I idolize this friend because…

Jed has this gift of connecting easily with people and if he continues to use it well, I’m sure that he can bless many as he has blessed me. He has taught me how sometimes we need to loosen up in life and has made me appreciate my father even more. We both have grown up ‘fatherless’ (my father works afar, separated from him for more than a decade and his passed away at his early age). I know how hard it is growing and spending your life without your father physically present by your side. Kaya, mas bilib ako dito sa taong ito on how he has been taking this situation well.   

My life message:

I’m sure maraming ganap sayo this year and the years to come after. So, may you allow no fear to prevent you from enjoying these moments/opportunities in your life.
