a child will lead

Sometimes, a little "eye-opener" can be one great instrument for change. And it follows that the next big step depends on how one reacts, responds and interprets.

If there is any gauge on how prepared first-time parents are on having a child, we would have failed it. There were mixed emotions - we were excited and anxious, eager yet agitated - but the moment the little boy was born, these feelings vanished, and we were completely overwhelmed.

Life, suddenly, is different.

We work, not just for betterment, but with purpose. Our son, the heart and soul of our lives as we say, inspires us in everything we do and fuels our determination to succeed. Being a parent is tough. Motherhood and fatherhood are the hardest occupations, as it is quoted time and time again. There is a lot to worry about and a lot to work hard for. The upbringing of a child always reflects on his parents. There is the constant pressure of molding a little kid's life and of how varied his opportunities are in the future. But on top of all that, a child undeniably humbles an adult. His innocence and the way simple things make him happy always brighten up a day.

"The wolf shall dwell with the lamb,
and the leopard shall lie down with the kid,
and the calf and the lion and the fatling together,
and a little child shall lead them.
The sucking child shall play over the hole of the asp,
and the weaned child shall put a hand in the adder’s den.
[Isa. 11:6]."

We are taught to have child-like humility and we know that a parent is not likely to give his child a stone when asked for bread, a snake when asked for fish, or a scorpion when asked for an egg.

In time for the feast of the child jesus, we keep this in mind.

With the festive ambiance these days in the island of Cebu, people will flock to the streets this weekend to join the mardi gras. And as pure cebuanos, we join in the celebration. Not just for the fun of it but as a way of thanksgiving as well. In honor of Señor Sto. Niño, The Corteses wish everyone a happy Sinulog.

pit senyor!

final dose:
we hope to see you on the streets this sunday!
