This trending story of a netizen named Aiza Montablan from who shared her own blessed experience with a woman who was a ‘blessing-in-disguise’ inside a hospital last May 25 is currently making its rounds on the internet.
As stated in the news report of Trending News Portal, the said netizen’s sicked grandma really needs to undergo certain lab tests when they went for a medical check-up at St. Frances Cabrini Medical Center located in Sto. Tomas, Batangas. Worse luck, the money that they have with them wasn’t sufficient as it was only enough for their transportation expenses and consultation fee.
However, a certain Rhona Laurel Arcillas, the hospital clerk on duty at that time, was really a blessing in disguise. She was the one who assisted the netizen and her grandma for their check-up. When she heard that they didn’t bring enough money, she gave them 1,000php out of her own pocket.
In an online interview with PEP, Rhona shared what went through her mind during that time and why she decided to help the two women despite not knowing them personally.
“Kasi alam ko din po yung pakiramdam na nagigipit dahil nararanasan ko din po yun (I knew the feeling of having financial difficulties because I’ve also experiencing it). Kaya kung meron po man akong maitutulong para po makabawas sa nararamdaman at isipin nila (So if ever I had something to help them lessen their feelings and burdens).
“Especially sa kagaya po niya may sakit at matanda na, kaya mas ginusto ko po na tulungan siya… Pera lang naman po yun pwede ko pa pong kitain ulit (Especially in her case that she’s sick and old, so I decided to helped her. It is just money and I could earn it again).”
She also told PEP how she felt saying, “Masaya po at sana po mas marami pa po yung ma-inspire at tumulong sa kapwa natin lalo na po sa mga nangangailangan (I am happy and hoping that there will also be many who’ll be inspired to help other people mostly those who are needy).”
Here is the netizen’s viral post:
She is undoubtedly a real blessing from heaven, especially in today’s context of society wherein war is unending and ‘peace’ is just Utopian concept.
