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.
