Last week, most of the bloggers I know talked about compassion. It was called 1000 Speak wherein a group of 1000 bloggers, writers, and artists around the world speak for compassion. I'm sure it's never too late to write about it so I decided that last week's theme should be COMPASSION.
I must be living under a rock because I didn't know there's something going on like that -- which brings me to the fact that we need to get the message out there all the more. I've read so many compassion stories though. They were all very inspiring! Some even brought tears to my eyes.
Flashback to our flight from Cebu, I remembered my husband let an elderly foreigner go ahead of us in the check in counter even though we were there first. The reason was obvious but I was already a bit irritated because I was carrying a heavy bag and I had to run around for Reiko so I wanted to be checked in right away so we could all sit and rest. However, I thought that it was just the right thing to do.
So when that stranger man offered for us to use his baggage limit, I felt like it was the universe's way of telling us that what goes around comes around. And I really believe that! We didn't ask for it but it was given!
