This day in history from:

Advance Mother's Day Greetings!

I thought now's the time to sneak this post in since my impending election work may take me away from the net during the day itself.

You see, Bea is fond of leaving me notes she slips under the door of my room. I think she loves the write (Duh?!?) and I do hope she would become a better writer that I am.

Anyway, one of the best letters I got from Bea is this one (even took the time to scan it):

Let me translate this for you:

Dear Daddy,

Thank you for being Mommy and Daddy to Nico and I. This shows how much you love us and thank you for your sacrifice.


I have to admit, that letter choked me up when I got it. If you're not Filipino, you would know how much impact this letter has untranslated.

And with this letter, you've got to admit, Mother's Day is my day, too.

Happy Mother's Day to all the deserving mothers! And to you too, my ever dearest Mother. The same letter Bea wrote to me could apply to her.

Except, of course, the being both mother and father bit.

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.

Side Oath

The Lawyer's Oath
I do solemnly swear that
I will maintain allegiance to
the Republic of the Philippines,
I will support its Constitution
and obey the laws as well as
the legal orders of the
duly constituted authorities therein;
I will do no falsehood,
nor consent to the doing of any in court;
I will not wittingly or willingly
promote or sue any groundless,
false or unlawful suit,
nor give aid nor consent to the same;
I will delay no man for money or malice,
and will conduct myself as a lawyer
according to the best of my knowledge
and discretion with all good fidelity
as well to the courts as to my clients;
and I impose upon myself this voluntary obligation
without any mental reservation
or purpose of evasion.
So help me God.
