Coleen Garcia opened up about the ordeal her husband, Billy Crawford, has faced since he arrived from their trip to Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Crawford got a flat tire in Pasig and was using his phone as a flashlight when it was snatched by kids, she said in an Instagram post on Monday, Sept. 30. She added that her husband experienced other “negative things” on that day.

Dubai completely exceeded my expectations, and we can’t wait to come back to complete our long To-do-in-Dubai list! But when @billycrawford got back, he got a flat tire in Pasig. While he was changing it himself and using his phone as a flashlight on the ground, some kids decided to steal it. That was only one of the many negative things that happened to him on that day. Many. Trying not to let it get to us, but Billy hasn’t had a phone (no messaging, no social media) since he got back, and it’s been challenging for him because of work. Doesn’t it suck when something tries to steal your joy? It seems like the happier we are, the harder the enemy tries to sabotage it. When you know you’re on the right path—the right attitude, the right mindset—don’t allow anything to bring you down. Choosing to be happy and grateful NO MATTER WHAT, because that’s actually what God wants us to do. Rejoice and give thanks in ALL circumstances. 🙂 Siya na ang bahala sa kanila, at siya na rin ang bahala sa atin. TWO TRUTHS: 1. There will always be something to complain about. 2. There will always be something to be grateful for. How do you choose to feel and think today? 💕

“Trying not to let it get to us, but Billy hasn’t had a phone (no messaging, no social media) since he got back, and it’s been challenging for him because of work,” she said.

Garcia chose to use the incident as a teaching moment, stating that one can still choose to be grateful despite the circumstances.

“When you know you’re on the right path—the right attitude, the right mindset—don’t allow anything to bring you down. Choosing to be happy and grateful NO MATTER WHAT, because that’s actually what God wants us to do,” she said.

There is, indeed, much to be grateful for. The happy couple has been traveling together for the past year—including a trip to Texas, where Crawford spent part of his childhood—after they married in April 2018.  /ra
