Quick Update

I spoke to my son today!!!  Aside from being cold and a little sick he's doing fine.  Hearing his voice on the other side of the phone did amazing things for my heart.....

My daughter in law sent a text this morning saying he's going to call so I waited and waited and by 11 am I knew I wouldn't get a call (12 hour time difference) so I really fell into this horrible ugly place so I took Emma to my daughters house for the day and went and curled up in my moms bed and cried myself silly.  In the midst of an awake moment at 8 this evening he called and I can't tell you how amazing it was to hear him say "hi mom" god I love that kid.  We got to talk for about 10 minutes before he had to get to work but it was the best 10 minutes I've had since he left.

Sorry that you went to the "ugly place". I totally get that although I can't relate to your individual situation.
I'm glad that you were able to talk. I miss my kids even if they are just gone for one night and safe with my parents.
Your Friend, m.

It's crazy...sometimes I feel like my mother is trying to get me OFF the phone, and I'm like, doesn't she miss me?

This entry made me feel hopeful that she does, and sad for you, and sad for us all who are so spread out from those we love.
