Milan – Atlanta. A look into my private life.

When I created this blog WordPress told me I had to choose a topic. I looked long and hard at the list of topics and I immediately realized I could not possibly choose only one, because I have so much to write about, however I decided to play by the rules and so I chose a few. Well like 5. In these last few months. (9 to be exact) I have written about traveling, about mothering in a foreign country, about living in a foreign country. About life in general. Every post meant to be light, easy reading, I am not a reporter, not a journalist. I am a good writer at times, an extremely average writer other times, and sometimes, well sometimes my 6-year-old writes better than I do. But usually I always try find the humor in things. In every thing I do. Which is not always easy. Which is not always possible, especially in this particular moment. I decided to share this moment in my life, which is anything but light, however sometimes things happen in our life that are not light, that we weren’t expecting. That is life.

As I write this from the Atlanta airport, my kids and husband have just said goodnight to me on Skype in the South of France…I have a 5 hour lay over, followed by a 4 hour flight where my mom will be waiting for me. My my young, vibrant, loving mom that 5 weeks ago told me she had an aneurism in her brain, 2 actually, one that needed to be clipped as soon as possible.

I started to prepare my children for the fact that I would have to go and stay with grandma. It took an unbearable amount of time to find her neurosurgeon, to fix her date and finally to confirm it all. In the mean time I began to prepare myself for one of the most difficult journey’s of my life, the surgery, my staying so far and so long away from my children, the possibilities of someone close to me dying.

So here I am, waiting in the Atlanta Airport , waiting for my next flight, waiting and hoping that in 10 days from now I will be back to writing silly things that make you smile, maybe even laugh. For now, I’m here..

    I will be saying a prayer for you and your mother. You both will be in my thoughts.

  2. Dearest Angela, Finally after 2 extremely difficult weeks I can say that my mom is better. I haven’t even had time to write about it yet also because after taking her to her home I planned my trip for my home. where I have returned only 2 days ago. To Italy, to my family. Thank you for your prayers, thank you for writing to me… (imagine little yellow smiley face here with a couple of hearts) thank you, – Grace
