Nothing breaks my heart more than anything in this world but children who are in desperate need of LOVE.
Today is a very sad but a fulfilling day for both me & my good friend, Yves who is celebrating her pre-birthday soiree with children who are orphans in this side of the world. The group's minister, refused to be named as they want no attention or whatsoever to his orphanage because it is a private institution that is funded by several businessmen in the city.
As we were preparing the kids before the party formally started. I personally couldn't help but start to be a little teary knowing that these children are abandoned or w/ parents that died and several other heart breaking stories that led to their present situation.
I always have a soft spot for little children who are in pain. Im a frustrated wannabe mom, that explains how close I am to my nieces & nephew. So wannabe-mom that I border this "mommyger" or stage mom to their every school performance. So, I want nothing more but only the best for the kids coz' they deserve all the LOVE & attention. And to see innocent lives being taken away with the most essential relationship that would nurture them for the rest of their lives especially their childhood, totally sad & heart breaking.
However, sad as it may seem. We are so blessed that we were able to share a little something to these kids. When I learned about this plan months ago, that Yves is organizing a little party for underprivileged kids. I right away volunteered to join. And a lot of our friends also pitched in by sharing what they have financially.
It was a successful party for these kids. To see a lot of genuine smiles you know that have warmed their hearts in a way coz we made them feel wanted. And I know that is something big to them. And in our own little way, we have shared a little of what we have too.
At the end of the party, we were so happy to have helped these unwanted & abandoned kids. It's those little moments in our blessed life & as we grow older, we don't need anymore any of those WILD COLORFUL soirees with boozes that makes you forget the night of your party. We want a party that is as meaning as having to share your blessings with these kind of people. And it's a differend kind of happiness, fulfillment & satisfaction when you are able to help such group of people.
For sure, this is not only the beginning. But just a start.
With that, I want to thank Yves for taking me here to Mati City and letting me experience it all. LOVES it! Happy birthday, Mama!
Excited for our island hopping tomorrow!
Will take lots & lots of photos!
