Today marks the 8th year since I set foot in the American soil. Thank God to that for giving me the opportunity to experience what it is like to live here in the land of milk and honey far away from home. Yes, 8 years of wonderful life together with my husband and my little children.
I could not ask for a better place to live with my family but here, although homesickness is still my biggest enemy in this country. For some reason it never leave me alone. When it strikes, I feel like all alone and wanting to go back to the Philippines.
Sometimes life is so confusing for when I am in my home country for just three weeks, my body yearns for the comfort American has to offer. If only both countries are so close to each other, it would be very easy for me to fly back and forth. Anyway, I am cheering myself for making it to 8 years without any problems or if there are, they are just minor problems ug madala ra smile!
A look back of the photos taken during my second day in America. Left photo below was taken in Tramway Palm Springs, California, March 14,2006. It was also my first experience/touch of snow. Right photo is of me and my husband just landed in Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport waiting for our luggage. I’d say, this was the beginning of our journey together as a married couple!
