Today I feel so blessed, because we finally paid our debt to my partner's sibling's and to my parent too.
Why do we need to borrow or lend some money to my partner's sibling and my parent? What is the reason behind that certain amount? Well I will gonna share you the story of what had happened.
Way back 2021, December 16, where the super Typhoon Odette hit the province of Southern Leyte, we are so affected that time,it was so devastated. The wind is so strong, and we almost died that time as well, and if it wasn't because of our neighbor who care about us that time,maybe we are all dead. I just so thankful that Ate Vivian save us from near death.
So after the typhoon, all of our belongings,appliances and some stuffs was get wet, we weren't able to save our things that time, but ourselves only. And we have to start from zero again, it was so painful, and so stressful and we really don't know what to do. My partner's computer set for work was also destroy, his 2 monitors was cracked, and his system unit was also soaked from water that enters our room. We feel so stress and don't know where to start.
So we ask for help from his parents,if we could stay with them for the meantime, because the apartment the we are renting that time was also destroy, luckily they agreed, and it was a miracle for us that their house is still ok, even if it was surrounded by so many tall coconut trees. God is really good all the time.🙏
Since we don't have enough money that time, we need to make a tight budgeting, because we also need to share for foods with my in-laws.
After 2 months my partner's Manager chatted him that he need to go back to work as soon as possible, but that moment he need to replace his computer set first and we also need to find a place where he can continue working because in our town we still don't have electricity,and internet connection that time. It takes almost 4 months before the electricity finally restored. And since we don't have money,we need to ask for help to my parent and his siblings
So,that is the reason why we need to lend some money to his siblings, and to my parents,we used the money for the apartment down payment and it cost 7k, we also hired a multi-cab going here in Bato that cost us again 2k, he also use some for the fare going to Cebu for the replacement of his computer,some for his pocket money,and the remaining amount, we used it for our budget until my partner got his salary again.
We are so thankful and grateful to our family who help us during our lowest point, they never hesitate to help us. We were so lucky with our family,because they were there when the times that we needed them the most, they stay our side in times of joy and even support us during tough times. And we thank to our Almighty God that he guide us and he never leave us while we facing the challenges in life.
So before I will going to end this,I want to leave you with this quote that according to
Family are the one who will love and support us unconditionally.
I think that is all for today. Thank you for your precious time.🤗
