Eye Protector

          Its summer time, everybody seems to be looking forward for a deep. Get your swimsuit.  You cannot enjoy the day because of scorching heat and gleam of the sunrays. So better have eye protector.
           My kids decided to buy some cool sun glasses. They went to a store and they found these colourful ones. They choose these because it is the fashion and everybody in the school uses it. They thought it would really protect them from the light. For a start they struggle about it. I know they don’t mind. They enjoy wearing it.
           As I was watching them with their new found sunglasses? I couldn’t help but ask. How sure you are that it really protects your eyes? So I tried to put it on. For me it doesn’t fit. I mean the lens. I am using a graded eye glasses already. So it makes my eyes watery. It does protect but not to the maximum level.
           We continue to enjoy the rest of the day with a glee on our face against the gleam of the sun. I continue to enjoy them as they continue to switch.

So long Tatay Pete..We will surely miss you..

    Its been a long a tiring thirteen nights and day for all of us. We lost our very own father "Tatay Pete".We where expectant with the event but until now I am still holding on that he is here with me.He was diagnosed with stage 4 urinary bladder. Its really shocking . I know he is at peace with the Lord.
       I was amazed as the news spread to every relatives, friends,and even former co workers and neighbors. People who visited seems to be my first time to meet. They told many great works where my father have done.Good deeds behind compare. Lessons learned. The laughter they shared during their acquaintances. My father is  in indeed have all the good qualities. Sometimes I misunderstood him. I may felt bitter and bad.
        As  I reflected in all his good qualities. I stand at wonder. That's why my father spent his 89 years in the world. His legacy will go on. That even on his last night, people flock just to see him and witness his last wake. It so happened that it was my brothers 37th birthday. Yet we celebrated it with some cakes and some food for everyone to enjoy.
        Since my father is  a  WW II veteran , we gave him the 21 gun salute. The soldiers gave the first shot  which startled me to cry. I couldn't help it . It seems that it is the end of him. A  sign for me to start my year with out having a Tatay by my side. Right now, I am having some hopes and wishes that all my dreams and tatay's dream for us will be fulfilled in due time.
         So long Jolly JUPITER. We will surely miss you.
