Lately, I have been constantly worrying about so many things. Some present and future concerns. That I always end up staring at blank spaces,trying to figure what to do. I have consulted my Friend upstairs on these concerns… and He sent his reply through this inspiring conversation with Manong tricycle driver, as I backride my way out of the village.
TD (tricycle driver): Bilis ng panahon, Pebrero na pala.
ME: oo nga ho.
TD: tapos Valentines, tapos halalan na.
ME: manong, bakasyon at summer po muna.
TD: wala naman kaming bakasyon. Kailangan kumayod,etong tricycle lang pinagkakakitaan ko.
ME: wala din naman ho akong bakasyon mga anak ko lang.
TD: isa na lang ang anak kong nag aaral. nasa kolehiyo.
ME: ilan ho anak niyo?
TD: apat. yung dalawa graduate na. May trabaho. Yung isa may trabaho pero huminto sa pag-aaral, sayang kasi college na.
ME: wow swerte niyo naman. Nakapagpatapos na kayo sa kolehiyo!
TD: dalawa pa dun ma’am, UP.
It was truly an inspiring story. TD is just a simple father, proud of his kids’ achievements. And he never gets tired to work for his family. No bitterness in his voice. He is just doing what is expected of him.
I guess it was God’s way of telling me, not to worry so much. That He has my back. That He will help me get through my concerns. Because that’s what He does to people like TD who never gets tired of working hard for his family.
I will never get tired of working for this wacky fam :)
