Without ado (ado is a newest word added to my vocabulary. It means unnecessary things. I just read this word here.) lets go and talk about what if I came from a rich family?
When I was young, I suffered from different hardships in life because our family is one among the indigent or poorest family in our barangay.
If I came from a rich family might be I have a perfect attendance is school. I don't like to absent from school before but there were times that our parents would ask us to absent so that we could weeds and harvest some corns so we will have money to buy rice. Sometimes I am crying but I have no choice.
If I came from a rich family might be I could buy delicious food in our canteen during recess time. But since we are poor, our classmates have 5.00 or 10.00 for their snacks while me having just 0.50 cents just to buy an ice candy and my mother will give me one stick of banana que as she is selling it in the canteen too.
If I came from a rich family might be I have a new dress and shoes during closing exercises and my parents will put up my medal. I don't need to wear my old clothes or no need to borrow some from our cousins.
If I came from a rich family might be I have cake, spaghetti and macaroni salad in my birthday. We grow up celebrating our birthday with thanksgiving to the Lord but we didn't experience to have cake and delicious food in our birthdays. Having a bihon with sardines will make us happy that day. We were able to cook spaghetti and macaroni salad for the first time when I got a job.
If I came from a rich family might be I enjoyed playing dolls when I was still young. I am 33 years old now but haven't experienced to have my own doll. My younger sister have her dolls before because her god mother is giving dolls as their gift for her during Christmas season.
If I came from a rich family might be I dont have a hard time in studying. Might be I don't need to suffer from being a working student just to finish my studies.
If I came from a rich family might be I didn't experience to be bullied by my classmates because of my unarrange teeth. Might be my parents could have afford for brazes to make my teeth straight.
If I came from a rich family might be we don't need to suffer living in a building with just have roof and half wall for two weeks because our aunt sold the lot where our small house located and it forced us to leave that place.
There are lots of what ifs in life. Those are my what if I came from a rich family when I was still young and suffering hardships and wanting different things. Those are just the simple wishes of a young Jen before. But when I grow up, I was thankful to God for being with us in those hard times. I was thankful enough to experience those things that made me strong and made me who am I today.
