Take Me There…Tomorrow

This is the 27th consecutive day where Victoria has recorded no new locally acquired cases of coronavirus.

That is good news but we can never tell with this virus what tomorrow will bring. I and my co blogger Alison of Travels with Ali were planning to meet up in Melbourne when she comes over supposedly in the next few weeks. But that isn’t happening now because of a sudden lockdown in Western Australia.

When I think of tomorrow, I think of uncertainty and I feel sad. No, this is not just about travel… I know most of us are thinking of that too, but this is a wish, a prayer and this is I, hoping that sometime soon in the near TOMORROW I can go and see my son in London.

Tuesday Photo Challenge- Tomorrow

It has been almost three years when I last gave my son a big hug. When I left Heathrow in November of 2018, I wasn’t worried because I was thinking that he can come over to Melbourne the following year or we can go on a family holiday in the Philippines, as we were planning, in 2021. But none of that pushed through as pandemic swept the whole world. And now, who knows where tomorrow will take us …

Miss you my boy!

    Love that picture of you and your son. In all the uproar of Covid death and destruction, we forget about the smaller side effects. Families are kept apart, whether by miles and travel restrictions, or a glass barrier at a nursing home. My kids live closer to me than yours, but we still have to be careful. I fear we’ll get into the habit of not seeing each other after all of this, and lose our former closeness.

      That photo is the very last time that I was able to hug him before I boarded my flight so that photo is very memorable to me. Covid really destroyed a lot of things to families and loved ones near or far. Thanks for the comment Geanie and stay safe always wherever you are.

  2. Alison says:

    Sorry to hear that Teresa ..I didn’t realise you had a son in London
    Hopefully I can still come over sometime in February

    1. Teresa says:

      I know you can still do that Ali. Australia is good in containing cases. And yes, my daughter is only an hour away from me but my son is a million miles away.

      1. Alison says:

        I hope you get to Skype often then

        1. Teresa says:

          Yes we do but…

          1. Alison says:

            Not the same

  3. So much sadness. I value every day I have with my family who are near. Hopes and prayers that you can see your son soon. 🤗🙏🏻 (emoji hugs are just not the same 😥)

    1. Teresa says:

      Emoji hugs and online chats are most welcome but obviously not the same.

  4. Irene says:

    Much too long to go without a hug. Hope you get to see your son soon.

    1. Teresa says:

      I know it’s much too long but there’s no other way around this! Do for now video chat is the way to go.

      1. Irene says:

        Grateful for video chats. 😊

        1. Teresa says:

          I know, what could we have done without it?

          1. Irene says:

            I’d rather not find out what that would be like. 😏

  5. eklastic says:

    We are all hoping for better times … keep the virtual hugs with your son going!

    1. Teresa says:

      I will…thanks so much for your nice comment!

  6. restlessjo says:

    Oh, bless you, Teresa- I know exactly how that feels! It’s much less time for me but still it feels like forever. We have April flights booked to the UK but no certainty that they will happen. Sharing hugs! 🙂 🙂

    1. Teresa says:

      Hugs to you too. I know a lot of people have the same feeling …so hugs to all of us and to all your kids and to all your loved ones too!

      1. restlessjo says:

        🙂 🙂

  7. Sherry Felix says:

    I know how you feel. We were supposed to see our grandson for the first time in 6 years. Trip trip to Italy and London called off and no refund by the Lufthansa. It is frustrating.

    1. Teresa says:

      Oh my…so sorry to hear that. It’s bad enough not to see your grandson but why isn’t there any refund? That’s kinda rude, don’t you think?

      1. Sherry Felix says:

        Sure is. We complained to better business bureau.

        1. Teresa says:

          Hopefully you can sort this out.

  8. Toonsarah says:

    I feel for you. I do hope the vaccinations will start to make an impact and allow you to travel to see your son soon

    1. Teresa says:

      I have a feeling that until the whole world is vaccinated then it would still be an unsafe situation… so that means a long time still. But I am still hoping . Thanks for your nice words, Sarah ❤️

  9. maristravels says:

    Your words echo those of everyone who is separated from family. None of mine live in this country and I live alone. I manage, but it’s tough not to be able to see family members who normally I would see a few times a year. Still, we must be grateful for what we have, a roof over our head, food and heat, and I still have hope that soon this nightmare will be over for all of us.

    1. Teresa says:

      Stay safe and yes, still so much to be grateful for.

  10. My heart breaks for you, Teresa – it is way too long not to be able to see your child (he looks all grownup but they will always be our babies!). It is tough when families are unable to meet. And things are so uncertain that plans can’t even really be made.

    Hang in there! Big hug!

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks for the hug… I needed that! I just got off from a video chat with my son and it helped. Have a good day my friend!

      1. Thank goodness for tech!
        Enjoy the weekend coming up!

        1. Teresa says:

          You too!

  11. lolaWi says:

    praying that your wish will come true, T! hugs 🙂

    1. Teresa says:

      Hugs too. I hope that my prayers be answered.

  12. Fingers crossed that this can happen soon. That’s a lovely photo of you and your son.

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks, I hope so too. Happy that you liked it.
