“Kapag sinasabi ng katulong namin, ‘Ma’am wala na tayong bigas.’ Hindi na ako gumagamit ng wala word, eh. Ang sinasabi ko, ‘Hindi, ganito ang sasabihin mo, ‘Ma’am, kailangan na nating bumili ng bigas,’” she said.
(Whenever our helper says, “Ma’am, we don’t have rice anymore,” I do not use the word “none/nothing” anymore. What I tell her is, “No, this is what you should say, ‘Ma’am, we already need to buy rice.'”)
Ledesma also shared several Bible verses it stress her point about positivity. She shared Philippians 4:13 (“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”); Hebrews 13:6 (“So we can confidently say, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?'”); and Nahum 1:7 (“The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him.”).
