The Unwanted Kind of Fire

Life is dragging me down, I swear, there is a conspiracy in this universe that aim to make my life miserable, oh yeah, I'm thinking crazy but who can blame me? So, while I am spinning around in real life, I was late in finding out that an online buddy almost loss her home to a fire, according to her, it was less than 5 houses and theirs would have been part of the fire casualties, good thing, the firefighters in their area as well as the other volunteers from Manila stopped the fire before that tragedy happened. She was telling me how scared and frozen she felt, and how all her neighboring friends rushed out to help her and her two children, how her husband who is in the US at the moment was panicking when he found out, and how thankful she is that they are safe, you know what, I am super thankful too.

She lives in a well-to-do village here in the Philippines, I think, some of her relatives and her husband's family also live in the same block. A few of her friends/neighbors, unfortunately, lost their house and most of their belongings to the fire, the others needs major renovation while the lucky ones only need minor rebuilding and redesigning of their houses. Wood floor installers are surely in demand in their vicinity at the moment, and I wish everyone can rebuild more than their houses but more on moving on with their lives. I wish everyone the strength to carry on, shoulders to lean on and the faith to keep on believing and standing up.

God is always merciful.

fire can be traumatic. Good thing your friend's house was spared.

I'd like to thank you for your concern :) As of now, everything seems normal although we still have few aftershocks in some places once in awhile. But we believe we are safe.

Take care and happy weekend :)

much love, bambie
