It’s not that I am losing hope; I mean I know my youngest daughter is full of surprises good or bad, bad or good. But honestly, I didn’t know she will receive an academic award during her Moving Up day. I asked my 2 sisters to accompany Faith at the venue since I could not attend the ceremony and when I got there, I was surprised when I found she had a silver award. I congratulate her right away when she saw me in the back. But she was too busy to respond, she said she needs to get the portfolio from her teacher and the school newspaper.
I know Faith can surpass my expectation, it is just that I don’t expect too much it is because I want her to enjoy her school without feeling any pressure. But she did it, she just did it! And too bad I wasn’t there to put the medal on her, work sometimes sucks especially during this very important event but I know I can’t stop I need to work hard for them, for my family.
Faith is grinning so wide while eating her lunch, she felt so proud that she was able to make it although she said she wanted to get the topnotch, I answered “As long as you enjoy what you are doing, dream big”. Although I wish of her to get to the top but I don’t pressure her because I know and I am sure that instead of her being inspired she might end up affecting her negatively.
So we are taking it slowly but surely. As long as we were able to study in Filipino and Sibika, everything will turn out fair.
