I went to Ninoy Aquino International Airport twice this week.
First, to send off my husband back to our host country after visiting me for 10 days. It was a big blessing that he came and took care of me while I burned candles to keep up with the readings and assignments for my MA program.
Then, I went back yesterday, very early in morning, to meet my son briefly for breakfast during his lay-over before flying down to our home city.
Weee!!!! That's my young man there! He left our host country at around midnight and arrived Manila at 4:30 AM. "I can't believe I'm sending my son to university now. I miss him already", says the message my husband sent to me before he and the girls sent him off to the airport.
It was a mixed emotion for me to see him again after a month being away, and yet it was for only few hours because he needed to catch his flight and I also need to go back to school for my class that day.
I sent my Pa a text message to confirm that his dear grandson is arriving shortly. He texted back, then greeted me "Happy Mother's Day".
