“Ber” months.

Does the start of the “ber” months bring you hope and optimism?

I just have noticed that today is 15th of SeptemBER. Usually everyone recognizes this month because it signifies that Christmas is coming. Maybe this year has been a roller coaster ride for us and it is certainly not lacking in trials and challenges, but do you look forward the last few months of the year more positively now that Christmas is just around the corner?

Some of us the start of the month of September brings a glimmer of hope and faith and there are more of us, OFW just take it as an ordinary day.

Working in a Muslin Country which has no Christmas public holiday is really a gloomy celebration for us. Some are still working on the 25th day. Lucky are those who have an employer who knows how to respect the culture of others.

As for me I have been celebrating the Christmas away from home for 5 years and it will add another this year. I truly miss celebrating it with my family and I almost forgot how it feels to be. This is the real situation. Painful and yet we need to be brave.

  1. WHEN YOU ARE LONELY, GO OUT WITH GOOD FRIENDS, IN SPIRITED PLACES, WITH HEALTHY FOODS AND NON TOXIC DRINKS. THAT WILL SURELY RID YOU FROM SOLITUDE. IF THERE ARE NON- GOOD LOOKING FRIENDS AROUND RECITE THE ROSARY AND I AM SURE THEY WILL EVAPORATE. AND IF YOU HAVE PLENTY OF MONEY ON THESE BER MONTHS SEND IT TO THE PHILIPPINES C/O TO YOUR FATHER SO HE CAN SUSTAIN DAILY LOTTO BEATING. AFTER ALL, IT WOULD BE A CHARITABLE ACT.
