All The Sin­gle Ladies

Good Housekeeping (Philippines) - - News - Tisha Al­varez EDITOR IN CHIEF­house­keep­ingph

THIS MONTH, WE’RE WISH­ING ALL THE DAD­DIES A HAPPY FA­THER’S DAY: Get cool gift ideas (that aren’t socks) in our techie gift guide (page 06), as well as fun ac­tiv­i­ties that the man of the house can en­joy with the whole fam­ily (page 74). Award-win­ning TV re­porter Jiggy Man­i­cad also penned an es­say de­scrib­ing his life as a jour­nal­ist and fa­ther of three lit­tle girls (page 72).

While we’re cel­e­brat­ing fa­thers, I’d like to wish all fel­low sin­gle moms a Happy Fa­ther’s Day, too! Cheers to you for fill­ing two roles at once, for be­ing strong when oth­ers have walked out or given up, and for try­ing to do the best you can, ev­ery sin­gle day. In a blog post en­ti­tled “An Ode to Sin­gle Moth­ers,” ad­ver­tis­ing and PR spe­cial­ist Kim Berg­eron writes, “You can wear your in­vis­i­ble Badges of Honor know­ing that de­spite the many chal­lenges and of­ten­times the harsh judg­ment of oth­ers, you have a will of iron and an un­quench­able spirit.”

Cheers to that drive and that fire to raise your kids on your own, no mat­ter how dif­fi­cult the cir­cum­stances. Cheers to you as you con­tinue to face chal­lenges with strength and grace. And cheers to the peo­ple around you who sup­port you, don’t judge you, and love you un­con­di­tion­ally. One day, your kids will be all grown up, and they’ll look back and see that they were raised by a war­rior.

Our model, ac­tress and new mom Cai Cortez, was a pro at strut­ting her stuff! Here she is with the shoot team.
