PhotoHunt#20 Thankful

Each time I count my blessings, “My Cup Runneth Over”.

Tudaya Falls, Kapatagan, Digos, Davao del Sur


I have a lot to thank for in my life. I am even thankful of the trials and pains that I went through because without those I would have not known joy, happiness and triumph; I would not know how to appreciate what I have and what I can become. Without those, I would not be able to emphatize with people who are still suffering and I would not be able to want to help. I would not know the difference between needs and wants and I would not know that a lot of people are having a hard time putting food in their mouth while others throw away theirs without remorse.

I am thankful of my parents especially my mother who emphasized the value of honesty, education and hardwork.

I am thankful that I was able to travel to countries like USA, China, and Australia that taught me a lot about different people and their cultures.

I am thankful that I was able to explore a little bit of my country by mountain climbing, and other outdoor activities. Our beaches are beautiful, the sceneries are magnificent, and our people warm and friendly.

Thank you for giving us a much more positive view of the Philippines than we outside of it normally get (from the news, etc.).
