“I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish enough “Hello’s” to get you through the final “Goodbye.”
— Bob Perks
To our ever cute and sweet darling baby boy,
First of all, I want to greet you a belated happy birthday. As fast as the year have passed, you’ve also grown up so fast. You’re taller, smarter, funnier, kulit-er (if there’s such a word) and more talkative than ever.
You are more confident and independent now, not shy approaching others and talking to them. Dancing in front of a crowd or at the stage. You know our routine na every morning when we have to go to office, never have to cry and ran after us. You are also becoming more curious by the day, that you always ask us what happened or how something happened, what a word mean and tries to use it on your own in every possible way.
I know I say you are talkative but that’s not a bad thing at all. You always know how to express yourself. You also have a way with your words that you can have whatever you want. I remember your summer teacher telling me that you can be a lawyer. You are witty and never runs out of reasons. You are so fast that we can’t fool you around. You always notice it when we misused a word or said something wrong, never afraid to correct us and laugh with us and I love that about you, anak.
As I told you last year, we are going to have a lot of fighting days. Am sure that it will be more this year. Then again, please keep in mind that whatever fights we may have that you will never be loved less. That if we do it, it means we love you enough to correct you. We just have to do what must be done to discipline you and prepare you to be the man that you will proud of.
Liam, please never stop being the funny smart little charmer that you are. Your smile and sweet hugs never fail to brighten up even the most gloomy room. Always remember that mommy and daddy will always have your back and that whatever we do we are always thinking of you.
Happy Birthday little boy. I wish you enough… We love you. 🙂
PS, we did not have that much fight naman this year. very petty and you learn fast that’s why we don’t need to fight again and again. Thank you for that anak.
