Kahapon ng gabi muntik na kaming maaksidente. Yung taxi na sinasakyan namin manipis na pala yung preno at habang bumabagtas kami sa daan, bumilis ang takbo niya. Biglang may tumigil na 14 wheeler truck sa harapan namin. Dahil malayo pa naman, sa calculation ko aabot ung preno nya. Pero nung malapit sa truck saka lang siya nagpreno, halos hindi na aabot. Wala na lang ako magawa kundi sumigaw.

Ganun pala yung feeling. Kahit anong aral mo ng safety precautions, mga gagawin kapag ka-orasan na, yung normal na takbo ng katawan mo titigil na lang.

Iniliko ni Manong Driver ung kotse sa kanan. Sabay kami humampas sa gilid ng truck. Mapapaisip ka na lang what if biglang nabasag yung salamin? Or may nakagilid pala sa truck na bakal tapos tumusok sa sasakyan? Ano kaya yung nangyari?

By God’s grace, wala man lang nasaktan samin pati si Manong Driver. Sasakyan lang talaga. Para lang kaming tumabi sa truck. Bumaba na lang kami at umalis.

 


 

At our age today, (I am 25), we are too occupied. We tend to forget petty things we should be grateful. Most of the times mas madami tayo regrets and reklamo rather than thanking ones that we have.

What if its our last? Are we ready?

Handa na ba nating iwanan yung mga tao na naging mahalaga na sa ating mga buhay?

Kaya mo na ba?

Have you found the fulfillment na hinahanap mo?

Have you accomplished yung mga bagay na gustong gusto mo?

Have you enjoyed the life here?

Have you fulfilled God’s desire for your life?

Before this ends, let us be thankful and grateful sa mga bagay na meron tayo.  For our strength, our life, God’s never ending love, and what we have.

Maybe we may not have all that we want but we can be contented on whats in it.

Maybe we cannot see the our progress, but through our little steps, we may accomplish.

And maybe….

I’m not always as thankful as I should be, but today I am. Today I will try to be grateful all day, since you are generous all day to me, like you are every day.*
