one of us is missing

now he’s gone. home does not feel like home this evening. missing him so much.

i did not want to go home after bringing him to the airport. started to clean his room & the kitchen as soon as we returned just to stop me from feeling the pain. now it does not even smell like him anymore …

yes, it is totally okay for me to let him let go, i am really happy about him making plans & starting to move … why does it hurt so much???

goodbyes

only 3 and a half weeks until he will leave. “my” son. only a few months ago i wanted him to start into his own life. now … i will miss him! remembering the tears i cried when at the age of almost 7 he spent the first weekend without me … (some weeks later i had learned to appreciate these weekends-with-dad, appreciated the freedom i had won.)

i have just read through my last year’s posts. the days & weeks before we left germany. remembering the basics: a place to sleep, fruit to eat, internet connection. & the three of us together. … from now on it will only be the two of us. for sure he will still be an important part of our familiy, of my life. only about 4,000 km away …

well. the two of us will go on travelling together … looking forward to our next house move in a few weeks. gratefully saying good-bye to this comfortable apartment, our home for the last 10 months. looking for new experiences. going on looking for our community. going on travelling.

memories

two and a half years ago one of my best friends left hamburg to emigrate to australia with her family. i still miss her so much. in her last weeks & days here we set up some special memories, like burying stones at one of our favourite places … planing to meet there again some day.

now it’s me leaving …

these days i often remember those weeks, understanding how she felt about leaving & starting in a new life. everything becomes different. moments with friends turn to very special memories. songs …

it’s also me now, leaving another best friend here. saying goodbye. tears & laughter …

i am so grateful we have met, thank you for being a part of my life!
