For the past 20 years I missed births, engagements, weddings, birthdays…
That’s part of the package of living away from our own country.
I don’t regret my choices.
Wandering around the world has given me so much!
And I love all the countries where I’ve lived so far.
Little did I know that the worst was yet to come.
2020 was a dreadful year for many different reasons.
Unfortunately, 2021 is already a tough one too.
I think God is challenging me.
Everything happens for a reason.
So they say…
I often miss my family and friends but now is different.
Guilt keeps chasing me.
I should be there.
My heart shrinks every day.
I try to keep the faith but sometimes it’s so hard.
Having this blog helps me moving on.
Believe it or not.
Whenever I read one of your comments I feel blessed.
If only I could…
Lately, my life is a frame of suppositions.
A puzzle of missing pieces.
And time is my most feared enemy.
I’ll get there, eventually.
