Couple’s Corner : Meet Our Fathers

>> Jun 10, 2010

This time is our fathers’ turn. Of course we love our fathers. Without them, we won’t be here, right? They also work hard for fulfilling all family needs. We do need a father figure in our life, someone that tells wisdom words and gives protection and guidance to the whole family.

My Father

Gumirang is my father’s name. He’s 75 years old now and we live together at the same house. Not like my mother, my father is a calm and quiet person. There are many things of my father that I admire. He’s a man with a high discipline to himself. Until now, he always keeps his health, his healthy food and daily schedule. At his work place, he’s famous for his integrity and honesty. He’s a ‘clean’ person. Do you know what can happen for a ‘clean’ person in a government institution at that time? He had hard times and a few years before he was retired, he didn’t get a place in any structural position anymore.

One thing that I admire of my father is, he loved my mother very much. After he’s not working anymore, he totally accompanied my mother. After my mother passed away in 1999, he can let her go in peace and then continues the life. He’s also a religious person, he always do ritual prayers every day at a mosque near the house. Wish him good health in many years to come…

My Father in-law
I’ve written a little about my father in-law in my last post. Abah Kaseh is actually 84 years now; I made a mistake in writing his age. He’s healthy, but he already can’t hear well. It’s a pity that he doesn’t like using a hearing aid. When we want to communicate, we must talk very loud near his ear or writing it on a paper, hahaha.

As mentioned before, he prefers lives in his own home, but he also often visits his children. When my mother in-law was still healthy, they both run a gold jewelry store. After she passed away, the hard times came to my hubby’s family, as my father in-law had financial problem. The store must be sold to handle all medical cost. Then he became a farmer and a seller in the market.

Like my father, I guess he loved his wife very much. He's also a religious person. After my mother in-law died in 1986, he’s never got married again. Our fathers are loyal men, right? Wish him good health, too…

Nyempatin mampir nih mbak, di tengah kesibukan.

Kayaknya kita patut belajar dari orangtua dulu. Mereka mencintai pasangannya sampai mati. Kalo jaman sekarang, baru aja dua bulan ditinggalin, langsung nyari lagi deh, hehehe....

oh yes! they are indeed loyal! and their being religious just shows how good they are as a father... wishing a longer life for your 2 fathers...

Yup, must be loyal and faithful. your father in law is 84 and still alive and kicking huh. and your father is 74. Men live longer in your family. You're so lucky to have a clean father, clear conscience and honest father figure. My father was the same, so honest..no wonder we didn't get rich, hehhee! Thanks for joining Lina
