Daddy's 64th Birthday

Last Monday, (August 30, 2010), my mom and I put together a small thanksgiving with relatives and closest friends to celebrate my father's 64th birthday.

We consider it special because this year we almost lost the head of our family due to respiratory failure last May. Within a short period of time from May until August there was a great improvement in his health. Our gratitude to the doctors who supervised his health and recovery.

With that kind of experience in our family there are few things that I have realized. One is that nothing is impossible with God. Prayers can indeed move mountains. Many of our family members and friends joined together in prayer. I think that was one significant factor to his recovery. Second is "love is all that matters". Prayers together with the love showered to us by the people around us made the struggle a little lighter to carry. Everyday counts now to say I love you to the people we care about because in a brink of time the people that we love the most may be gone; and no matter how we want to express our love for them it may be too late. Our sincerest gratitude to all of you. Lastly, ARK (act of random kindness) just like in the movie it is important if we have our simple act or random kindness to people even with strangers. During our challenging moments, people showered us with random act of kindness from the people who helped us to take my dad to hospital, to the nurses, doctors and crew in the hospital,their kindness even the smallest things were helpful to my mom and I.

Thank you to everybody who shared this especial day with our family. May God bess you and your family always! :)
