My sister-in-law often sends me inspiring and motivational messages and this particular quote is truly uplifting.
Nobody has a perfect life... Nobody has everything the world can offer... Nobody can claim that he has nothing but only this much. Sometimes, we tend to seek more than we have in our hands. We aspire more than what we deserve, It's natural to dream big and reach for the highest peak of success but life may give us otherwise.
We may have the simplest of clothes that others may regard as pieces of rug... worthless, cheap and dirty but for us, they serve as the shield that protect our skin.
We may have foods on the table that others may regard as junks... tasteless, unappetizing and bland but they serve as the blessing that sustain strength in our body.
We may have a small house that others may regard as shanty... hapless, poorly and miserable but it serves as the shelter that harbor us from danger and harm brought by the outside world.
Whatever blessings we enjoy now... whether less or much, we have to be thankful and contented for others may have NOTHING but an empty hand.
"Ang hindi marunong magpasalamat...
ay walang karapatang tumanggap."
