I am just simply grateful to have the chance to live for another day. And for me no blessing comes bigger than waking up in the morning and finding yourself surrounded by people who means the world for you. That’s more than enough for me and I might not ask for else.
And I value that to the core. This morning, my sister, made her way to Germany for a short study program. I feel so proud and happy for my sister, but I can’t neglect the feeling that it breaks my heart to pieces to know that my sister will be leaving me for couple weeks. I try not to be emotional, rational instead. I keep telling to myself that she is doing this for good reasons, for her own benefits, for her own future. But still, she’s the treasure of my life, and I miss her already, even the second after she’s boarding to the plane.
I’ve lived away for long time from my family, the last one was 8 months in Thailand, but it’s completely different today. I am left. My sister is going to a far away place in Europe for the first time, for long time, while in fact she’s never been abroad longer than 2 weeks and the only country she has ever been to is only 4 hours away by plane.
And if I remember this again, it drives me nuts! I freak out and worry too much. But someone to calm down the situation is urgently needed in the family! My parents seem harder to deal with this. They cried soon after my sister got on board. I wasn’t with them, but their eyes’ bag told so once I arrived home and found both sit on the couch and still sobbed like a baby.
When I tried to rest myself in my bedroom at second floor, my mom knocked the door. She asked me to go down with her to calm down my Dad. I actually giggled in heart to see how cute my Dad is when he cries! He sobs with tears and shaky lips like a kid losing his ice cream. And somehow it’s funnier when my mom started to cry again after she found dad shed another tear. It’s cute, but at the same time heart-warming. My dad would be the last person on earth to ever say “I love you” in person as he’s extremely rigid as a person, but now he cries like a little baby. He’s just being a father, a father who loves his child sincerely. My mom was sitting next to him and making the rest of the night getting more dramatic.Oh, parents!
So there I was, tried to be composed and act cool. Nothing would make them feel safer, but a prayer. So, I invited them to pray together and repetitively mention in the prayer that God’s hand works on her, she’s and will always be fully protected and safe and sound until the day she returns home and joins our lil gang again.
I just checked again her itinerary, she’s supposed to be in Vietnam right now waiting for her connecting flight to Germany which will leave at 11.30 pm. If everything goes smooth, she should be in Frankfurt at 11.30 am (GMT+7). Hoah, still a long flight for you, and your first experience. I am sure you’ll be fine! Nothing to worry once God works.
Now a new journey of life is in front of your eyes. Make the best of it and don’t disappoint yourself. I know you will nail it as long as you believe in yourself. I know you won’t read this as you don’t even know I own a blog, but I am sure, an angel is sent by God to deliver this story at midnight to you right now. God bless you, baby!
PS: Today is kind of the best day ever happen in this year. So much good news happened in only a day! My sister making her own way to Germany is one thing, but I still have some more to tell! Will tell you with the next post! Now, have a good sleep y’all!!
