This day in history from:

Father-Daughter Bonding

It's been a while since Bea and I went out together alone...

During the tumultuous final years of my marriage, Bea and I found ourselves hanging out together, going to the mall and other places, just the two of us since her mother did not want to go out with us. She would rather go out with her friends everyday for most of the day. Needing someone to be with, she even stuck with me on my choir practice (that ran well into Saturday night), and the Sunday morning masses.

Since we moved out, though, with Bea having her grandmother (my mother) to be with and with Nico needing equal attention, we did not have that much time together anymore.

But for some reason, my daughter wanted to come with me when I reported to my government consultancy today. It's probably because that office is located in front of a major mall in Quezon City.

I usually park in that mall anyway but I told her she had to endure a long walk with a trip across the EDSA overpass with me. But she was adamant.

She endured the long walk and the half-day wait in that office as I attended to some pending matters.

But she got it all back afterwards. She ate a lot at Terriyaki Boy and got some magazines and candies. In the interest of fairness, I bought Nico a DVD of Cars.

And of course she had a good time. She got the usual "She's pretty," remarks at the office, and I always thanked those who made it (because she got that from my gene pool, heheheheheheh!) and they told me to consider getting her into TV commercials, etc.

I refused because I know if she becomes famous, someone will attempt to come back into her life because there'll be something in it for her already...

And I realize I miss those days when it was only Bea and I together...

Enough of this, time to go back to work on some paperwork...

Same case with LP and myself. We'd hear mass and eat out, just the two of us, simply because LXH (louse of an ex-huband) would rather spend the whole weekend lying in bed, in front of the TV. And he's such a pain to feed, LP and I would have breakfast, lunch and dinner together because he didn't really stick to a dining schedule. (Imagine brunch at 3pm, and if he didn't like the food, he'd drive himself to Goodah.) But he'd be up and about at 5am if he had golf that day.

Haay. Good riddance to them useless parents.

Parent and child bonding time is very important so that the kids know that you love them and it helps them grow into independant people. So keep up the bonding time.

The prayers on the side...choir...obviously part of a church right?

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.

So help me God.
