I keep thinking of this guy and his life of rubber. I wonder what made him decide to stay in Manila and work there instead of heading overseas like so many other fathers I’ve heard about. Just before Christmas, a young friend told me her Dad was returning from his job overseas to celebrate with them. The family was waiting with eager anticipation...and a little trepidation. What would it be like to have Dad back? It had been so long. My heart broke for her.
I can understand why so many head overseas for work and this is not a post that digs at that decision. This post is just a nod to the Vulcaniser, who’s working hard with his sons at his side. Your money may be meagre, sir, but your investment in those boys will reach on into future generations. Don’t discount the influence you’re having on them each day. You are moulding and shaping more than just rubber.
