Give and receive

Last Tuesday, I learned that one of my professors was in the hospital. I thought of donating to the law student government. I went to their room and gave them Php 500 ($12.50). For me, that's a lot of money because it's almost the equivalent of one-fourth of my weekly allowance of Php 2,000 ($50). The P500 I gave could have been my food for two to three days.

I usually give P500 when the person is someone I know or when there is a big cause or emergency. I'm amazed that I can give such a big amount even though I have limited personal cash. Maybe it just shows that we can thrive even if we have so little. Of course, when we have more money, we ought to give more.

Get well soon, professor, and God bless!
