A Father's Letter to His Son- A Recollection Assignment

Dearest Jeric,

You are God's gift and blessing. I do not know why or what I did to deserve such a wonderful gift from God. And I am forever thankful to God for his gift of you becoming my son.

I love you- no matter what you do or don't do. And this has been, is now, and will always be. Remember always what I said when I was still tutoring you- ok lang magkamali. If I, like any other parent, seem over-protective or strict at times, it is because you still benefit from that protection. There are some bad people in this world my son, who are not fair, who don't follow the rules, who hurt other people. There will come a time when you will be strong enough to face these bad people alone- but not just yet- you are 13  and Grade 7 and there is still a lot of growing and learning for you...

Jeric, my son, let's both continue to pray for God's blessings and grace, let's work and perservere as we should; let's dream, dream big and make these big dreams come true.

Son, I will not always be around. And you will not always be 13. Someday soon, I will grow old, have memory gaps and lose to you in tennis. Someday soon, you will be stronger, wiser, richer and just as awesomely handsome.

We frequently joke about you giving me a room and a butler in your own hotel. But this need not be a joke; if you pray and work hard enough, and if you study with just even half the hours you spend on the computer and your gamrs, then this is possible- if this is what you want.

Whatever good you want Jeric, suportahan ta ka (I will support). I am so proud of you and I hope that you will always see and feel the love your mom and I have for you, always.

Love you son,
Awesomely handsome papa Bong

PS. I am putting these in my personal blog because I think that the actual letter that I will give you will be strategically hidden from everyone, including you. Let's pray that this blog entry survives the test of time and strategy.

Jeric is such a lucky boy to have someone like you as a father.

Sant Ritz is more than just a home. Its combination of condominium status with contemporary ville living.
