Two weeks ago I’ve blogged about Adam, a boy Josef and I met at the church and I was impressed by his manners. What a nice surprise because meeting him again this morning made my day. He saw me near the door of the church office and said, “hello po, nagkita po ulit tayo”, at the same time he took my hand and said “mano po”. The words “mano po”, a gesture made by taking the hand of the elder and putting it on one’s forehead is a sign of respect and literally means “bless me”. That moment, I felt like we’ve known each other for quite a long time although it was only the second time we met him. What a well-mannered boy. He waited for us after the mass and pointed his grandparents to Josef and me.
What a blessing to meet kids like Adam.
