Being Grateful!

Hello again. I hope you are all well and recently, i've just realised how lucky I am! I'm British but half my family live in the UK and the other half live in the Philippines. Recently, it's been my birthday, Halloween, bonfire night and everything been good. I've got an education, social life and living a country that doesn't have extreme weather. 

The other, if you are not aware, the Philippines have been having extreme weather: typhoon,earthquake and flooding in just the past few months. Recently, it's been a typhoon that has left thousands of people homeless and the death total is raising. 
Flooding that was a few months ago

This is from the Typhoon that happened over the weekend

This has put me in the biggest reflective mood ever. I've thought I was having the worst weekend because of one little thing but in the long run of everything, my little problem was completely nothing compared to this. I wish I could just fly out their and just help everything in the country. So, to you guys, just consider yourself lucky with everything. Your problems are nothing compared to some people. We are all so lucky and just be happy really because compared to some people across the world, we are living in luxury. Hope you all had a good sunday!In the UK, they were covering the news with headlines of extreme weather warning and it's going to be the worst storm in 50 years. The 'storm' was literally heavy rain, nothing like this! I've got family living here and I have no clue if they are okay or no contact with them as they have no electricity. However, today I had a late happy birthday from one of my cousins, she some how got electricity and just thought of me.
