Left Behind | Happy Mother’s Day Mum Ford

Posted by Craig on May 9, 2010

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.
