Sat back. Gathered my thoughts and I remember this picture.
Her name is Che-che, she is a mother of 7 , 3 of her girls attend our school. She only finished Grade 1 herself. Her daughters Erika and Leslie both finished their first year at FLAG and proudly attending the regular school curriculum. They will be in Grade 1. Her other daughter Janine, will need one more year with us so she can be well prepared when she attends grade school. Che-che used to push her daughters to steal or beg on the streets of Manila. That's all behind us now and we are making progress with her and her daughters.
It's difficult not complain at times, kids this, husband that! House is a mess! I don't make enough money! I'm too fat. I'm too skinny. I look too old! The list goes on....Do you know what she thinks about everyday? If they are going to eat tomorrow or the next day, and the next.
So, here's what I am thankful today..
10. thank you for my job, without it I will not be able to build FLAG
11. thank you Canada - for giving us the opportunity and the freedom we often forget
12. Thank you Che-Che for allowing your daughters to attend FLAG !
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again,
The F.L.A.G team
