I hate to say goodbye!

All your bags are packed, you are ready to go. I am standing here outside your door.
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye. Sounds familiar?

This song ( Leaving on a jetplane) is what comes into my mind when I think of you.
You are leaving me soon to travel to a land where they eat nachos, enchiladas , burritos, tamales and mole. Where the main language is Spanish. It will be a big change of atmosphere for you from a small country with ca 5 million people to a bigger country with 113 million people. And to a place where the sun almost shines all year round. 

Why is it so hard for me to say goodbye?

For almost 19 years, you had been the apple of my eyes. You had been my comfort when I miss our loved ones too much who is far away from us. You brought joy , comfort and also heartache to me. You teached me to be patient, tolerant and accept what I cannot change.

You know that my life will not be the same again when you leave. Going to eat my meals alone, see tv alone and be alone in the house, talk to myself, unless your father is at home. Happy though that I have  a cat to talk to when I am totally alone. 

Yes, I am used missimg our  loved ones very much, but at least I have you at home. Now, you are going to be away too. Going to a country where I can't be a part of your everyday life. What would it be for you? Maybe better or maybe not. 

What would it be for me? The answer is, it is better when you are home with me. But I have to let you go. Home for you will be where your heart is.

Anyway, that is life. Just want to wish you a life where you can reach what you dreamed of.  I wish too that your stay there will make you more matured and learned the realities of life and  that life is not sunshine all year round. And that it takes hard work to succeed in life. 

But remember, no matter what happens in your life, there is always a lesson to be learned.

Well, I supposed there will be more time for  blogging, facebooking, reading, writing, crotheting, knitting, cardmaking, picture taking and working for your mother. More time to have quiet time with God. One thing is for sure. I am going to pray more  for your safety and for you to find the truth.

 I just wish that you take God with you in your heart and in your life. If you do, I won't worry wherever you are going to.

                                  Von voyage to Mexico!

                                Loving you with all my heart,


  1. Such a sweet, heart-felt message to your beautiful daughter. Wishing her traveling mercies and blessings on a new journey. When my 2 daughters went off to college a long time go, I learned to 'let go.' I love our reunions. Thanks for sharing this great post.

    1. Thanks lady d for visiting and for the nice comment.

  2. Yes, I like what you convey in this letter, is gorgeous, very pretty.

  3. ilang mos. lang naman e. uwi din siya.

  4. Praying that the Lord holds your heart as you will miss your daughter even though you are excited for her adventure.

  5. una sa lahat ay maganda siya.....tawagan mo na lang siya palagi para hindi mo siya ma miss masyado....good luck sa pagpunta niya ng Mexico....

  6. Thanks arvin, mana sa ama:) thanks got internet, we can communicate often:)

  7. aaaw joy! I know exactly how you feel...
    in as much as we wanted for them to stay forever in our care, but the time to let them go and learn by themselves about the outside world will come.

    GOOD LUCK to your lovely daughter!

    1. Thanks balut. I can only put my trust in God and hope for the best:)

  8. haaay kakalungkot naman..lungkot din ako pag matagal kami hindi nagkikita ng mom ko.. anyway goodluck kay pretty daughter sana ay maging successful sya sa kung anumang dahilan ng pagalis nya :)

    1. Thanks Pink Line. By the way, nasa abroad ba mommy mo?

  9. awwww what a very touching letter from a very loving Mom... Ill pray for your daughter's protection.. may the Lord's travelling mercy be upon her :)

    1. Thank you so much Genskie for the nice comment and for the prayer. really means a lot to me:)

  10. What a tender sentence for a mother this is! Mothers always care about daughters, me too. But there is a proverb in Japan that spare the rod and spoil the child. I pray for your daughter's safety.

  11. Thank you so much sarah. I believe we have a saying in the bible too about " spare the rod and spoil the child". But here you know, it is not allowed to spank a child. So my daughter is spoiled, but we tried much to teach her the right way. and I hope that she will remember everything she learned from us. Thanks for visiting:)

  12. Joy, I am having difficulty posting comments on some blogs. See my recent post. Hopefully this will go through on your blog. Blessings.

    1. I saw your comment in the spam comments. Dont know why, but i just moved your commment here. Hope you solve this problem

  13. super touched ako, i'm a mama's girl kasi.. hope your daughter will have a safe journey.. and there are thousands of ways naman to communicate so you won't miss each other too much..

  14. aawww! so touching Joy, i'm sure she'll miss you too. cheer up!

  15. Your post is so touching. So hard to see our love ones go but they also have to spread their wings and find their life as we did before. We have to pray for her safety all the time. Joy, mag study ba siya sa Mexico?

    Happy Sunday and thanks for the visit!

    1. Yes mary, but coming home again in december. Thanks the visit :)

  16. This is a very touching letter Ms Joy..I'm sure your daughter will be fine, as God will always be with her..I'm sure looking forward ka for December, when she'll be back, she will have so much to share to you about Mexico :)

    1. Oo nga zaizai. She left today and that is life. Thanks for your heartfelt comment:)

  17. A heartfelt message to a lovely daughter from a loving mom, so touching. Good luck to your daughter ms Joy... :)

  18. I'm sure she's going to miss you too. And going away with her mom's blessings is the her best gear to succeed wherever she'd go. Have faith in her and in your God. I can just imagine how hard it is for moms to say goodbye to their children even if it's just for a few days.

    Bless you, Joy!

    you're using?

    I'm going to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time

    selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is

    because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm
    looking for something completely

    unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic
    but I had to ask!

    my blog post;

  37. My dear friend Joy, this is such a beautiful post and I totally understand you, because I know the that feeling when you see your kids flying out of the nest. My 2 daughters also left and they are very far from me. I miss them so much, but they are adults now and they have to live their own life, we always talk on Skype, Facebook, Phone...what ever it needs.
    So your little one went to Mexico, I'm from Mexico too, what city is she living? I noticed this post is very old, is she home or still living in Mexico? I wish her well and for sure this will be a beautiful experience for her.
    Send you a big hug,
    Laura :-)

  38. just blogwalking.. Nice post and have a nice day :)

  39. I just read your post today, years after you wrote it. It is hard to say to goodbye and I hope her stay in Mexico was good.
