Kissed and said goodbye................

Jovial came into my room early this morning about 6 am, softly he said,"Papa, good morning, i am leaving for my Boys Bridage camp now" I was still like half awake, half sleeping and i went "ha, ok".

Then he bent down a little, stretching his head towards my cheek and gave me a kiss on my cheek and gave it a gentle pat and saying i love you papa, then i said to him" go and enjoy yourself and see you back on Thursday,ya"

Jovial can sometimes be so cocky and nonchalant towards us(well, i guess this is what a normal 14 year old boy would behave) but every time when he shows his affection, tender loving care and warmth towards us, it really makes us feel so proud.

Just like this morning, the kiss, the saying of "I love you, papa" and even the good morning ,those were nice feelings that would linger a little longer as far as i am concerned.

I really have a small family, just the four of us and it is really the duty and the onus of me and my lovely wife to cultivate the sense of "familyness", the bonding and the love to one another,

Sometimes i do get very upset with Jovial when he subtly bullying his little bro and calling him non pleasant names but every time when i ask him, does he really love his brother, he will always says,he does.

When we take turn to pray at night, either Marvell or Jovial will always ask the Good Lord to bless, to protect all of us in the family and they do really make me proud.

P/S : I love this family of mine..............

  6. Boys...teenage years, can be more complicated - like a kite on a very delicate string - once broken, it's gone forever. Have to tread softly and carefully - no favouritism now, all must be equal!

    P.S.
    Aiyor...your anak so good, will get up before you and go off on his own like that. Most parents will have to get everything ready for them, drag them out of bed and chauffeur them to the place. Lucky you!

  12. That is so sweet. Can see you and your teenage son relationship is good. I don't think I would to this to my beloved mother when I was 14yo, even I'm already adulthood now. I guess that is the difference of closed minded family.

  16. Hi Eugene, very heartwarming. Glad to read you have a loving family.
    It's all because of Papa and Mama.
    Its the way how parent guide their kids, they benefit the good or not so good.

    In your case, they'll be responsible adults when they grow up.
    Good for you, Eugene...best regards.
    Lee.
