Para sa iyo Chubby Feet


his first haircut

Noong October 23, nagone-year old na ang anak ko, WAKANASUSHA, ang bilis ng panahon, kinakabahan baka bukas e naghihingi na ng pang-gimik sa akin ito, hahahaha! Umuwi kami ng PI para i-celebrate ang knayang birthday with family and friends. I’ll post the pictures soon.

I came across this prayer in one of the FB status update, and it was really touching. I will forever remember this prayer and I hope that my son will also live with it.


A Prayer For My Son

This is one of my favorite things ever written. Gen. Douglas MacArthur wrote this prayer for his son.

A Prayer For My Son

Build me a son, O Lord, who will be strong enough to know when he is weak, and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid; one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat, and humble and gentle in victory.

Build me a son whose wishes will not take the place of deeds; a son who will know Thee — and that to know himself is the foundation stone of knowledge.

Lead him, I pray, not in the path of ease and comfort, but under the stress and spur of difficulties and challenge. Here let him learn to stand up in the storm; here let him learn compassion for those who fail.

Build me a son whose heart will be clear, whose goals will be high; a son who will master himself before he seeks to master other men; one who will reach into the future, yet never forget the past.

And after all these things are his, give him, I pray, enough of a sense of humor, so that he may always be serious, yet never take himself too seriously. Give him humility, so that he may always remember the simplicity of true greatness, the open mind of true wisdom, and the meekness of true strength.

Then I, his father, will dare to whisper, “I have not lived in vain.”
