August has been a blessed month for me and my loved ones.
There were a lot of birthday celebrants in our family. My father's birthday was last August 13, my cousin Leslie's birthday was last August 18 and my youngest brother's birthday was last August 24. The whole family celebrated their birthdays at Something's Fishy in Eastwood City, Libis.
August afforded me and my loved ones a lot of bonding time together because of the many holidays celebrated this month. Most of the holidays were either celebrated on the Friday or the Monday, so there's a long weekend rest.
But the biggest blessing was the Gawad President Manuel L. Quezon "Natatanging Ama " Nomination my father had under the socio-religious category.
The Gawad President Manuel L. Quezon "Natatanging Ama," is an award given by the Quezon City Goverment under Vice Mayor Herbert Bautista in recognition for the contribution of outstanding fathers in the Quezon City.
The awarding ceremony was held last August 28, 2009 at the Bahay ng Alumni, U.P. Campus, Diliman , Quezon City.
Even if my father did not win the award, the most important thing is to be recognized for the services he rendered in our parish and our community.
And wow, it's the first day of September already. A few months from now and we'll be celebrating Christmas.
Well, I hope and wish everyone a happy a blessed new month for all of us.
