Its easy to say that we love our family but keeping our words and showing our love to our parents is always a struggle everyday. A family is always polished by trials and tests and when you survived all of those then you will always came out stronger. I am proud to say that i am shaped by a simple family but with strong and supportive roots. Im happy for a fact that we are not well-off yet our accomplishements yiern us to strive more as days passed. We have evolved as closed as we are since the start because we knew its in each other's strength we could finally achieve our dreams. If i could just share every inch of struggle we had surpassed then i dont think this page is enough. We had underwent a lot of trials as family and im happy to share that the 29 years of marriage of my parents has been fruitful, rewarding and ultimately inspiring.
As daughter, i always wants the best for them and my ultimate dream is to finally see them happy, fulfilled and stable. Im happy with the fact that my siblings have the same aspiration as i do and each one tried it harder everytime we are put into tests. There were countless times i want to quit because those were some of the circumstances i was dominated by frustration, disappointments and perhaps i was at the edge of human perception. Yet, everytime i do so, i think of those times where my mom choose to stay with us despite my dad being jobless at that time and having in her shoulder that responsibility of feeding us unconditionally. When i am hit with those moments i am pissed sometimes, i choose to reminisce those years where she patiently look for means just to bring a little food in the table. Now, that we're grown ups i dont think we will let any trials nor any person broke the heart of anyone in the family.Finally, our last card is currently on her journey towards the achievement of her dreams. For God\s sake, we will not be what we are now if not with them and if not of her unconditional love for us. She maybe an antogonist to someone else life but to us she is will always be the star who made us of what we are now. I believe that the ultimate benchmarks of any parents lies on every child he/she rears. With that, let me just give this space to honor our parents and my mom in particular. There would be no us without them. Some of our family memories that id like to share with a happy heart.
