This afternoon was rather special as I was able to meet up with my little girl Nina; she recently returned to her village in Viet Nam to attend the wedding of her cousin and reconnect with her Mom, Dad and brother whom she hasn't seen for over a year.
She has been terribly homesick especially when her Dad was in hospital following a motor bike accident and his slow recovery afterwards, it was a very difficult time for her; I would have liked to have paid for her air fare home but I couldn't afford it.
She is a sweet, brave young girl travelling all that way without her lovely husband who recently started a new job and was unable to have the time off work to go with her...but he phoned her every day... ♥
What a lovely home-coming for them all, seeing each other again after all of this time..I can just imagine the smiles, kisses, hugs and giggles just like this afternoon when we I saw her again...and no doubt tears of joy.
Nina has been gone for three weeks , it was a good opportunity for her to spend some time with her Mom, Dad, younger brother and members of her extended family and relatives from America who attended the wedding ... I am sure they are missing her already.
Nina dear it is wonderful to have you back, you will always have two homes... your sweet nature and beautiful smile were missed by me and many others ... ♥
I forgot to tell you all that for Mothers' Day, Nina made a collage of photos of us both, including some yellow and mauve flowers and framed it as a very thoughtful gift for me...I have it in my room amongst some treasured photos of my children and grandchildren. :)
