Father's Day Thoughts...

Tomorrow is Father's Day. I'm ready to greet some friends that I know are Dads. Or send friends text messages asking them to greet their fathers for me.

Whenever this time of the year comes along, I can't help but be a bit emotional. My Dad has passed away eleven years ago. It's been a long time. It's just sad because whenever I think of my Dad, there were more bitter memories than sweet ones.

I wasn't a good daughter when he was alive. I don't know why I was that rebellious and never gave myself a chance to be closer to him. There must have been moments that we somehow tried to bridge the gap but the rebel in me always get in the way. I remember there was a time I was about to give him a Happy Father's Day card. It was supposed to be my first time to give him something like that. It was filled with I LOVE YOU's and THANK YOU's written on it. When the day came that I was about to hand him the card, we had a big fight. I was so angry at him that I took the card and turned it into a HATE card. I gave it to him to let him know how angry I was and didn't care how he would feel. I must have hurt him real bad. Who would want a daughter who gives a Dad a hate letter?

I always have regrets whenever I think of my Dad. If he's only alive and knew me as what I am now - not a rebel but a good child. If only we had a chance to do a Father-Daughter talk. If only I can turn back the hands of time.

Well, it's too late for me to say all these. He won't be able to hear nor see me anymore. But it's not yet late for you who's Dad is still alive. Give him gifts that he deserve may it be from Personal Creations gifts for Father's Day or from the shopping malls. Give him a hug and tell him that you love him before it's too late. Don't live life with regrets.

Happy Father's Day to you, Tatay... Same goes to all the Fathers out there.

11 years na rin pala, Bang. Tagal na! Lots of "if onlys". If only he's alive today, he will be one proud Dad of how you've turned out to be.

Hugs!
