Grateful Fridays – 22 July 2016

Beating the clock to catch Friday’s end…

This week has been about rushing here and there to catch whatever it was we were chasing. I used to have a healthy fear of driving on the main road that cuts through the metropolis but now I feel like I am a seasoned pro battling my way through the buses, SUVs, tiny cars, motorbikes, trucks and people on the highway. I feel like I finally earned my license to drive in the Philippines.

So this week, I am grateful for:

  1. The 10-year old car that still runs smoothly even though it is starting to look a little beat-up..
  2. Freedom to drive…I know there are countries where women aren’t allowed to drive. What freedom we enjoy as women here in the Philippines…
  3. Money for fuel…
  4. Protection from drivers who act like they own the road…
  5. Obedient passengers aka my children who don’t complain much about my driving and simply turn over and take a nap…

Enjoy the weekend, folks. We’ve got lots of rain in our part of the world. Rainy season is here…
