My Wartime Diary. Birthday and long-distance relations. Day 84
It's been 84 days since I am alone with this nightmare. Almodt always by myself. No family, no friends, no pets. What is the meaning of the life of a person who lives alone? Sometimes it seems that if there is no one to take care of, then there is no point in taking care of yourself.
How do single people manage not to go crazy? Sometimes I feel like I can't take it anymore. The last week has been unbearable. I've been crying 2 days. And then Nick came home. And my despair is gone.
He has been at home for two days and 2 nights, and I'm so happy not to be alone because... because it's my birthday today. ❤
We visited the hairdresser (for the first time this year 😃), walked around the neighborhood, went to a cafe. In addition, I did some work, attended a company meeting.
I get calls with greetings all day since early morning, and I feel like didn't talk so much for ages. It's so warming to know that my friends don't forget me in these terrible circumstances, to share news and our stories, fears and hopes, and best wishes. We have the only huge shared wish - a victory for our country. Victory over invaders, over darkness, death and destruction, injustice and deprivation. It will be the greatest day in our live, and we'll be the happiest people in the whole world.
I dream of the day when I will see my daughter and mom. I miss my friends, work mates, Nick's friends, and his mom. She is a wonderful and strong woman, and lives much closer, in 45 km from my place. Hope I can see her and hug when our oil shortage will be over.
Look what my sweetheart has sent me! The box came today in the morning.🎁 She knew her mom will be looking for a birthday cake and sent me a Tiramisu 🥰 And a bottle of a Cianti (yummy 🍷) and one avocado, and some food supply. I raised a good girl. She is my heart, my love and my life. 💕💖
Although, today Ukraine is celebrating Vyshyvanka day. It's a very special day for Ukrainians, as vyshyvanka is a part of our national code and heritage. On this day we used to put on our best embroidery, take selfies and group pictures, go to parades and boast about. This day is always very joiful and sublime....
Nat is wearing vyshyvanka that I bought her a while back. Good lass.
Tomorrow is another day. Nick made a decision, he'll join AFU. I wish he'd stay at home, return to work, but ... it's his decision, and I respect it. So, today we enjoy each other and our blue sky that our defenders hold for us every day and every hour. Enjoy every bit of our life - street art, blooming trees, singing of birds, sunbeams, the chance to hold hands and hear a breath of the loved once in the night.
Life is a miracle. And we highly appreciate it.
