WAHM & Marriage


If you are a friend from Facebook,  you may have seen my post about Dane leaving again to go back to Saudi Arabia and work. He was on vacation for 42 days and it was one of the happiest days of my life.

But just as things in this have to end, so was his vacation.  And so our journey for another year away has begun yet again. Good thing I’m not the only one, my friend’s husband also had to leave again about a month before Dane left.

We don’t know how and when this will end but I hope that this situation is going to end. I did cry a few tears again as it felt like going through the same hardship for the second time.  Although I have to say the pain is a lot more manageable now compared to his first time away for me, for him, he said this was more painful than his first contract.

And to make things worse,  out of the blue, Nate would just say, “bakit umalis si Papa sa Saudi? Joke lang naman yung mga away namin e. Miss ko na sya, gusto ko pa naman sya i-hug. Love ko yon si Papa e kahit nag-aaway kami.” It breaks my heart every time he says it.

I looked outside as I write this.  In my view is a beautiful mountain that we see every day.  Every time I look at it I have a feeling of serenity inside me.  Reminds me to keep believing, to keep hoping,  and to keep praying that no matter how long,  this will still come to an end one day.

As to when that day will come, only God knows for now.

  1. Awww….My husband goes out of town/out of the country for work from time to time and at first, nahirapan ako mag adjust. Eventually I accepted na it's really part of his calling to go out on missions without us. But our faith is that magkakasama kami someday. It's not the same as your situation of course, but I get you. I pray that God will grant you wisdom to know what to do to speed this up.

  2. Ang matured talaga ni Nate sa age niya. Joke lang naman kasi yun, bakit naman sineryoso ni daddy. hehehe! Ganyan din ako pag umaalis si hubby pero iniisip ko na lang, para rin sa amin yun. 🙂

  3. I'm sad for you that your family has to go through this. But I guess we all have to do what we gotta do. I pray that this will end for your family sooner rather than later and that you'll find a way to be together na all the time.

  4. I am looking forward for that, sis. I know this will soon end. Well, hopefully, very soon talaga. But it's OK, medyo wala na ang lungkot, medyo nakaadjust na kahit papano.
