Merry Christmas to all the children we found along the road as we drove the stretch of Maharlika Hiway from Guinobatan thru Ligao,Oas, Polangui, Albay all the way to Nabua, Cam Sur, then back via Sabluyon barangays to Bacacay, Albay, finding the streetchildren I met last year, to serve true to a promise I made with them that I will again see them this year!! And yes we did see them again!!! Nakakatuwa excited na excited sila makita kami. Kala mo talagang kilala na nila kami.. sabi pa ng isa, ‘antay po namin kayo, Mam, talaga kasi sabi nyo dalhan nyo kaming mansanas ngayong pasko..’ and yes na enjoy nila the simple things we brought them, donuts, apples, koolers and slippers!! Thank you from the deepest recesses of my heart to FHM co-volunteers Nancy Cerillo Capuno, Toti Paliza, Jojie Botial-Oraye and her good friend, Jane Frivaldo,FHM Green Warrior, Fer Peralta , my dear high school classmates with such good hearts, Judge Cely Crisostomo and Eric Cris Chona Mendoza Calderon, my dear friend, Ems Lomerio (thank you for the extra chips and choco bars for the children of Bonga, Bacacay) and most of all to my loving sisters, Ate Laura Lontok and Lourdes Flores , Tikboy and Tisya, who initially funded this mission of mine, for with them, 600 children from all over Albay and Nabua, “a little special love” .. even amidst pandemic and all the difficulties, brought these children smile and joy this Christmas. Maraming salamat Lord for making me “us” instruments of your love!
Twelve hours on the road but time passed so quickly with all our hearts feeling full as our boxes of donuts, apples etc.. started getting empty, until only one in each remained..until wiped clean..
“Giving is living..”
Be kind to one another!!
with Arpie Patriarca
