It’s almost April classes are soon to end. My kids have been counting the days for their father’s coming home. It’s Songkran in Thailand and with these holidays my husband could have a break from work and spend time with us. Either we go to Thailand to visit him or him going home to the Philippines! Kids have been counting the days! Excited for their microscopes and even praying every night for their tatay’s coming home.
Tickets were booked for April and suddenly “Corona Invasion” (my kids usually call it).
My husband and I decided to rebook his ticket instead of risking one’s health to Corona’s threat while traveling.
Before we slept our eldest Siam leads the prayer.
Lord please make corona a small spread Lord. Protect my tatay when he travels Lord- going home Lord and so on..
After the prayer, I told him what if tatay cannot go home in April?
Our youngest son said – I will be sad.
Siam: hmmm my microscope… and crying! Tatay! Tatay!
Me: Explaining about the corona
Siam: I hate Corona! I hate Corona! Tatay, tatay! I want tatay to go home…
And I noticed his tears were not just because of a microscope but he already missed his father and was disappointed because he’s not gonna go home soon.
I then told him that in July he is going home. Siam did not stop crying! It is so dugay, he said. December is longer! my response. I let him cry while my tears just fell on its own until we all fell asleep.
Praying that soon this will end! Corona will vanish and we could all live our normal lives.
Do I worry about my husband? Yes, of course, because he is out there living away from us and away from our country, we do not know until when would Corona fade! With hopes and prayers – the best thing we could do is to be healthy and stay where we are!
I saw how my husband embraces a healthy lifestyle not just for himself but because of us! May God embraces his love and strength to all who are working away from their families and could not go home because of Corona!
