is a word thas is used to describe something one-of-a-kind like a hug
or a sunset or a person who spreads love with a smile or kind gesture.
"Special" describes people who act from the heart and keep in mind the
hearts of others. "Special" applies to something that is admired and
precious and which can never be replaced. "Special" is the word that
best describes my father, George Fajardo. The greatest gift my
father left to his family is the gift of love and the art in laughter.
life, we as kids, teenagers and young adults get so caught up in our
studies, jobs, friends, dances and other commitments that we sometimes
overlook whats important such as the little "Thank You", the hugs
good-bye, those little moments when wisdom is greatly needed but seldom
once a child myself and now an adult and a mother of two I often wonder
how our parents are able to put in an eight hour day at work, clean the
house, be in involved in Scouts or Church activities, and manage
to keep up with the social life of an ever growing and changing child,
teenager, or young adult.
me, this is not an easy task, but if my father had not been there for
all those little moments I don't feel that I would have accomplished
all that I have or even become the person that I am today. I am just
glad that I had those moments to tell him how much he meant to me. I
only wish he could be here so I could tell him just once more.
So remember the
next time you are running out the door don't forget to let that someone
know how much they mean to you.
This is a "Thank You!" to all those parents who run those endless
errands, work that stressful job, help out with late night homework,
provide rides to school and social activities, are there to guide us in
our scouting experiences and achievements, provide financial support
for our unexplainable hobbies & sense of style but most importantly
for the love, support and wisdom that will someday mold us into the
person that we have not knowingly aimed to be which is that of our
