My Daughter Christine Graduates from Grade School

My 12-year old daughter, Christine, graduates from elementary school today. How time flies so fast!

I can still remember so freshly how Christine was just a little baby back in our Makati days. It was not that too long ago.

But she has grown much already. How I wish she won't get bigger anymore!

I'm just glad that I'm around enough at this point of Christine's life. Can give her warm hugs, warm gifts. Other Filipino Dads have to be physically away, and many times, kids feel abandoned.

I wish for Christine to grow up as a devoted Christian. One who is able to give and receive love. To feel worthwhile to be herself and to others. To have a sense of true security.

I thank and praise God for Christine, and the gift of opportunity that I can be here for her.
