Many Filipinos are going abroad for greener pasture.  To give their family financial support,  for better future and for their kids to finish their students up to college.  Their main goal to work abroad is for their family.  They fight sadness and being homesick for their family’s sake. They do not mind the danger that is ahead of them for they bring the greatest weapon anyone could ever have, the prayer.
Of what is happening now in Libya, many Filipino workers sent back home for their safety.  Their hopes to give their family a better future are crashing down.  I have seen on the news where some Filipino working there are sent back home.  Some are happy they nothing happens to them and they are home safely.  And some are sad for their hopes are gone.  Although they can still apply for a new job to other country, but the thought of the money they spent just to get there is so frustrating especially to those who has just arrived in Libya.  It is like their dreams are snatched from them. 
So sad situation, but if they look at the positive side of it, money is just money and it can be earned again.  But when life is taken away, no way we can take it back.  As the saying goes, ‘ if a door is closed another will open’.  Never lost hope and continue dreaming there is a better opportunity for them to come.  Opportunity that will surely give them the chance to make their dreams come true and for the better future of their family. 

Today is an idle day for me. I just sit down and think of different things from the past that I want to look back and wishing I can do something about it now or make changes in my life. What I think about earlier is my mother. I miss her so much. I did not spend more time about her when she was still alive because she is very sick.
I was looking back during the days when she was still alive. I remember she taught us values, manner and to be a responsible one. Even she was very sick, still she tried her best to teach us. She wants us to learn and to be a responsible human being. What I am not is because of her. She is my inspiration, my guidance and my life. Even if she is no longer around, I want her to know that she made me a responsible person and a better individual. Thanks to you mother. Wherever you are right now, you will always be in my heart and mind.
This is my Thankful Thursday share for this week.

 

Earthquake

One of the calamities that I do not want to experiece is earthquake.  Thinking about it scares me to death.  Once I had experienced  intensity 6.  It really scares me and haunt me in my sleep.  Nothing serious happens to me and to my family but the experienced is traumatic to me.  
Last night I saw in the news about earthquake in New Zealand.  It breaks my heart to see people dying, injured and in pain.  Many properties have been damaged and life taken.  It is easy to accept if only the properties are being destroyed because we can put it back.  But when life is taken the feeling is different.  I wish to help them but my situation is not capable of doing it.  I can only say a prayers to those victims and to the families who have lost their love ones.  I am  not happy that it is not happening to me, I am just saying people here in my country are blessed by God to spare us from those calamities.  God bless us all!!!

Last two weeks ago my old slipper was missing in action.lol I do not know who took it. Its just disappear outside our house. Really times are hard that people cannot afford to buy slippers.

Thanks to my brother for the slipper he bought for me.

Going Out With Friends..

After months of planning to see each other and do the bonding like we used to do, we did it today. I and my two other friends are going out and spend the afternoon talking. It is a good feeling that at last we have some time to talk and be happy. Since our lives are different now, we seldom see each other because we do have different responsibilities. We do chat online and exchanging message in mobile phone, seeing each other and spending time talking and eating is different. It is like bring back those times when we are still in college. Less responsibilities, and always think of going to mall.

I missed my friends very much, and missed those times when we see each other more often. I seldom go out these days because of the responsiilities that is given to me. But today I took a day off to spend time with my friends and go out. I feel my freedom today and I feel the life of being single. Go out, go to mall and do not think of the time I have to go home. At last I did go out and enjoy my life without thinking of my responsibilities at home. Because of those responsibilities, I do not feel I have a life anymore. Thanks to Nancy and Ada for the time and the treat. God bless you more.!.
