A bittersweet Surprise

The past few days have been quite dramatic and life-changing, not just for me, but mostly for someone I know especially well. He just recently became a father and overnight, these heavy responsibilities are going to start getting heavier and heavier on his shoulders.

As much as I want to be there for him, I cannot do so because I am utterly incapable and secondly, I am not sure whether I will be able to help him as much.

I promised him, jokingly (but I meant it), that if I were a big-time doctor, already, his little girl could have anything her little heart ever wished for, and all she had to do was ask me.

I suppose the thrill of fatherhood is still keeping him buoyed up and exhilirated. His little girl is himself in all aspects, down to the mouth and earlobes. It must be something for a man to see his own likeness in his offspring.

This is a bittersweet that will be known by all anytime soon. For his sake, I hope it will be soon because he's going to need all the help he can get.
