missing my other country


Thursday, February 07, 2013

I love the USA with all my heart and am proud to say my husband did 20 years in the Navy protecting her. But there are time when i miss my other country Japan. I lived there for 6 years and absoulty loved it. the food, the culture, and mostly how friendly the people are. beautiful green hills and Mt Fuji in the background. I miss being able take a train anywhere and not having to drive. I miss how they would pass out packs of tissues with company logos on it insted of flyers. i made some great friends over there and miss them dearly. but i know for now i will have to keep my memories alive and enjoy my island life.

    You have such wonderful memories, and you are sure to have some wonderful adventures to come... look to them with excitement and curiosity, because they will become the next chapter of memories for you. Be open to the happiness and joy your new country has to offer and I am sure you will be so thankful and delighted by such a rich life you are leading.

    Maybe you can have a trip there someday. I hope you see it again in all it's glory.

    Oh the joys mixed with a few woes of being a military wife (kid, spouse, etc.)... What beautiful memories you have of your time in Japan!

    Oh how I can empathize with yo!!! My husband was in the Air Force active duty for almost 14 years and then went into the Army Reserves to finish his 20 years because we had a Special Needs Child that we felt we needed to be near to home for both medical support and family support. During his 13 years active duty, we spent 3 wonderful years in Italy, which is the homeland of my husband's Parents who were both born there and grew up there. It is now 33 years since we were there, and we miss it more and more everyday, but know we may never make it back, and if we did it just would not be the same. We were newly weds and in our mid to late 20's then, and we had no children. It was a wonderful time of our lives and we will never forget it!
