Empty Nest Syndrome
I know someday our children will leave us soon for a better life, to work or even get married, we did to0. When we were younger we were all excited to work abroad, to earn a living and to find greener pastures . I remember my mom and aunt and cousins going with me to the airport when I was leaving to go to the US to work. I was the first in our family because I graduated first, my older brother was taking up medicine so he was still in his proper. I can remember smiling and laughing while leaving for the plane. The last I saw my mom was her trying to wipe her tears. She was still young maybe about my age now so she could travel back home to the province alone. My 3 brothers was still with her. But once I got on the plane and sat down. Reality hit me. As soon as the plane was taking off, the tears started to flow and just wouldn't stop. My seatmate just smiled at me and tried to comfort me. I lasted 5+ years without coming home.
Now another empty nest feeling will be happening soon. My only daughter and child will be leaving soon, I knew she will also be going abroad, It would be a waste of her citizenship if she does not go.
Tears will start to flow again for me...having her by my side for 28 years is hard. At least my mom had my brothers. Me no one not even my mom because she can barely remember.
Oh well I will just have to be strong and spend more time blogging . And pray.
These are our pictures need to take more before she goes.
