Captivating year-ender in Sitio Kati-Kati Guimaras

Mending the people in grace is beyond compare.

To “trust the prompting of once heart” was what I’ve been asking people to practice for the year 2019. I believe this was the path destined to be taken by Hugging Horizons.

Apart from blogging, there has been a voice from within asking this platform to extend its arms and reach out to as many as it could. Last Dec. 28, 2019 I was then given a chance by this prestigious travel concierge brand EON travel and Tours to take part and experience gift giving to  Sitio Kati- Kati, Guimaras.

We were surrounded by “Ati” community, particularly an adopted tribe of Ms. Shanie Tiu the person behind the recent success of EON Travel and Tours.

Rey Jadoc was an exceptional person devoting his time and effort reflecting the success of the company for the past recent years. Rey was with me during the gift giving journey.

Bhev was assigned to keep me entertained during the trip, we had a few chats about life, travel and alike.

We were also joined by some JCI regatta members who gladly gave their presence and traveled with us to make everything else possible.

Below is the program set for them to participate and enjoy that day:

That day everyone was sent to deliver happiness to the “Ati” community, I’ve been joining gift giving back then but only that day was I able to witness a group rich in love with overflowing patience.

The venue has no stable electricity (except for some houses), with unfinished roads for traveling, so untouched. The people from the community were showered by innocence that they were less worried by the problems of the world outside, their days were mostly composed of waking up, eating the right amount of food and sleeping safely at night. Nothing dramatic, nothing like what the most of us are going through.

We might be sent to do the gift giving yet I believe we were the ones who receieved a priceless present—the gift of wisdom and grattitude.

We left that day with the wisdom to allow God’s spirit to lead us in everything we do and a heart overflowing with grattitude for every single thing that we have now.

The richest things that could buy our dreams, the power, fame and all other temporary matters brought by this material world isn’t of any value without our God.

We have been blessed more than our hands could grasp. A healthy mind and body, a beautiful family these alone is priceless and we should always be grateful for that.

Thank you EON travel & tours for giving me the chance to do what my heart has been yearning for the longest time.

With love, I’m ending this year with happiness and virtual hugs!
