Its so hard to say Goodbye

Its so hard to say goodbye
when your loved ones
live so far away
and you don 't get to see them
very often.
Namrita , Mishael and Rayguel left this
afternoon. Right now they are
on the train.
We have spolen several times
on the mobile phone.

(Sonia, me,Rayguel & Mishael)

(Abner, Sonia , with Namrita, Rayguel and Mishael)

Having fun in a park on a cold and foggy day.

Mishael and Rayguel had oodles of fun
playing with Sheeba.She became a puppy
with them.
She is missing them so much,ate her dinner very late.

Mama was so happy and cheerful
all along when her youngest
was at home.
She ate well and did not complain
of any physical problem.

We bid each other a very
tearful farewell.
We all missed my elder sister
and her beloved family
and all our loved ones who
have passed on.
I am feeling so lonely without
my loved ones aound us.
Everything reminds me of them.

Man's feelings are always purest and most glowing in the hour of meeting and of farewell. Jean Paul Richter

Thank you BHAVESH
You are an acomplished
and exceptional photographer.

I know what you mean, Amrita. I have a couple of oceans between family members--Trinidad~England~Canada~USA~Thailand.
So glad you and your Mom had this time--she does look relaxed in the photos--great photos, wonderful memories. I do pray God pours His comfort over and in you and your Mom.
Love you like a sis,

praying for you, that the sweetness of this exceptional visit will last longer than the bitterness of the parting of your dear ones

Hoping that the memories of all the fun you had with them will sustain & cheer you in the loneliness.

Dear Amrita,
To part is to die a little, the French say.
I understand your sorry.
I hope your mother is thankful that she has you by her side always. She is privileged to have such a caring daughter.
Others may come and leave, but you are carrying the daily burdens, and that should be highly appreciated.
Now you've got to make some Amrita-time, to regain some strength in between.
Thinking of you!
From Felisol

Amrita said...

Thank you dear friends for your comforting words and prayers.
Namrita lives in such a remote reigon - travelling there is hard. But we praise God He gave us an opurtunity to enjoy each other 's company and love.

Hi Amrita,
You have a fine looking family. I especially like that happy picture of Sheba playing with the kids.

Saija said...

i know the feeling ... having loved ones that live across the ocean ... or even at the far ends of canada ... distance distance distance ... but in God, there is no separation or distance ... isn't that GREAT!

Olde Dame Penniwig said...

It is such a letdown when friends or family return to their homes. Poor Sheeba! She feels it as well. Three grieving hearts in your house...

I will be glad when you report that Namrita and her sons made it home safely.

It takes awhile, but I think a sense of equilibrium will return in a few days...I hope so...

Glennis said...

it is so lovely to spend time with our loved ones, and so equally sad when they leave, but if they were there all the time we would not have that heart soaring moment when we see them again.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Saying goodbye to your loved ones is indeed very painful. But each must go to his own way. What is left behind are fond memories of sweet experiences shared together. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.

Hi Amrita:)


This is really a moving post. It is true that we miss our dear ones when they depart after a short stay in our house. The children specially make the house come alive with their liveliness and playfulness. When they leave, the house suddenly becomes silent.This is quite difficult to bear at least for some time. But your sister is so wonderful to come to visit you and your ailing mother.

Lovely photos to cherish.

Have a wonderful day Amrita:)

Nina in Portugal said...

Bless your heart! I will be in prayer for you.

I know how you feel.....

I can totally relate.. living so far from home can create many heartbreaking moments but it makes the reunions so worthwhile don't you think?

The photographs are fabulous.

Simply Shelley said...

Grayquill said...

Family for sure is a blessing. Visits are often to short and the time away to long.:(
May God keep them safe until you are together again.

Becka said...

Dick said...

Dear Eternally Distracted , hope Max is doing well and not shooting off into his flying visitations LOL

Sita said...

Amrita, I LOVE that header pic! Hope you're doing OK...
Love, Sita

Amrita said...

Hi Sita, I thought that header picture is symbolic of our sister 's reunion.

I am doing OK, just under a weather a bit.

Terry said...

dear said you felt a little envious of the family gatherings that we goldens have and i see what you mean now.
it would be so hard for you to say so long to your folks who live so far away and the boys love sheeba so much, so it would be hard for them too.
there will be a day dear amrita, though that we will never have to say good bye again! terry
