A Beautifully Painful Place

On the 31st of this month, Henry will be off on a long trip to Ilocos again. It's a very beautiful place (although I've never been there yet) and he'll be back around th 4th or the 5th of August. He'll be away for like a week, which is like an eternity for me.

He hasn't even gone away yet but I'm already beginning to be sad. Just imagining that I won't be able to see his face when I get home from a stressful day at work or wake up with his kiss and his embrace during the night is enough to make me cry. There'll be no one to prepare my meals when I wake up and my packed lunch I bring for work.

The money he'll earn will be enough to pay for Keisha's tuition that's due this August. It'll be a great help for our budget. But must we sacrifice time away from each other for our kids. I'll just have to start counting the days before he comes home.

Tomorrow I'll be preparing his clothes for the trip and ironing his shirts as well. With a heavy heart I'll be packing his clothes and I'll eagerly wait for his arrival home.
