PASASALAMAT KAY TATAY (A Letter of Gratitude to Fathers)

Tatay, Daddy, Papa, Ama,

There are different ways we call you, but there is not enough words we can describe how grateful we are to you.

Thank you for being our role model, for showing us how to really stand up for the family. Your leadership and strong will is a testament of how you love us truly.

You spent countless hours working, at some point you needed to be away just to be able to ensure that we have more than enough.

Here’s to let you know that even if we are miles away from each other, we feel your presence very close to us, here in our hearts, we feel your great love.

Thank you for raising with us values that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. More than words, We know that the best way to honor you is to be kind, respectful, compassionate; to live with dignity and integrity like how you taught us to be.

Salamat sa lahat ‘Tay!

Even if we don’t express this often as we should, we love you beyond words and beyond measure.
