A Father's promise are sacred and it affects everything in the life of the family.
About a year ago, I have made a promise to my 3 children that when they achieve their academic targets in 2016, I will take them for a trip to Japan. Nothing new there except that it was another promise that I have made to them over the 15 years of our family life and frankly I have yet to fulfill any of it yet.
My financial situation have been at its lowest due to some bad investments that is putting me in a head on collision with my creditors. At time of writing,I am saddled with close to $200000 in debt which I am struggling to cope in monthly payments.Although my wife and I are both working, we barely make ends meet every month with meeting all the usual family bills and loans payments on top of putting some food on the table. Honestly it is still manageable, however we have not been able to save any money for the trip. Basically every cent we earn are used up just to cover monthly expenses and basic needs.
This time around I am almost desperate as not to break this one promise I made to my kids. They have achieve their academic targets, we'll above my expectations. My eldest son manage to get a spot in a triple science class and my second son was promoted from a normal stream to an express stream in 2017. My 3 kids are fast growing up and like any other teenagers, their aspirations are affected by peer pressure which can be a negative impact towards a child-father relationship if it is not delicately manage.
I am not one to shy away from adversity and I always instill to my children to be thankful and grateful to what they have in life. However, I am clinging on hope that this one promise I can fulfill.
To everyone out there in the world that is reading this, your donations will allow me to instill to my children that life is OK, so not lose hope as there are always a helping hand when you need it as long as you go through life with genuine sincerity.
I sincerely thank you for your time, even if you do not make a donation, your prayers to my family and I would suffice. I hope and pray for all of us to have a healthy and prosperous life always.
Thank you once again.
