have our resting and relaxing somewhere any time though. The sister and her family will be going to the province of his husband this holy week. And she is inviting me to go with them. I am happy because I really want to travel and unwind. I am so stress because of my brother. Going to the province is a good idea.
I told the father about the sister’s invitation. Unfortunately he is not allowing me to go. I felt really sad because I really want to go to rest. I asked him why, but he will not give me any answer. I did not stop asking his permission. I guess he feels irritated by me and say yes. Woohoo! I will be going out of the city for this first time. Thanks to my father for saying yes. I can pack my things now.

My father is turning 67 this April 7, 2014. We think of having simple celebration without his knowledge. The sister, brothers and I are talking of what we are going to prepare on his special day. I told the sister that we will be buying two cakes for him, one from us and one from his grandchildren. The cake also will complete the birthday celebration. No cake, no birthday, according to the kids. My father is so easy to please; a simple dinner at the house would mean so much to him. He has invited two of his friend, the closest one.
On his 67th years, I thank God for giving him another year to be with us. The father is very sick last year. I wish that his condition will get better and he will not be so sickly anymore. Although, we fought sometimes, I always pray for his health. The photo above is the celebrant with the two cute cakes that the sister and I bought for him and the foods that we are going to eat. It is not a best photo I must say because he doesn’t himself posing with the cakes. Well, he said he is too old for this. Lol Again, happy 67th birthday father, we love you always!
