I always tell my kids a story of my life when I was growing up. I told them that they are so lucky because they have many things that I never had when I was a kid, not even a toy. All of our toys are made up from what we see in our surroundings. Despite that though, I have a very memorable childhood as my parents were always there for us. We did not have any fancy things like kids has nowadays but we were contented and happy.
When I was about 14 years old, there was a super typhoon that hit our region and the said typhoon created a massive tidal wave. It wiped away our house and all the house in our coastal area. We lost everything, all that was left is the clothing that we were wearing that night. It was a very tough times for my family, we did not know what to do because in my country, government does not really help much compared to the government here in the US. In God's grace, we managed to come back up and started all over again. I did not go to school on that school year but the next year, a family offered to help me. I do believe that God works in a very mysterious way. You just need to have faith and believe in yourself and everything will come to place. We all have fears and doubts in doing things but if you persevere and do your part, it's possible.
