Always Count your Blessings!
Life is hard. Especially here in beloved Philippines. Whatever you do, it just doesn't seem to be enough. This picture depicts how hard life is, not only is it being experienced in my country but all over the world.
While waiting for the boat to come and pick them up for a trip to Samal, Hubby chanced upon getting this pic of this boy who digs deep in the muddy and dirty soil, for what you may ask, but to get trash, any valuable trash. Isn't it ironic? How can trash be valuable? Well, as they say, another one's trash may be another one's gold. And this is really truly happening. I feel pity seeing this picture, it just saddens me that many people have been suffering like this.
I blame the parents, the government, the teachers, this boy. I blame him for not being in school, for not thinking about what his life will be in the near future. What more?
This boy should be in school, he should be learning life in school and not in this dirty landfill where he is digging for something valuable to be sold to a junk shop. And that is in order for him to fill his empty stomach. Oh dear, it's just a hard life.
But why are there people who indulge in so many lucky things, blessings to them I may say, but they have the tendency to abuse the blessing coming their way. They do drugs, they party all night, they eat and leave their plates half full.
Oh yes, life is so unfair.
Ok, so I am blessed, and I guess you too are. So please, be thankful of the things that chance upon your way. Many people suffer, but rejoice, because you are favored. Always count your blessings!
Just spilling out the contents of my heart, for this little boy.
