Reflection Paper by Ma. Rina S. Flor

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”
-Mother Teresa

A day of extending the service of love was once again showed by the grantees to the children of Brgy. Baras, Sto. Niño. It was a day full of happiness that the grantees, though they didn’t have expensive things to share, and fancy gifts to give, didn’t fail the children experience the feeling of being loved through sharing with them the joy and laughter that no amount of money could ever buy.

Subsequently, the only thing that emanated to the grantees was to open the gates for them by sharing with the learners the idea that both sides share the same sentiments specially before. The grantees disclosed with them their past stories before they became grantees, the grantees wanted the learners to understand that in every problem there will always be a solution, that there is always a chance for the
