After five months being together, finally, my hubby is back to work again. Another nine months of struggles of being away from him and I already know it's never going to be easy.

My son is one of my energizers and motivations to be brave while alone in our home taking care of him. The first night without him, our home felt very quiet. My tears were pouring down my face. But still, I am thankful because God gave me a man who's willing to sacrifice and endure the distance for me and for his son.

I know time will fly fast and this feeling of emptiness will turn into happiness in God's time.
Praying for him is my duty every time I  praye and he knows that being as his wife, I am always here for him and his son waiting faithfully until the day he will come home.

The life of an ofw family is full of challenges and sacrifices because it's all about their future -  preparing a good life for their family.

Though right now I am missing my hubby so much, I'd like to just keep myself busy with other things.

Saying goodbye to the one you love is the hardest thing to do. Even for how many times you have to do it, it will never get easier. It is the hardest thing to say goodbye to someone who means the world to you.

Bon voyage mahal!


  1. It is really hard to be away from your family. I feel you because I grew up without my mom beside me because she needs to work. I'm just thankful that my husband is not an OFW, hindi ko alam kung kakayanin ko na LDR.

  2. It is really tough to be away from your husband. Its a good thing that you have a relationship with God. You can run to him when times are hard. I can just imagine the difficulties. =) I pray that you keep being strong through these tough times. Thank God for technology. =)

  3. virtual hugs... ang hirap if your partner is away no? Nakakalungkot, but you have to be strong.

  4. Awww... sending virtual hugs momshie! I am a clingy person and medyo dependent in some ways, parang di ko kaya ang ldr. I agree, occupied yourself with other things para di mo masyado ma-miss, di mo mamamalayan uuwi na ulit si husband.

  5. Sobrang hirap talaga mawalay sa mga mahal natin sa buhay. Buti nga ngaun madame ng means of communications hindi tulad dati. I am also a daughter of an ofw for more than 20yrs na!

  6. Awww, I can feel how much you miss him. I can understand how hard it must be. You guys are so strong to be able to endure this. Keep the faith. You'll be together again in no time.

  7. Five months seems too long and yet lemuel is gone again for another trip for his family. I truly admire you both for staying strong. More power, besh.
