This morning as I was placing a sticker at the rear windshield of our car I realized how truly blessed we are to have a growing family. I remember how Queenie and I started in 1984 when we got married. When we joined Couples for Christ in 1990, we only had two children then, AJ and Teng, aged 5 and 2.
Later on our two other children came, Janni and Chinggay. In our desire to attend our CFC activities, we would tag them along in our prayer meetings, teachings, prayer assemblies, and even out of town weekend retreats. Even when we started to serve the community, we would bring along our kids at times when there was no one we could leave them with. When we first served at a marriage enrichment retreat in Antipolo in 1993, we brought along our kids, all three of them at the time. And when Chinggay came in 1994, subsequent faraway mission trips saw them with us, in Bataan and Cagayan way up north.
