Hey everyone! I hope you're all okay.
Today I wanted to write a different post to want I usually do. I wanted talk to you guys about the typhoon in the Philippines.
Yesterday, one of my teachers at school told us a story about a man who was affected by Typhoon Haiyan ( Typhoon Yolanda ). His family, friends, neighbours, home, village and possessions were all destroyed by this disaster. The only thing he had to be grateful for was the fact he is still breathing.
I can't begin to imagine what people like him, in the Philippine,s are having to go through but I find these stories about Typhoon Haiyan make me much more grateful for what I have. All the times we complain about, all the little things that make us stressed, sad or just think that we've had a bad day, think of the poor Philippines man. What may be a bad day to us, there is always someone in the world whose day has been worst than ours.

There is an online website where you can donate to the Philippines to help provide shelter clean water and food. One thing we can all do is pray for those who have lost everything the had and pray for those who lost there lives.
Be grateful of everyday of you have and treat each one like it's a blessing.
Thank you for reading :)
Enjoy the rest off your weekend!
