I’ve heard people talk about the ‘sacrifices’ we’ve made to move to PNG, but I think more is required from those who are left behind.
I hope you don’t really feel left behind though a vast ocean separates us. When God made me he gave me a part of you. I carry that with me – regardless of distance.
But, I often feel sorry. Sorry I can’t help you more often. Sorry you can’t see your grandkids as much as you wish. Sorry I can’t be more supportive.
Perhaps that’s why its harder to be left behind. You didn’t get a choice in our moving plan. You simply were asked to support us through a very big transition.
But, that’s what you do best. You support – even when it’s not in your best interest. You love when loving is hard. And you care. Always.
At least for today, I hope the distance is shortened. I hope in these words you are reminded that no one is left behind.
I love you, mum, and thanks for everything you’ve done to care for me and my family.
