Dear Mama,

Good morning. It's 8:00 a.m., Edgar and Angel are still sleeping. It's Saturday so they do not need to get up early, Mama. I'm glad the rain has stopped, I hope it stays this way for the rest of the weekend, Mama. Ralph is still in Makati. They do not have work yesterday because you know it easily floods there when there's a heavy rain. I was able to talk to him yesterday and he's doing fine, Mama.

I am not yet sure what will happen to me, Mama. No confirmation yet of my promotion and still no calls from those that I have applied for. My friends have all left and I am the only left in our company. I am not really excited about the promotion, but it's the best I can have right now. Seems like nobody really like me. My friends have all left me. Oh well, what else is new, right?

Anyway, I will try to do some cleaning up today, Mama. I am hoping to get the house Christmas-ready. September is almost over and I still haven't done anything. The house needs serious cleaning. I wish the kids would volunteer to help, or at least minimize their clutters.

Well, that will be all for now, Mama. Take care of yourself. I miss you, Mama.

I love you.

Dear Mama,

Edgar did great today! He did not win nor get any place, but he did great nonetheless Mama. He sang his piece beautifully. I'm sure if you were watching earlier, you were smiling from heaven and beaming with pride at our son. He is a revelation, Mama. I always knew he can sing, but I am surprised of the confidence he displayed. He has changed a lot, Mama. I wish he would continue it. He is really challenging himself lately, Mama.

That is all really got to say for now, Mama. I wish you were watching with us this afternoon. I miss you, Mama.

I love you.

Dear Mama,

Today, Ralph turns 22. Last night, he treated us to a buffet dinner, Mama. We went out late because we waited for Edgar to come. It was a nice dinner, Mama. We were able to bond and celebrate his birthday. His girlfriend was also with us to celebrate. They will be going back to Makati today. I hope it will stop raining this morning so they can travel safely.

Edgar came from Baguio. He arrived at 7 p.m. yesterday. He brought home a lot of things, Mama. I was surprised because I know they only a small allowance for the conference. I guess they were able to find cheap vendors there.

Angel was upset yesterday. We went to get her report card, she was already expecting failing grades on some subjects but she was upset because of the warning letter she got for her absences. She said all her absences have excuse letters and warning letters are given to those without any letters. She said she'll talk to her adviser on Monday. Later, she became calm and said she'll just do everything to make up on her tests and prove that she does not deserve that letter and those grades. Of course, she took it out on the buffet dinner in the evening, Mama.

Well, I guess that's it for now, Mama. I hope my letters are not bothering. I wish you were with us last night. I miss you, Mama. Take care of yourself.

I love you.

Dear Mama,

I submitted my letter of intent this afternoon for the position of the Team Leader. I don't know, Mama. I'm still not sure of my decision. I wish you were here, things like this would be easy if only you're here... if only I could hold hands.

I miss you, Mama.

Dear Mama,

Hi! How are you doing, Mama? I hope you're doing okay. Angel just went inside her room to sleep. It's already 10:20 p.m. Haven't heard from the 2 boys this day, one is in Baguio while the other is in Makati.

If you'll ask me, I'm doing okay, Mama. Struggling a little bit, but nonetheless okay. Guess what, Mama? Looks I will be applying for promotion after all. I was not really interested because I have other plans, but the person to whom I gave way to for the position suddenly resigned, and there's nobody left qualified other than me. I guess I will be leading a team again, Mama. I guess that will do good for the meantime. It's inevitable, I guess.

I wish you're here in times like this, Mama. I could really use your voice, your opinion... your encouragement.

Anyway, that will be all for now, Mama. Take care of yourself. I really miss you, Mama.

I love you.


Daddy

Dear Mama,

Edgar is in Baguio right now. He left this noon with his co-Pioneer members. I pray he'll be safe there, Mama. He said there won't be any problems with him being for a few days. They will stay there until Saturday morning, Mama.

Next week will be his singing competition and he has only a few days to prepare. I guess it's not really his priority, Mama. But I'm sure he will still do good during the show next week.

Angel is sleeping now. I will be sleeping after I finish this letter, Mama. I just want to update you on the kids. Take care of yourself, Mama. I miss you.

I love you.


Daddy

Dear Mama,

I am on leave today. I did not work because I needed to go to school to have another promissory note approved. Next week will be Angel's unit test and so I needed to get her permit. Since I do not have the money to pay for the tuition fees, I had to resort to promissory note... again. I think that is how it will be for a long time, or at least until the kids finish their schooling. Oh well, I guess it's a way of life, Mama.

You know what, Mama? While I was in school this morning, I looked at the bulletin board because Angel said Edgar has a picture posted there. True enough, I saw his picture holding a mike alongside pictures of other students from different colleges. Remember I told you he will be joining a singing contest this month? It will be next week, Mama! On the 18th of September to be exact. It will be held at the SM City Clark and Edgar will be representing the college of engineering.

Suddenly, I became nervous for our son, Mama. I know he can do it, he has the talents. But he never took his talents seriously and it will be his first time to join a competition as a solo act. I hope he will enjoy this experience, Mama and grow from it. I'm sure glad he got your singing voice, Mama.

About Ralph, he is interested in working here in Angeles City. I hope he pursues it so that he can stay home and I can look after him. I never asked him to, it's just that most of his officemates have applied in our company and he became curious. I also gave him other options aside from our company, Mama. We will be discussing it when he goes home this weekend, which is his birthday.

As for me, I'm still proofreading my book Plethora. I hope I can finalize it this week so I can already have it processed. It will be nice if I can publish it this week, Mama. It has been long overdue. Pray for me, Mama.

Well, I guess that will be all for now, Mama. Sorry for writing you another long letter. I hope you're doing well. Take care of yourself, Mama. I really miss you.

I love you, Mama.

Dear Mama,

I just wish I can hug you right now. Nothing's wrong, Mama. It's just that I feel so down today. I wish you were here. I miss you, Mama.

I love you.
