Hi, everyone! :)
I have been meaning to scrap this photo last year but as you can see, i got to scrap it only now. teehee :d this is my dd and me with dear old Santa on Christmas of 2003 (taken in Shangri-La Mall in the Philippines).
Journaling, which I wrote in 2003, is tucked behind the photo and reads:
My dear little girl,
This photo means so much to me as it signifies many great things.
Firstly, it marks our fourth Christmas together--- just you and me. We never had the chance to spend our holidays with your biological dad but despite it all, we still are blessed to have each other.
Secondly, this symbolizes the end of our "just-between-you-and-me" Christmases. God willing, we will be spending our next Christmas with your step dad--- the father you have always missed, the dad who loves you like his own, the dad who sincerely loves your mom.
Finally, this photo represents the real meaning of Christmas. LOVE. We have encountered numerous obstacles, faced difficult trials and challenging times but our unwavering love for each other helped us move forward. Some people may have abandoned us but love NEVER did. You always had my undying love while I always had your unconditional love. And this photo is but one proof of that GENUINE LOVE.
So, with that said, I hope you treasure this photo as much as I do.
