Ang Supportive Na Misis

lockhorns-3-5-14Isang hapon sa kanilang tarangkahan
Nilapitan ng asawa si Mang Teban
“Oh darling, bakit wala kang kibo diyan.
Hmm… mukha yatang  meron kang dinaramdam”

“Naku honey, huwag mo akong pansinin.
Ano man ang problema ko’y… kakayanin”
“Mag-asawa tayo Teban. Di ba darling?”
Kaya ang problema mo’y problema ko rin.

“Kaya Teban, pwede bang sabihin mo na.
Huwag mong solohin, ako’y iyong asawa.
Sige na… ano ba ang ating problema?”
“Honey… buntis si Inday… tayo ang ama.”


Teacher-Writer-Advocate for Self-improvement M, A, and D are the initials of my two first names (Massuline and Antonio) and my mother's family name (Dupaya). Ligaya (a Filipino word which means happiness in English) is my family name. MAD is actually one of my nicknames aside from Tony and Ching. My full name is Massuline Antonio Dupaya Ligaya. Many times I was asked the question "Why do you write?" I don't write for material rewards nor adulation. When I write poems, stories, and essays, when I do research, the process of creating them gives me immense joy and seeing them completed brings me great satisfaction. I don't write for cash incentives, "likes," and "praises." I would be thankful should I get those but the happiness and sense of fulfillment I get while doing them and completing my works are my real rewards. Is teaching difficult? No! When I teach, I don't work but I play. My educational philosophy - "The classroom is my playground, the students are my playmates, and the subject is our toy." I am a lifelong learner too. My daily goal is to be better than I was yesterday. It's difficult, but it's worth the try. It's not for what I get from doing it but for what I become. Proud to be me! Proud to be a FILIPINO! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
