The Time Has Come
By six thirty in the evening today, I’d be at the airport possssibly crying my eyeballs out, giving my cousin one last hug before I see her again in seven months or so. I think I’ve mentioned earlier that she’s leaving for Dubai because her husband was offered a job there quite unexpectedly just a few weeks back.
For many years as a child and teenager, I used to live with her family. She and I shared a bedroom. Eventually I moved back home but we often met and I’d sleepover her place sometimes. And when I say”often met” I mean practically every other day. Oh and we even used to work together – she used to be my principal when I first started teaching.
In the last four weeks I’ve been spending 85% of my time with her and now it’s about to end with a long pause before we can get together again. I stumbled upon this on Facebook and thought I’d add it here even though it doesn’t appy much to this particular situation but it’s related.
