another Monday morning

You know it's a typical Monday morning when you hear people in your household running around and annoyed at the smallest things. You wake up at the sound of their voices,and endlessly hear their rants and hear their complaints about anything imaginable. Ah, the life in a first-world country. And add to that the slow dropping of the temperature that can be used as an excuse to grumble at the wee hours of the morning.

But really, what do we have to complain? This maybe another typical Monday morning for us at this country, but for the Philippines, at this time of the year, is a new Monday morning for all of them. Everyone must be dreading for another busy and boring Monday but for them, this is a new day that they have been looking forward to ever since the tragedy that occurred Saturday.

Yes, we are only human. We can complain about anything that we want. We complain about Mondays and how we don't want to go to school or see our boss or our annoying colleagues. But once in a while, particularly at this time, we can try to look at the other side of things. We may not like this day, but others must have been welcoming this new day with open arms, for a new dawn has arrived for them and to continue picking up the pieces that were left behind. And that, I think, is something that we should be happy about, even if you wake up in a cold and dark morning.
