a call home today. and the hardest words i ever had to say, “mom, i am not coming home. not anytime soon.” family, everyday, i miss them. but with each day away i become a better person, always learning more. which is why i made the decision to stay in Australia past my initial return date of next march – i feel that this is where i am suppose to be right now. finding my way albeit far away.
(i cannot express how much i have appreciated the support of my mother over the past several months. with every turbulent thought she has encouraged me to do what i need to do and is always quick to remind me not to worry – that family will be there when i am ready to come home.)
