Alphabe Thursday … B is for Brazil

May 28, 2015


B is for Brazil the home of my youngest child.  She has lived there with her partner for several years. Her roots are here in UK, one day she may return but until then we live our lives as normal but as a distance. That distance cannot change it remains far and expensive if a crisis occurs; but like the proverbial bridge we have and will cross that when it happens.  

The break has been difficult and painful but progress has been made and hand on heart I wouldn’t change it for the world; 99% of me is happy and enjoy our relationship over the ocean, our extended Brazilian family and the opportunity to ‘live’ in Rio during our summer holidays.

Of course that other 1% becomes unfairly weighted and overwhelming not just for me but her siblings in UK who miss her too! So today I celebrate Brazil, Brasil and her nuts!

    It’s not easy to let them go, but that’s something we must do. I’m sure you can be content knowing she is happy a half a world away.

    Just imagine how awful it would be 50 years ago with no internet, Skype, emails. I can’t imagine!!

      You are right; sometimes I get over whelmed with a little too much information … but the pain is diminishing xxx

    Oh, I know what you mean…so close but yet so far away. Part of being a successful parent is letting them go to live their own lives and dreams…well done !!! 😉

    I know we raise them to let them go but it is so ridiculously difficult.

    Sending you a big hug.

    I enjoyed the beautiful pictures but I’m still sending you a giant hug, Mom to Mom, anyway!
