still at the office. i’m currently listening to Ed Sheeran’s The A Team.
and it got me thinking how many people struggle in life and how many ways we can choose to escape them — acceptance, facing it, suicide, etc.
it got me thinking about the times when i pray whenever i saw people in street who are in need; how help is an arm’s reach but they don’t even try to get it. or how we say, we’ll help but then hesitates when they’re right in front of us.
i have a very sympathetic heart but too weak to do something about it. i was on the way to the office when a beggar rode with us. i was sad how people reacted to him. the thought of children born in these situation is just appalling. i prayed that my daughter and future lineage won’t experience that hardship. my nanny was talking about yesterday how her son (in the province) won’t join their christmas party because there is a fee of 50php. approximately $1. instead of joining, they should just use it to buy food. i didn’t say much because i already gave her a something for christmas and to buy ticket to go home, to be with them. it’s just sad how a kid of that age (i think his 10 or 11) would think first of his family. when i was that age, i was already writing letters for santa. the awareness of their situation and other kids of his age take their riches for granted.
and to think that there are people who spend millions of dollars for their cats and dogs but not a penny to help other people.
sad reality of life.
if i ever have more than enough, i wish i could give more. but for now, it’s enough for us. lord, i just pray that they all would have a miracle for christmas.
note: i really sound like a mom scolding her children. lol.
