Mommy Moments- Home



I would like to share with you our second home~ we've been missing this home which is a 20 km away from Dai-Ichi Nuclear Plant in Fukushima and is inside the danger zone. My PIL has to leave this home because of the radiation level ( I can't hold my tears as I was writing this ) that could harm their health and sad to say that my husband's hometown now seems like a 'ghost town'. Everybody has evacuated the area including their livelihood...


I guess you're wondering why I preferred to write about my PIL's home~ my kids spend their first few years at their Grannies home and they grew up with them. They played with their cousins and tend to their favorite dog, Shiro. Wakaba blurted out one day that she wants some corn and I told her that I would buy her some at the market but she told me that 'she wants the corn from their Grannies farm' and it's kind-a hurting me knowing that it would take awhile for us to come back. And I'm sure that the one's hurting the most is my PIL, BIL, SIL and hubby~ he grew up there and has so many memories. It was hard for them to leave their home and their livelihood but there was nothing else that they could do but HOPE and PRAY. I'm praying for the day that we could all be together again at our home in Namie.
Peace - that was the other name for home.

Every house where love abides
And friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home sweet home
For there the heart can rest.

Home, the spot of earth supremely blest,
A dearer, sweeter spot than all the rest.

A house that does not have one worn, comfy chair in it is soulless.

Pati ako nalungkot reading your post mami clang, sana maayos na or mawala na yung radiation para makabalik na sa dati ang mga evacuees.

Enjoy your weekend Clang. Ms. Burrito wants me to tell you "Thank you very much" for the surprise postcard she received! Thanks for making m6y baby's day clang.

Sana naman maresolbahan na yang radiation na yan, I know that your IL's are so itching to go "home" not bec of the materials that they lost bec it can be replace anytime, but the memories that lives there. Happy Weekend sis!

where there is love, there is home...i guess, it's really hard to be away from home, but, for our safety...it necessitates the sentimentalism.
