In the eyes of children-A A +A
Saturday, September 8, 2012
IN our culture, the word “apostolate” has taken on a new meaning: not the spread of a religion or doctrine but the spread of a parent’s love and care to their children’s children. Are their loving care and attention appreciated? We asked some kids and these are what they have to say.
From these much loved grandchildren, it appears that the “apostolate” of grandparents are much appreciated and the love reciprocated. To all the Lolos and Lolas out there, happy grandparents day! Bask in the knowledge that your grandchildren do love you.
Safia Manguerra Luna
six years old
A grade one pupil at Childlink Learning Center: “I like my Lola because she tucks me to bed. She reads to me so I can go to sleep. She gives me good morning hugs and she drops me to school very often. When I get home from school, sometimes she plays with me. She is my favorite Lolly.” (“Lolly” is Terry E. Manguerra.)
Miguel Lorenzo C. Rubia
10 years old
A grade four pupil at Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu: “My grandparents love us so much. We are always welcome in their home. They are full of surprises which give us a lot of joy and happiness.” (His grandparents are Salvacion Rubia and Eliseo and Nunilon Caballero.)
Thea N. Emia

“My brothers, Maco and Tomtom, and I love our Mommyla because she always helps us whenever we need something important. She is always there for us. We always enjoy every minute with her. She always brings us to places we haven’t been to. We will take care of you when you really get old, Mommyla. We love you so much!” (Mommyla is Bel Navascues.)
