A simple gesture of kindness goes a long way
When Junalyn Esteban, then a graduating Applied Statistics student of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, shared a simple wish on our Wishing Wall, she admitted she was experiencing one of the most troublesome times of her teenage life.
“Nung time na ‘yun, medyo struggling po ako. Nagmo-mourn po ako sa pagkamatay ng father ko, and yung mother ko, wala na rin. Sobrang bigat, tapos graduating pa ako at busy sa examinations,” the 19-year-old Wisher from Pasay shared.
(That time [when I was writing my wish], I was struggling. I was mourning over the death of my father. I’m no longer with my mother as well. I was burdened as I was also graduating and there are many examinations I need to take.)
“Kaya naisip ko po na kahit simpleng gift lang, makapagpapagaan na ng loob,” she explained.
(That’s why I thought that even a simple gift could already help me ease my burden.)
Indeed, what she wrote was simple.
“Gusto ko lang po na may magbigay sa akin ng bouquet of roses (I hope somone can give me a bouquet of roses), because I have never received one. I will really appreciate and treasure it for the rest of my life. I think I deserve it, after all that I’ve been through lately.”
For Junalyn, sharing such aspiration was only a way to let her emotions out; she never hoped it will be fulfilled. This is why when her wish was granted, a sweet smile lighted up her face.
“Thank you po sa Wish FM! As in ngayon lang po ako nakareceive ng bouquet of flowers, so thank you po talaga. Sana marami pa yung wishes na ma-grant. Kahit simpleng gestures lang, malaki na yung magagawa para sa amin,” she excitingly said.
(Thank you, Wish FM! It really is my first time to receive a bouquetof flower, so thank you very much. I hope you can continue granting wishes. Even if it is only a simple gesture, it is already a big thing for us Wishers.)
Junalyn went home with more than just flowers in her arms, she brought along with her an unforgettable memory that we hope can keep her smiling as she faces life’s challenges in the future.
