Hoping that My Son Will Return Soon

Translated…

Around the Lunar New Year, my son went to Sri Lanka on a trip alone, since the moment he got on the plane, I’d worried, nonstop, but gladly, he’d told me, that he would update on Facebook, to keep me posted, IF internet is available, and he will buy the mobile internet cards too, he’d posted photographs on Facebook, write a short paragraph or two, to keep me updated on his travels. And so, every day, checking his movement online became a must-do for me.

And now, my youngest son works as an international volunteer in Gueizhou, and, as I’d googled the temperatures locally, it showed from three to zero, and, even though they’re working as an entire group, I’d still worry, that he may NOT have enough clothes.

But, in the conditions of NO online services, NO connections, and NO contacts, I can only tell myself, give the child a new experience in life, and, everything he goes through will be a lesson learned. I’d kept my desires to call up his group to inquire, just kept my missing him to myself, hoping, that the day of his return will come soon.

So, you’d let go, even though, you’re still worried, but you KNWE, that they’d have to STRUCK out on their own, and so, you’d forced yourself, to STOP worrying, because your kids are OLD enough…
