Sunshine after the rain

So it's been several days since Metro Manila and nearby provinces had been hit by the Southwest Monsoon ("Hanging Habagat") that brought on floods that caused a lot of devastation especially in those hard-hit areas. I myself wasn't able to go to work from Tuesday to Thursday because, coming from Sampaloc and going to Eastwood, the main thoroughfares that I would be passing through were heavily flooded.

Alas, on Friday, the sun was already shining and I was finally able to go back to work. While on my way to Cubao (this was the first time I went out of the house since the floods), I realized that when you see the sun finally shining after having a few gloomy days (which, to be honest, is quite an understatement in our case), you can't help but firmly believe that there's always a silver lining... That God hasn't forsaken us, that the devastation we have survived from was merely a test of true faith.

I just wish I had taken a photo of when the sunlight made me smile that day.
