A salute to all fathers who tireless support their families, Firefly LED shares its heartwarming Father’s Day tribute through a video that perfectly captures what it really means to be a father.
While fathers may not often be associated as nurturing and warm individuals, they continue to be what keeps the family together through his hard work, determination to succeed and selflessness.
His every success is inspired by his dream of a wonderful life for his family, it is the thought of them being happy that keeps him going no matter how tired he may get from working.
Making time between work commitments and his family is not always easy, in fact, it takes a great amount of commitment to make things work but that’s what makes fathers admirable human beings in the first place.
While it can’t be helped that sometimes he won’t be around much at home if work gets too busy, there’s always a way to create family time.
This Father’s Day, why not bring the celebration to dad instead of waiting for him?
Show how thankful you are for being the light and pillar of the family.
In line with its “Kasama Mo” campaign, Firefly LED effectively captures the realities of being a father through a video featuring three real-life fathers from all walks of life.
In the video, three fathers from different walks of life talk about how much they love their families, and why they don’t mind making sacrifices if it means seeing their children grow up happy and well – and most importantly, that their families remain intact.
“Ako ang nag-aalaga sa kanila, lahat ng pangangailangan nila, pag-aaral, pagkain, baon nila araw araw, kung ano yung kailangan, yun ang ginagampanan,” says Harold, a 43-year-old single father and architect of his responsibility to his three children.
When asked what kind of father he is to his children, Rowel, a 47-year-old electrician has this to say, “Mapagmahal na ama. Hanggang kaya ko magtrabaho, gagawin ko. Sila lang ang kayamanan ko sa buhay.”
Fifty-year-old driver turned real estate agent, Mario, takes pride in being able to provide for his children, especially for their education, “Napagtapos ko silang lahat. Masasabi ko pa rin naman na naging maayos yung pagpapalaki ko sa kanila.”
When asked what it is that they continue to pray for their family, a teary-eyed Mario says that he doesn’t want a broken family, same with Rowel, who shares he doesn’t want his children to suffer any hardships in life, adding how, one of his daughters is currently going through some problems with her partner who took away their child.
As the three fathers were talking about the joys and sacrifices of being a father, unbeknownst to them their families have been listening to their interviews, shedding tears of appreciation for their beloved fathers.
This time, it’s their families who will be making the effort to celebrate the wonderful fathers that they are. Selfless, loving, and will do anything for their families.
“Siya yung tipo ng tatay na isusubo nalang yung pagkain, iuuwi pa sa ‘min, mahal na mahal ka namin,” says Rowel’s eldest daughter, who couldn’t help but cry as she recounts how selfless their father is when it comes to providing for their needs.
Rowel’s daughter is equally filled with emotions when she greets her father, saying “thank you” for everything that he has done for them and apologizes for whatever heartaches she may have caused. Rowel receives her with a warm embrace.
Harold is surprised to see his children visiting him to give him a gift saying that it is the first time he has ever experienced something like this, and with a shaky voice, adds, “Masarap pala.”.
It is definitely heartwarming to hear their stories and see how, with a just a loving hug from their family members and words of appreciation, one can easily see the look of contentment and happiness in their eyes.
That with just a small gesture of appreciation, they are reassured that all of their sacrifices for their families are worth it.
How do you celebrate your father’s love?
