This was supposed to be a post to say that my daughter and middle son are finally well and are already going to school... and how I was looking forward to a late Father's Day celebration this weekend.

I even thought it was perfect timing since Transformers 2 is showing.

but I have to pass one more test...

Last night, while I was drafting my original post, my eldest son came home from school. He said he wasn't feeling well, especially while he was still in school. He slept after having his dinner.

At around 1AM, I heard him calling. He asked for medicine because he has a headache, and he was feeling cold. I checked him, he has fever.

Now, he's in bed complaining of various pains in his body.

This isn't new to me. The exact thing happened last year - first it was Edgar, and then Angel, and finally Ralph.

Ralph's sickness came a little late this time, but it didn't fail.


Am I amiss in my fatherly duties? Don't I know how to take care of my kids?


You might say I'm making a big fuzz out of this. Maybe I do. But, shouldn't I? If you were in my place, wouldn't you?

I thought so. That's easy for you to say.

When you're on the outside looking in, wisdom is easy to deliver, but unless on your on someone else's shoes, and understand everything that's happening...

No Roy, the situation is the same whether you are on the outside looking in or on the inside sweating it out. Life is like that. We are not living in a rose garden and we will always have our shares of trials and testings. We have to be strong and courageous for the people we love. God will never give us the success we crave for on a silver platter. He is teaching us His ways. Never feel that you are victimized by fate. We go through the same ordeals and trials. It's only our attitudes that make the difference. Cast all your cares to the Lord and He will lift you up and carry your burden for you. Sorry for the unsolicited advices Roy but I feel you really need them. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.
