Our girls were sick for father’s day, but that didn’t deter us from celebrating and giving Perze his gifts. Both Zi and Em gave him presents after I came home from church. We had to take turns fulfilling some ministry responsibilities because the two girls stayed home to rest.
Tay, happy father’s day. One day, your children will realize everything you’ve sacrificed for them. I’ve seen you change throughout our seasons together, and I am proud of who you’ve become, fulfilling the role of a loving, nurturing and protective dad. Our family is SO blessed by you.
Happy Father’s Day also to Papa, Tatay, & KSam- who are great fathers who continually reach the bar. We love you.
