Far from our Home … but close to our Hearts.

Typhoon Yolanda Aftermath

Typhoon Yolanda Aftermath

Typhoon Yolanda hit last week with a fury. The reports have just started coming out and the devastation is heartbreaking.

Here in Kalinga we had a rainy afternoon on the day the typhoon hit – nothing more.

I am so thankful that we are all okay here. That our house is still standing. Our loved ones safe and sound.

It is almost too much to bear when I think “what if we were the ones with our lives torn apart?” So, I try not to think about it.

But it is still there every morning on the television and radio and on Facebook when I open my computer. Families torn apart, missing loved ones, lives destroyed.

I don’t know what my role should be in this particular disaster. But I know that I should not ignore it.

So today I am dedicating this simple post on my simple blog to all of those families that are still reeling, still searching and still grieving. My heart is with you.
