A Dream Come True!

I kissed my kids goodbye. 

They were sleeping when I left them...

Funny, it happened like five years ago and yet just thinking about not knowing what happened the day they woke up without me by their side, just makes me teary-eyed.

Later, I asked Mymy, our eldest, what happened that day, she didn't answer she just cried - remembering! 

She was 5 years old then, while Mimoi, one year old.

Thanks to Facebook for photos, Skype and Yahoo Messenger for video calls...

But still, the truth was, I missed a year of their lives.

Nothing could compensate that!

So, seeing them again after one year was a real blessing for me!

  6. It's difficult to live away from your family, much more for a parent to their kids but the wonders of technology makes the world a smaller place. Of course, nothing beats being with your love ones.

  8. This was actually a painful experience for me to read. The first part I mean. I'm glad you were able to see them again.

  9. If only there was a way that we will not have to leave our families, we will all probably take advantage of it. The nice thing however about going away for a while is seeing the people you love when you return.
