Question of the Day: Who do you live with?

Right now, I live with my father. Although, I am not sure until I’d get to live with him as my sister’s petition of him is already underway.

So, I am making the most out of the time we have together. Dine out and watch movies as much as my budget would allow. Go somewhere we haven’t been, if my free time would permit it.

He is one of my best friends in the world. Also, the most supportive father. He will actually run to the nearest grocery store to buy things I need in the kitchen that I, typical me, forgot to buy earlier that day when we went grocery shopping.

I am happy that someday soon he and my mother will be physically together again and he’d get to see his grandchildren. But I am also sad that he might leave me soon. Bittersweet. Mixed feelings.

I will surely miss the times we spent together. Having fun. Arguing. Or simply watching TV together.

He is indeed the pillar in my life.

Question of the day: Who is your hero?

I bought the Q and A a Day book earlier today then met with my father for dinner.  As I was sitting across from him, I decided to unwrap my book and took a peek at the question intended for today.

Imagine my surprise when it turned out to be one of the easiest questions that anyone can ask me.  And I just thought, ‘Well, isn’t this apt?’.

Just when I am about to embark on another project I am asked who my hero is.  The answer is the simplest answer one on earth.

I have and will always have just one answer to this question: my Father.

Papa has always been there for me, as I was growing up and even now that I am an adult.  And I know that he will be there for me as long as he can or is allowed to be.

A little background, my Mother is with my sister (and her family) in California while my other sister is in Canada.  So, basically, it’s just my Father and me here in the Philippines.

Since it’s just the two of us and he is practically retired already, he decided to take on the role of father, mother, and personal assistant.

Everyday he will wake up early to give my car a quick cleaning and prepare my water bottle.  And in the early evenings, he will prepare our supper.  In between those times, he will clean the house and whatever else needs to be done in our humble abode.

He also does errands for me when I need to have a few things done but don’t have the time to do them.  Plus, whenever I feel like going out to dinner and none of my friends are available, my Father is always there to keep me company.

So, yes, my Father is my hero and he will always hold that role in my life.  No guy can ever take his place.

Hmmm… Maybe that’s why I am still single.  Haha!!!
