By and by, the youngest child come with a plate of noodles and say " Mama and Papa, I left some noodles for you. I know, you haven't taken your dinner". Tears start to flow from our weary eyes. We love our children so much. Despite of being poor, we do not let the realities of our life limit our dreams for our children. We promise to ourselves, as parents, to make them better person someday.
As the moon shines above while the cold breeze, through the dilapidated windows, embrace our bodies. But it's ok, our children would not feel it for we, as parents, will do anything to keep them warm. There is no better cloth than a hug with love.
With full of hopes to start life again for the next day, we all sleep well.
The next day...
Typhoon Sendong vanishes our dreams and hopes. Flashflood eradicates the future that would have been so bright for the twins and for the future doctor of Cagayan de Oro.
Let us help the victims of Typhoon Sendong. Every cent counts and more lives would probably extended. More hopes and dreams will be saved.
