Happy Birthday, Dad !

Thursday, March 12, 2009


I have a big family so it seems like every month, there’s a birthday celebration.
Every month is filled with greetings of love and grace,
Every month is filled with hugs and kisses,
Every month is another month that fills our photo books and lasting memories.

Tradition – something that grows with the family every day.
Waking up the birthday celebrant
To a candle-lit pastry-cake
While we all sing “Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you...”Starts his/her day with a smile, big hugs, lots of love and kisses.




On the 14th, my Dad will be celebrating his 77th birthday.

We won’t be with him to personally sing him “Happy Birthday”,We’ll miss everyone getting together in this special day;
We’ll miss Papa’s BBQ and Mama’s pansit;
But most of all we will miss giving Dad big hugs and personal happy birthday wishes.

“A man can be a father but it takes a special person to be a Dad” - ProverbsYou gave us a home, you gave us each other;
You dream big for us, you hope for our greatness;
You forgive our shortcomings, you wish us the best;

You’ve nurtured all your grandchildren,
You even changed all their diapers.
You patiently marinated that famous BBQ of yours,
You put them in a stick – one cube at a time!

You cooked the best “tinola”,
You made the chicken bones seem like chocolate,
You sometimes drive us insane
You just love us dearly – as always.

Our family has grown,
Unconventional as it seems,
Separated yet connected
Together we will always be – related to you!


Dad, Papa – We love you .
Happy Birthday!

  4. From Craig, your smartest and most handsome son-in-law... I hope your 77th Bday is the best. You have good numbers in your favor, i.e. 77 on 3/14 which adds to 27. Lotsa 7's goin on there, and that's good. I hope you succeed in your efforts to reclaim your ancestral lands, remain happy with the beautiful Carmelita, and engage in the critical politics of the day. You're looking good, keepin' trim and stayin' strong. Happy Bday Dad. Love Craig.

  8. Dear Papa,
    Happy Birthday old man! I hope that it's a great one. I wish that we were all together for your birthday; I know that someday it will be like that again. I miss you and your chicken adobo (ma doesn't make it as well as you do). Enjoy your birthday!
    Love,
    Nicole

    PS- Remember when you were watching me when I was little and you couldn't find me and you called the cops only to find me hiding with my stuffed animals?
