Say a little prayer

Today, as we settled into our chairs for dinner, my husband and I said a short prayer.

While we do normally thank the Lord for the grub before every meal, this time, we realized we had so much to be thankful for. While we were about to partake of a meal of homemade lasagna (a tag-team effort) and a bottle of Chardonnay from the Land of Oz, the rain was just ending its epic run. Elsewhere in Metro Manila, people were stranded on their roofs, some had lost everything--their homes submerged in two-storey-high water, others had lost perhaps the most important person in their lives. Typhoon Ondoy came, saw, and unleashed a record downpour that submerged the metropolis. And here we were, dry, warm, safe.

We still have no TV and no radio, and thus were completely oblivious to what was going on in the outside world--that is, until, we received calls and text messages from concerned friends and family, and updates online. We were grateful, but we were also concerned. We thanked God for being oh so very good to us, but we also said a special prayer for those who were unfortunately in Ondoy's path of destruction. Please, spare a minute after reading this and say a little prayer for them.
