One less gift to wrap...

This afternoon, I wrapped my Christmas gifts for the kids. Somehow I managed to get some funds so I can buy them a little something to celebrate the occasion. At least they would have something to open on Christmas day.

Used to be that I was happy wrapping expensive gifts for my kids. I never hold myself spending for them. I want to give them the best that I can give, no matter what the price. If I am short on funds then, getting a loan was easy.

But those were the days. Today is already different.

Still, I was happy as I was wrapping the gifts this afternoon, even if they were not even half of what I used to give to them.

But after I finished wrapping, I felt a sting... something seems to be not right... something's lacking...

It didn't take long for me to realize what was it...

I just realized, there is one less gift to wrap this year...

and it didn't feel good...

ok lang yan Mr. Roy, kahit maliit lang ma receive nila atleast meron. For sure they'll understand sa mga nagdaan...

Kami nga lumaking hindi man lang nakaranas ni kahit isang regalo tuwing pasko kasi nga walang wala yong parents namin..

P.S thank you po sa pagdaan sa blog ko. Maligayang Pasko sa inyong lahat dyan!

ang mahalaga naipakita mo na palagi mo silang naaalala maiintindihan na nila yun.lumaki kaming wala kahit hopia na handa sa pasko hehe pero naaapreciate namin yung napkaliliit na bagay na dumarating,...
di gaya ngayon na i gave everything to my son, lahat ng bagay na wala ang ibang bata pero napansin ko di rin pala maganda, nawala na yung appreciation parang wala lang parang napaka ordinary nalang sa kanila,diko na makita yung excitement sa mga mata nila.
