the flood



If we have snow days, Philippines has flood days..

Unlike snow, this water comes from polluted rivers and sewage around the community.

No boots can protect you from diseases.

I remember when I was little, I would wash my feet as soon as I get to school and when 

I get home.

I would bring alcohol and towel , hope for the best that I don't catch anything.

Unless there is a  thunderstorm and torrential rains, I never missed school. 

Flood did not stop me from learning.


Tricycle is one of our means of transportation



This is our church. Thank God the water did not reach the inside of the church

They move on.

People will still need to buy food, go to work. Life does not stop.

They are not even wearing any protection. 

The girls are okay. Their families are not affected by the floods . Thank God.

They are thankful just to be there. 

I don't complain much about snow days and rainy days, cause I know others have it much worst.

Just be thankful you are here.


Thank you for stopping by,




Hugs,

Monica

I do agree! Whenever we complain about little things, someone in the other part of the world is deeply suffering from a more serious problem. I always remind myself of that. My heart goes out to all the people affected by the storm and victims of the storm. God Bless! Thank you for visiting. I will follow you. :)

Glad to hear your girls are okay. I've never been in a flood, pretty close to one, but not quite. I can only imagine the smell and bugs and such.
