Blessed/OWT & WWW


A quick glimpse at the sunset while visiting  a friend at her beach house in Subic.  I wish we stayed longer here but we wanted to get home early to avoid the weekend traffic going back to the city.  My friend and her family were loving the cool breezes from the West Philippine Sea that they decided to extend their stay.   This was a quiet sunset, not as fiery as the sunsets in the summer but it's beautiful nonetheless.  And I feel incredibly blessed to have seen this beauty---we're enjoying a great weather while the southern part of the country has been drowning in torrential rains that have brought flash floods to communities that are still recovering from a devastating storm last month.

"The most significant gifts are the ones most easily overlooked.  Small, everyday blessings:  woods, health, music, laughter, memories, books, family, friends, second chances, warm fireplaces, and all the footprints scattered throughout our days." ~ Sue Monk Kidd

I wished you stayed longer too. I wished you don't have to work the following day so you can relax some more.
