"Children are not just little adults. They go through typical characteristics of growth - intellectually, emotionally, and socially—on their way to becoming adults."

Father and Son

by Unknown | 10:41 AM in |

My dad honestly confessed to me that he never carried me when I was still a baby. That is why seeing my husband so fond of my baby and even taught me how to change Aizen's diapers, makes me appreciate his efforts to be a great dad for Ahgi. Not a lot of guys that are willing to goof around to the extent of looking a lot silly and foolish, but he's more than willing to those things for our baby's thrills. A kid at heart...... but a most responsible man.

A Child's Hug
a poem by Salvador Galvez

There are times when life overwhelms us.
We talk and try to resolve our problems.
We seek the All Mighty's Mercy.
From the helpless we ask, they deem us crazy.
We run around in circles to the point of dejavue.
When we finish the round we start over again.
While sitting watching closely, a child wants to be wooed.
We have no time for childish things worry is in our brain.

Gentle tugs we most surely ignore.
While the little one is waiting to adore.
Some times the little tugs free us from our entangled world.
In the huge eyes our worries dissolve into a smile unfurled.

Longingly the child invites to be embraced.
We of instinct respond as though we are giving.
If a child is Heaven sent, then we are not giving but receiving.
It is a child's hug that permeates our soul and thus we are graced.

    Nice photos. Well, I am not that fortunate to have my father beside me when I was a new born child :(

    But he sees to it to be home whenever I celebrate my birthday.

    But he was never there during my high school graduation. God had to take him away from me. I miss my father.

    Lucky Aizen :)

    You're still luckier than I am Madz. My father weren't there from the day I was born and at any times of my life, except maybe in his thought :D

    Though, the difference is, me and my father can still catch up... I think we're catching up already, somehow!

    Yeah, do catch up. It's never too late.

    I think I brought out a topic a lot of people could relate to...one way or another. Good or bad experience with our dads, we're here because of them. God is soooo good.
