anakku, Mahdi-ku, kebanggaanku…
selamat Ulang Tahun, di tahun pertamamu ini

tennafodo malampe’ sunge’mu anekku…
madeceng malempu lalengmu ri lino na akherat

lirih pinta kami pada Tuhan
semoga kami bisa mengemban amanah menjadi orang tua yang baik bagimu
membantu mengarahkanmu ke tujuan hidupmu kelak
menjadi manusia yang senantiasa berguna, berakhlak mulia
namun tetap tawadhu kepada sesama…

amin…

bapakmu yang bangga….

foto ultah dirayain…:p 

ini ada sedikit petuah dari teman bapak- jend Mc Arthur
gak apa-apa kalo beliau ini dulunya jenderal militer
yang meluluh lantakkan asia tenggara di WW II,
tp sumpeh, puisinya keren sekali….

Build Me a Son
General Douglas A. MacArthur

Build me a son, O Lord,
who will be strong enough to know when he is weak,
and brave enough to face him self when he is afraid;
one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat,
and humble and gentle in victory.

Build me a son whose wishbone will not be
where his backbone should be;
a son who will know Thee- and that
to know himself is the foundation stone of knowledge.

Lead him, I pray, not in the path of ease and comfort,
but under the stress and spur of difficulties and challenge.
Here, let him learn to stand up in the storm;
here, let him team compassion for those who fall.

Build me a son whose heart will be clear, whose goals will be high;
a son who will master himself before he seeks to master other men;
one who will learn to laugh, yet never forget how to weep;
one who will reach into the future, yet never forget the past.

And after all these things are his,
add, I pray, enough of a sense of humor,
so that he may always be serious,
yet never take himself too seriously.

Give him humility, so that he may always remember
the simplicity of true greatness,
the open mind of true wisdom,
the meekness of true strength.

Then I, his father, will dare to whisper,
“I have not lived in vain.”
