Your papa and I have always seen you as both a daring and a sweet little girl. Even your Ama and Angkong who were only here for three weeks were so amazed by your no fear attempts to perform several tasks that were presented to you. And of course, your sweetness melted their hearts. It melts ours every passing day sweetie.
We realized that your DARING trait could have come from your 1st 7 days spent in the hospital, which were hourly dose of injections due to tests and medication. And of course, you bravely faced your 3 major surgeries in the 1st 10 months of your life. Thank God for his protection that was ever available… Because of those experiences, we believe it made your brave enough to face life. Facing those kinds of pain at a very tender age made you aware that life isn’t easy and you really had to fight to survive. You are a fighter my dear.
Now for the SWEET side of you… Aside from the fact that you’ve learned from the sweetest mom (ehem, ehem), I believe it’s also because of the love and care you’ve received from people like Ama, Angkong and other family and friends who showered you with so much. Although we miss most of them now that we’re far away from them, God has provided us with friends who have helped us shower you and your ahia love and affection.
You like it very much when you ahia popo’s you… Then he’ll end up saying, ” You’re so heavy Mei.”
That’s ate Asley, she’s 11… They only came here to visit but you both had a wonderful time when we went shopping. She carried you and played with you so I can fit my clothes 🙂 She got really tired that even if she doesn’t take afternoon naps, she did that day! 🙂
So there you go my little one… I pray that you’ll always remain to be brave (daring) and sweet as you grow one day at a time.
I love you sweetheart!
