Sa halagang P4

Had one of those unusual days again.

I woke early today to prepare for work and even had a chance to have breakfast with mommy. She kindly prepared me my water jug and 3 cookies as my baon. :p Feeling its going to be a very good day, I kissed mommy goodbye and I'm off to work. Even if it's too hot (only 8:30 in the morning) my umbrella and I walked from the house to the entrance of our Village, hailed a jeepney and got in. Once seated, I rummage my bag for my wallet to pay. Low and behold, my wallet is not in my bag! I frantically searched even if I know that I wont find my wallet but I did found P4 coins in the small pocket of my bag. Since I'm too far from the village to walk back, I told the driver that I only have P4 with me and if it's OK with him. Thank God he said OK and seems to understand my dilemma. I got down at SM terminal and realized another problem. I have no money to pay for my fare going to the office! >.< I went up to the booth (where people must pay first before hoping on the jeep) and talked to the Manong and told him I left my wallet and if I can ride the jeep but with the promise that Il pay him tomorrow. The 'barker' said, "OK lang suki naman si Ma'am!" I rode the jeep and got in the office 10minutes early.

Now I'm writing my post from the office where i realized that there are still kind people in the world. One way or the other, people still do understand where one's badluck or dilemma is coming from and didnt want to make it harder for them. Moments where we felt worried and helpless but help will always come our way.

Just like what the bible said, “Then Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?’” (Luke 12:22-26, NIV)
