I just read some about ‘…going home, being with parents…’. It reminds me last year how I experienced of going home and staying over a month!
I am very lucky that my husband totally supports me in any aspects. Last year planning to visit my family in China, I brought soooo many great gifts and even stayed over a month without a second thought. Within the stay in China, most of time I lived with my parents in Shanghai, one week with my older sister’s family in Beijing. My husband and I talked over the phone or on internet every other day, we were trying to update our activities frequently, including the pictures. He always told me what had been done, fixed, maintained etc. at home on the weekends; I always told him where I went, visited, had a dinner, etc. on the daily-basis. Obviously, for me the money spent very quickly. My husband respects and understands me totally, in fact it was him who generously insisted on giving some money to my parents. In the end when the last day came, I told him that I wished to have another more week to enjoy only with my parents at home without any disturb. He said to me that ‘ Do what the heart tells you!’ Then he helped me with the extension of airline ticket. No doubt, I felt sooo contented and satisfied with the visit in my hometown.
Thinking back, what if there was any little point on which my husband and I disagreed with each other, it would definitely leave some regret behind in my life.
I realllly appreciate all my husband did for me! I mean not only above that just I wrote, but there are also many other things in my life!
All I can say that I am lucky and happy!!!
