I was out having some after work "happy hour" with some friends with the absence of my lovely wife and after not long enjoying myself,my phone rang..................
"Papa, what time are you coming back ?" it was from Jovial (my eldest) i felt kind of agitated, here i was enjoying myself, karaoking and chatting away but was being rushed by Jovial, i rudely replied,"would be back shortly" then abruptly i hanged up.
My phone rang again after about an hour from the last call from Jovial," Papa, just now you said you'd be back a short while but now it's already 9.30 already and you are not back yet." again with my frutrated voice i said," i am here with friends and you don't call me again, i would be back early,ok" again i hanged up.
After hanging up on him, i felt bad and i told my friends that i needed to go back already. On the way back, i was asking myself, wasn't it a promise to my two sons that i would spend more time with them in the evening, wasn't it a promise that i made to them to talk to them before their bed time, weren't those my promises ? i asked myself.
When i finally reached home about 9.55 pm, Jovial and Marvell came out from their bed room and charged towards me, giving me a bear hug and telling me." Papa, we miss you lah" then i kissed Jovial on the forehead i said this to him," Thank Jo, i am sorry for sounding angry at you and i know that you love me"
I know probably one day in a not distant future, my two boys will outgrow me in no time, therefore i rather enjoy this beautiful moment of spending time with them now but then again i am sanguine that my two boys shall always remain as loving and caring towards their papa as they are now always
Have a great weekend guys and spend more time with the family..............God Bless.
P/S : Don't let it slip away,,,,,,i mean time spending with the family
