A loving grandpa brings his grandson in a basket while he works at their farm.
Knowing how difficult his life because he never went to school, 75-year-old Lolo Juanito Lintapan hopes that his grandson won’t experience what he had gone through all these difficult years. He also prays that the boy will be able to go to school so he can have a better future!
Featured on Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, this loving grandpa does not mind carrying his grandson in a basket as he works at the farm. What is important for him is that the boy is safe and happy.
Every time he tries to leave the boy at home, the young kid would cry so hard that it really breaks Lolo Juanito’s heart. So, he decided to bring him along even if the child is quite heavy already.
“Pinapasan ko ‘yung apo ko kasi naaawa ako sa kanya dahil iyak nang iyak. Kaya ginamit ko ang basket na bukag,” Lolo Juanito explained.
“Ang hirap nang hindi nakapag-aral. Hindi ako marunong magbasa o magsulat. Tumanda lang ako. Walang nabago sa aking pamumuhay. Hanggang 2,000 lang aking alam bilangin. Kaya sabi ko sa apo ko, ‘Ikaw, kapag lumaki ka na, pagsikapan mo na makapag-aral. Para walang mangmamaliit sa’yo at may sarili kang pag-iisip.’”
At this time, the boy is still too young to really understand what his grandpa is saying but in time, he would surely know what the old man means. Hopefully, this would inspire him to work harder to reach for his dreams, despite the difficult situation they are in due to their poverty…
God bless po, Lolo Juanito and to your family.
