Lullaby

When you are wired to think too many thoughts all at once. Worries, intentions, consequences,  considerations, gains, losses, hurts, lessons, past, present, future, all at once. Picture the people you are most fond of. People who make you feel most loved. Picture them in your head. Then you can’t help but smile. Then there’s a sense of peace and calm. Then a good night’s sleep.

  1. I’ve been following the news about the storm that hit the Philippines. Please know that I am praying for you and your friends and family. I hope everyone is safe!

    • That’s wonderful of you Kim. Thank you, thank you very much. I feel grateful, beyond words, for your thoughtfulness and kindheartedness. My own family in Bacolod City is safe and secure. But there’s no peace of mind since my bestfriend’s family is in Tacloban City, they survived but no relief has reached them. There’s no food and the dad needs medicine for his diabetes. Many more friends whose families are in region 8 share the same story. It’s Day 5 and help is yet to reach them despite the aid and assistance we are hearing a lot of.

      • Cess, I am so happy to hear from you! Really. I had tears of joy when I got your message.

        I will continue to pray for those in Tacloban City and region 8. I’ve read that the destruction has made it hard for them to get relief into the area. Please know there are so many of us in the U.S. that are praying and working with the aid groups so that help can get there soon.

        Love ya, girl!

        • Tight hugs, Kim! Thank you isn’t enough for the comfort that your messages bring. I feel guilty that I only remembered to mention region 8 when in fact other municipalities (towns) and cities in other regions are likewise affected, though not as heavily as Tacloban. The time I wrote that comment, I was already feeling a tinge of frustration about the slowness of the relief operations but when I got more info later that day, I realized that extent of destruction is incomprehensible. That really placed things into a different perspective. I screencapped your comment and made a facebook status so that my bestfriend can see it. He wanted me to thank you. Thank you, Kim! To everyone in the U.S., to everyone in all parts of the world who has been sending us all sorts of help, tangible and otherwise, THANK YOU, THANK YOU VERY MUCH! MARAMING, MARAMING SALAMAT!
