It was morning and we were all rushing to go to work. We were also rushing David so he could dress up and be ready for school.
In the midst of the stressful morning rush and just thinking about beating the awful EDSA morning traffic, David handed us this:
I paused to soak in the goodness that was in these pages. I loved how he drew us all holding hands. My favorite part is that he put Noah between me and him. It just screams “protective kuya!!!” and I loveeee it.
I was so busy about keeping time that I forgot to make time with David. Our kuya who’s growing up so fast is a walking, breathing reminder of why I should slow down. Why I should turn off the blackberry so that I could fly planes with him or do footraces with him in the backyard. It’s so easy to choose work over the family and it’s harder to get back the time I lost with him. Guilt is a shadow that hangs over me constantly. I want to get rid of it period. (Coach Pia help me!)
Dan called dibs on displaying the card on his workstation. I took pics of the card and made the family pic my screen saver. Our kuya who just turned 5 has always surprised us with how sweet and thoughtful he really is. He still is every bit a stubborn 5-year old who is a hurricane that leaves his room in a mess always. But now and then he churns up these sweet little nuggets that makes me feel that maybe I’m doing alright with this whole motherhood thing.
