- A responsible head of the family would always think of his family first before his personal needs
- A KAMI follower shared his struggles as an Overseas Filipino Worker
- He values his family more than anything and wishes to save enough money so he won't have to work away from them
Jayson Mendoza, a 34-year-old dad tries hard to overcome his feelings of yearning to be with his family.
The responsible father had been working abroad for 2 years already and wishes to save enough money for a business so he won't have to go over the same struggle of living away from his loved ones.
Jayson also said he did not want to miss being with his daughter while she is growing up.
Although he believes he can not earn as much money in the Philippines as he is earning right now, he still believes no amount of money can buy the happiness and time spent with the family.
He wrote, "Actually kaya lang nmn aq nandito para makapag ipon ng sapat na puhunan para makapag negosyo sa Pinas, nung nasa Pinas aq may trabaho naman aq kaya lang sapat lang para sa pang araw araw namin, nakakapagod kc paulit ulit lang, naisip q pano q kaya matutustusan ung anak q pag nag college na xa? Kaya kahit mahirap mawalay sa pamilya q tiistiis muna... pero sobrang Hirap ng d q kasama ang mag ina q... oo d q kikitain sa Pinas ung kinikita q d2 kahit dalawa pa Kami ng asawa qng nagttrabaho sa Pinas, Pero mas d kayang tumbasan ung magkakasama kayo ng pamilya mo kaysa sa perang kinikita mo d2..
Mag ttwo years plng po aq dito, pero hangang 12yrs po d2 pwdeng magstay,
Tatapusin q lang po ung 3yrs tapos d na po aq babalik, gusto q kasi makasama anak q habang syay nagdadalaga. Kung magtatagal aq d2 d q na mababalik ung panahon na d q cla kasama.
Gusto q Kc nandun aq sa mga achievements or problems na pwdeng maranasan nila. Basta sa pamilya lahat nmn tau cla ang kahinaan at kalakasan.
Para sa LDR pagmamahal at respesto sa isat isa para d masira ang pamilya."
Jayson is just one of our super dads who would always put his family first.
KAMI salutes every OFW for the selfless sacrifices they make for their family.
May your hard work pay off in God's perfect time.
