A Letter to Daddy:
For as long as I can remember, you’ve carried me on your shoulders as we watched the fireworks and welcomed each year. But these past few months, it seems that you’ve taken not only me but the whole world on your shoulders.
We spent countless hours writing our new year’s resolutions and our dreams for the next decade. But in just one night, everything changed. People started getting sick, and we had to stay at home. At first, it was fun — classes were suspended. We played games. And I got to stay up all night watching my favorite shows. But after a while, reality snuck upon us. We stopped playing games, you focused on work, and I was stuck in my room doing nothing.
I know it has been tough. You seem to have countless problems. How to put food on the table? How to pay the bills? How to keep or find a new job? I know it may seem like you’re alone in this battle, but remember that you always have us.
Thank you for everything you do. Thank you for bearing the burden. But it’s time that we step up.
This father’s day, we want to do something different.
I know you always rant about how much I use my phone, but this time, I want to use what I know to help you.
- I’ll teach you how to use online delivery apps to send your packages.
- I’ll help you sell products online by advertising it on social media.
- I’ll teach you about the Viber communities where you can sell your products.
- I’ll help you create Facebook and Instagram accounts for your business.
- I’ll start an Instagram store where I’ll sell baked goods to help earn a little more money.
- I’ll take on more responsibility at home. I’ll help clean, cook, and do the dishes. I’ll also take charge of ordering our groceries.
- I’ll help and guide my younger siblings in their online classes.
- I’ll teach you how to use contactless payments to pay our utilities online.
Everything is weird. Nothing is the same. We all have to adjust. But whatever happens, we’ll deal with it as a family.
We love you, daddy!
