“There are moments which mark your life. Moments when you realise nothing will ever be the same and time is divided into two parts, before this and after this.” – Unknown
Oh how time flies! A young mom with 1 ½ year old boy wondering what future will bring. A people’s power brought sad and good news but ours was unfortunate, young dad lost his job. A young family caught up with uprising, unstable employment and unable to sustained for house rent… she left overseas.
Two years contract to have a small house and open up a clinic of her own
She work hard to pay for placement fees and bought a land to build a house.
Homesickness sets in… dad came and followed by their son.
The two years became four years…
Dad didn’t finish his job contract and went back home.
No future in this company, will look for a better one.
Mom and son stayed.
Working overseas will help finish building the house and the clinic.
Dad came back
Four years… six years
Dad found another job and went back home again.
Better salary…better opportunity
Six years became ten years
Another son bring joy and happiness
Mom has better position, better salary, house done, children in good school
Dad left again for a better job, better salary and better opportunity
Twelve years….fifteen years…
Twenty years …
Mom did post graduate…career bloomed ..children happy…better education
Dad not happy…company closing down
A business of my own is better
And the day came, he left again…
Sons follow your dream… so she work harder…and… harder
a single parent… a single provider… a career woman
Dad got his own dream… a business of his own
While mom’s dream clinic is on hold
Twenty five years…
Trust gone…respect gone…marriage collapsed…
Letting go is a gift you owed to yourself
Twenty nine years later…
Children finished their studies…gone to pursue their dreams
Mom is alone again…
Twenty-nine years of a beautiful struggle.
to be continued…
