I would like to thank Mommy Chris for bringing up this week’s theme. If not for this, we won’t be aware how RJ feels about her dad working so hard. I asked her to write a letter for Daddy and so she wrote this…
I am very sorry because I have been a bad girl to you. Sorry because I am giving you hard work. I am guilty for what I have done to you. I thank God for giving me kind, loving, caring Daddy. I love you very much!!! Mwaaah…
Oh my, she thinks Daddy is working hard for her and she feels guilty about it. So as soon as I read her letter, I talked to her. I told her that sometimes she’s “makulit” but she is not bad. I explained to her that Daddy is working hard not for her alone but because he wants us to live decently. Then I hugged her and kissed her.
RJ is chatty but we did not know that she has this feeling inside. Again, thank you very much Mommy Chris! From now on, I will ask RJ to write letters for us more often. Sometimes our kids have something in mind that we do not know and helping them to express their feelings and listening to them can ease what they feel and erase those guilts.
