Home Under The Bridge

Dear Raees,

Did you know that there are people in KL who don't have any house to go home to? They don't become homeless by choice, of course. But life hasn't been easy for them that they cannot afford to stay in a nice house with a roof under their head.

Mommy was reading today's news when I came across one article that really strucked me hard. A homeless family with a child as young as you! They've been staying there for almost half a year already!


While you have a nice comfortable crib to sleep in with the aircond and fan since the day you were born, that little girl was staying under the bridge with her family since she could hardly crawl! While you had more than enough toys to play with and watch your favourite Sesame Street DVDs on the flat screen TV, that little girl didn't have any of that luxury. Who knows what her favourite toys are, or if she has any. To make matters worse, she isn't at the best of health.

Thank God someone out there is generous enough to offer a house for them to live in...

My point is, Raees, always remember to be thankful for everything that you have around you. It may not seem like a big deal to you but it sure is something huge for the less fortunate kids, like that little girl.


Love,
Mommy

I read about this too :-(.....in a way, its a good reminder to all of us of what we have in life....that most of the time we tend to take for granted....

Lucky for the young family, that they will have a much better place to stay after this....what more with such a small baby...

I heard they reunited with their mother and many have reached out to help them live a better life. Alhamdulillah.

Yeah, always bersyukur with what we have :)
