Bittersweet memories!

Everything has an end. Even the long and wonderful vacation in my home country Philippines. The only consolation is we have memories to carry with us when we flew back to the U.S. We had a whole lot of photos that we can look back which chronicles the fun things that we've experienced from that trip. I'd say whoever invented the camera is awesome and the coolest guy ever. If not for him, I wouldn't have been able to capture the final moments with my mama and papa at the airport, a few minutes before we had to board the plane. I remember this wasn't a happy one. I didn't know what to tell my mom to make the tears stop. She was hurting inside. Well, I was too. We all were. I was just probably good with hiding my real emotions when in front of the camera, as you can see with my charming smile in the photograph. But once on the plane, I couldn't bring myself to stop crying. It was a comfort being held by Jeff while telling me everything is going to be alright. I've always liked hearing that line from him. It sends a certain message of light and hope whenever something is bothering me. Next to God, my husband is really my source of strength and love. With him, my every struggle is less painful. While it's always bitter to bid goodbye, I hold on to the sweet hope that in the near future, I'll be able to come back and see my family again.

Goodbyes are the hardest thing in the world!

What sweet words about your husband. I'm sure he appreciates them!

i hate goodbyes, but i'm used it it na! hahaha. it always has something in our throat that's very hard to swallow whenever we leave the airport. katawa-katawa pa, pero pag talakod na, labi na jud ng pag-take off sa plane, sakit kaayo sa dughan oi! pero saon man jud, ana man jud ang life! :)

hi jenn awww i know how you feel. being married to an air force guy we have never been in the same state as family. i hope they will come live or visit with you soon.
i have a great healthy cookbook my fav out of them all it is younger (thinner) you diet. its great because you take this test in it that tells you if you need more GABA, dopamine, acetylcholine, serotonin or a combo of them. example.... low dopamine= big belly fat... i have a soup recipe on my blog the kale and bean its for all brain types not only that but the soup is great we had ours with sour cream when we served it... it explains why and what it is good for your brain type. ..the pineapple upside down french toast is my fav so far :)it even gives you a swap box if you need more GABA, dopamine, acetylcholine or serotonin or again a combo... lol its really easy to understand fi promise :)

At least you have wonderful memories in your heart to keep, Jenn. These are the things that we makes us smile when we reminisce and look back. It's definitely treasured.
