Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray couldn’t help but feel sentimental leaving her family once gain.
On her social media account, the Filipina beauty queen shared “what saying goodbye looks like” posting an emotional photo of her.
“When I said goodbye to my parents at the airport, underneath my mask I kept smiling. Although it trembled. I didn’t want them to see. We hugged saying ‘see you soon.’ But this pandemic makes a once easy thing such an uncertainty…when?…how? When will we be together again?,” she shared.
“I felt the emotions spilling over but didn’t want them to see, so as I rounded the corner through the passenger terminal finally out of their sight, I let the tears come,” Catriona continued.
The singer admitted she contemplated hard about posting her story online.
But then she realized it is something “raw” and “real.”
“I’m so grateful for the time I had with my family. And now it’s back to counting down the days, the sunrises, the sleeps until we’re together again,” she related.
She then advised her followers to never take time with their family or loved ones for granted.
“So many of us wish to have that reality every day,” she pointed out.
Catriona reunited with her parents in Australia last month.
And during her vacation with them, they were able to bond over road trips and did glamping, hiking, and hours of singing along in the car.
