Masbate Senior Provincial Board Member Jason Arevalo vowed to make it up to his children who were not with him this Christmas, no thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.
“If I could, I’d cross the sea and drive to where my kids are. To cook for them, to go malling and buy them stuff, to go to church with them in thanksgiving and pray for a better and safer year ahead,” the politiko said.
“A lot of things I’d barter just to be with my Aquin and Lorraine. Miss you both, my babies. Miss the times we’d pray the rosary together each night, when you’d feast on my own twist of French toast, when just being with you is comfort and ease beyond measure,” he added.
Arevalo said that this Christmas is different amid the threats of coronavirus disease.
“If only because we’re not together. It hurts I’ve been sharing the fruits of my toil and hard work with people I know and not much but couldn’t personally hand to you my Christmas gifts,” he said.
Arevalo said that he misses his children and vowed to make up for the time lost because of the extraordinary time we are in.
“One day, when this is over, I will make it up to both of you. Papa loves and misses you both terribly. God bless and protect you, my little ones,” he said.
“This as I pray for all those dads and moms and kids who were separated from each other because of this pandemic. May the Holy Family of St. Joseph, Mama Mary and Lord Jesus bind all them in faith and in love,” he added.
