Fireworks

I just LOVE fireworks, they always made me happy.  Here’s a quick view from outside my bedroom window on the eve of December 31st.  I was awake till 2am just looking out the window.  Not thinking of anything else.  Just listening to the noise and admiring the view ( and wondering how can my daughter and hubby be sound asleep in this noise )

Hubby and I lit a few simple fire crackers called the “Dragon’s Serenity Fountain”” and some type of sparklers on a stick (see photo below)  before midnight just to entertain our lil’ bug.

The following morning we went to Baclaran church and attended the Sunday mass.  I spotted some street kids laughing loudly while sharing an old toy bike.  One of them constantly pulling and fixing the broken tire.  They made me stop and think of simple things I (or we ) should be thankful for.
