Letters from the past

It’s not my birthday, not even Mother’s Day but I’m posting these letters from my kids when they were so much younger. I think I have posted these letters nine years ago this month. Reading them again made be feel happy and sad. Happy because I felt loved by my children. Even if they were young they were able to express their thoughts in writing. I also feel sad because I no longer receive similar letters from them. But I know both of them still love me just the same.

The last letters were from hubby and another one from my daughter on her graduation day. I think I have posted both letters separately on this blog.

From my son on my birthday:

From my daughter on Mother’s Day:

My daughter’s letter on her graduation day in high school:

Sweet note from hubby:

Nine years ago this happened…

A little  girl is carried to safety through flood waters in  Manila.

People wait for rescue on the top of their submerged houses in Cainta of Rizal

People wait for rescue on a submerged bridge also in Cainta, Rizal

We have been sleeping in our living room since Saturday night and might still be the setup in a few more days until our roof is fixed. We were roused from sleep by the drizzle emanating from the small holes in our roof the morning typhoon Ondoy hit the National Capital Region and adjacent provinces. We are thankful that it’s only holes that we are dealing with here. We still have a roof over our head unlike thousands of our kababayan left homeless by Ondoy? Its heart breaking to see people (on TV) scamper to their safety. At the makeshift evacuation centers people are crying begging for Good Samaritan to donate food and clothing, the immediate concern of evacuees especially for their youngster.

We were eating dinner then and saw this man crying for food. Hubby and I pause for a while. He said if only we can donate something for them to eat like canned goods. But we can’t go out as we have no means of transportation to get to the site. Our motorcycle has yet to be registered so hubby would not be able to drive it to the national road. Maybe I can use my site to spread the words by urging people to donate for the flood victims. Word of advice: make sure that the foundation/organizations/individuals receiving donations in cash and in kind are legitimate ones. We would not want our hard earned money to put to waste or end up in the wrong hands.

When the actual calamity hits, you will be left only with your faith in God! No matter how strong you think you are, it will only be the mercy of God that will sustain you! (Source)
