The position is still new with me but I know I could be the best. A student because I'm still young and I come to school to learn and discover things that I would need to know when the time comes that I need be apart from my family and start a new life. A great house man because whenever my mom would leave the house and entrust me the security of our house, she knows that I would take care of the house. She thinks that I'm a right house man because I'm independent, dependable and trust worthy. And finally a son because we all know that we are the Children of God and God has given me to my mom for her to have a helper and a man that would make her happy in times of sorrow.

My mom experience home sick aboard because she thinks of her family left here in the Philippines. But inspite of these problems each member of our family experience, we still care for each other. We pray together to God that He may guide us and for us to repel the loneliness that each member of our family experience because my future dad and I are separated form my mother because she's there abroad to work. But we believe that there will come a time that soon, our family would be united again and we will live a happy life enjoying the prescence of each member.
14: Pictures | Pictures are representations of happiness, sadness, delight, sorrow, and pain. But for my family, pictures represents bondage, It represents happiness and memories. Pictures are like a brain that stores up and saves memories so that when the future years comes, we would be able to cherish and appreciate the beautiful memories of the past. Pictures also tells us that we need to cherish the moments that we are with our loved ones because memories are sometimes like papers that when burned, it turns into nothing and becomes nothing like nothing happened at all.
15: So whether you have your baby picture, family picture, with-peers pictures, wacky pictures or your formal pictures, these pictures holds memories. Memories that can make you update and remember the good and bad things that happened in the past. And these memories of the past would give us and clear picture of the lessons that we have learned from it and be able to face the future without fear and anxiety. For family, its a way to see they are strong and telling to the whole that they are ready to face the hardships and joys as a strong. united family.
