#PilotWifeProblems: Alone for the Holidays
I still can remember waking up on Christmas morning to find presents under the tree with my name on them, that was the best feeling I will cherish forever as a kid.
However, as years passed, Christmas started to become mundane. Today is my 5th Christmas away from home. I spent Noche Buena with some close friends because my husband had the evening flight and won’t be back till morning. I was not disappointed that he didn’t spent Christmas eve with me because I also did the same thing when I had to work night shifts on the holidays.
I woke up early today to have breakfast with my unfortunate friends who came from the night shift. It was a simple one. We didn’t have any extravagant decorations or food. I think we were trying to be practical with spending money. Just kidding. We actually sent more than 50% of our wages home, so our families can enjoy their holiday celebrations. Being an OFW, we have a saying that: Our families happiness is our happiness.
Merry Christmas and wishing everyone is enjoying the season!
