When you’re away from home, what person, thing, or place do you miss the most?

I miss my family. I can’t live without them. I’m longing to see them to talk with them about what happen today, about what I did, what I learned, about what they did, how they feel. Sure we can talk through the phone or send each other e-mails or SMS but is not the same. I need their faces, their proximity, their company, their love. Family life. Home is where my family is. So if I’m at home and all of them are away I feel like a stranger in its own land and desolate. Maybe one day alone at home may be fine just for a change and to rest a little, but longer than that it’s a nightmare to me. Familiar things look different, empty, strange. Nothing makes sense. Only waiting for them to come back. I enjoy being busy preparing things for they arrival. I hope they feel the same way about me.
