Sometimes we take some things for granted just because they are always there.
When my family and I were in Batangas last week, we went through our usual routine of getting some coconuts.
With a long stick that has a hook at the end, anyone could pick a coconut right from its tree.
I thought to myself, isn’t this a luxury? I felt so lucky that I was living in a country where it was this easy to get coconuts.
With no charge, straight from the tree, I can get a taste of these sweet coconuts.
How many times have we taken a step back, looked at our beautiful country, and realized that we should be grateful that we live in a world such as this?
How many times have we appreciated life’s simple joys? How many times have we appreciated coconuts? How many times have we felt grateful that our country is abundantly blessed with the tree of life?
 The coconut tree is often called the tree of life because it has multiple functions. You can drink its juice. You can eat the fruit. You can use the tree to build a house.
