Hopefully for good.

I didn’t have the heart to write the past days except to update you all on what happened here.

The hopelessness of seeing those affected by three consecutive typhoons which brought massive flooding, destroyed homes and crops, loss  of lives and so many homeless still struggling until now. I can’t forget the experience we had eleven years ago when we left the house with the flood waters up to my neck. You can only appreciate those little things in life that you used to ignore because they are there but at a blink of an eye suddenly gone. Needing a few pinch of salt to add to your cooking but you can’t find any.  Our ref was empty for days and we survived on canned goods  almost every day. I can’t imagine how the people in the north and in the Bicol region are doing at the moment with not even a house to come back to. So sad, so really, really sad.

Josef just washed and cleaned the carpet they were using in their room, Two more to go, one of which  I hadn’t used yet but they got wet when we were cleaning the floors. And the garden? Except for a few shoots, those that were close to the ground are still muddy until now. I’ve pruned the leaves and stems of some grown plants but we need to trim the carabao grass again.  It may take sometime before we could restore the whole thing to order. We’ll start tomorrow, hopefully.

I let myself relax for a while reading and finding materials (excerpts from my previous blog posts) to contribute to Sambuhay Interaktib, twice a week program of Sambuhay  TV mass. I found a small community of fellow Catholics there, befriended three of them.  The priest anchors are very supportive. Two stress-free nights twice a week 🙂

How are you all?  I’ll get back to reading your posts later, thanks!
