First time experience with White Forest!
We had experienced a lot of Firsts during these past few days, here is our story.
It’s been two weeks since we had experienced the wrath of Ondoy. There were many families affected and we were no exception, this was the first time that our house was flooded all throughout. Everything happened so fast and our whole compound was soaked in knee-deep water. And this made a lasting effect on our family until now.
Before this tragedy, our family loves to spend the weekends together. But because of gloomy weather, there are times that we had to stay at home and just watch some movies.
Exactly a week after, I had received a call from my husband asking me to go online and go to the website that he had joined. He is artist and he joins art contests in his spare time. He had joined numerous contests before but this was the first time that he won such a huge amount! I leaped for joy because the Prize would really help us in fixing our house which up to that time still bears the scars of the previous typhoon.
When my husband came home last night, he brought a small red box. My son quickly removed the red ribbon from the box and saw a sumptuous looking white forest cake inside. This is the first time that we bought a Red Ribbon cake. We could see in my son’s eyes his delight in each bite. This is even his first time that he took the spoon from our hands and tried to eat the cake using it! The experience was truly memorable.
Some say that experience is the worst teacher. It always gives the test first and the instruction afterward. Although life has its share of ups and downs, there is no reason not to enjoy life’s little treasures. We should enjoy this meandering and amazing journey called life. Slow down, smell the roses, watch a sunset. Love much, laugh often, and live well. Keep the journey full of wonder, full of love and full of benevolence. These are the secrets to happiness.
what ever happens in life we should always remember to live life to the fullest
