Moving Up

Just like that, another school year had passed and my son is now ready to move up again to the last level of Pre School. I can still remember his first day of school, new friends, new experiences, and new adventures. But last Thursday was also the last day that he will see his classmates because most of them will transfer to the new school and some of his classmates chose to skip the Preparatory level and will be in Grade 1 already. Time will tell what will happen to these kids in the future.

As a parent, we will just be here to love and to support you because it is you who will create your own future.



I got teary-eyed again when the kids sang the “Glowing Inside”. After that, my son went to me, hugged me, kissed me and said: “I love you, mommy”.

Glowing Inside

Happy, to let you know 
You make me glow I feel so good, it's true 
So glad that I have you 
You love me so 
Now all is bright 

I'll always thank you for the glow 
And thank you for the joy 
Thank you for the love you give to me 
I'm glowing, glowing inside 
With your love shining through 
Thank you for everything you do 
I'm glowing inside because of you 

Remember, my growing years 
They're filled with joy 
Because you're there for me 
You kiss my fears away 
You wipe those tears 
You gave me strength each day 

I thank you for the glow 
And thank you for the joy 
Thank you for the love you give to me 
I'm glowing, glowing inside 
With your love shining through 
Thank you for everything you do 
I'm glowing inside because of you 

Who knows what tomorrow brings 
My glowing wings can make me fly 
I'll reach and I will touch the sky 
Because of you, 
I'll soar up high 
So I must 

Thank you for the glow 
And thank you for the joy 
Thank you for the love you give to me 
I'm glowing, glowing inside 
With your love shining through 
Thank you for everything you do 
I'm glowing inside because of you

Well, to my one and only son, one day you will discover that I have a blog and one day you will be able to read this. I just want you to know that I’m proud of you, I’ve seen your improvement from first day of school and I’m happy that you are always excited to go to school. I want that passion more than the award. Always remember that “It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish” and I hope that you will not stop learning, you will not stop dreaming and you will not stop believing in yourself.

“Develop a passion for learning, if you do, you will never cease to grow – Anthony D’Angelo”

Just do your best and study not for an award, study not for your parents but study because you have a dream. I don’t want you to follow our footsteps but take the path next to us and go farther than we ever reach and dream.
