One of the things I miss most about my mom is her random texting.
Hi Suzy – are you home & can I come by for a quick stop?
Hey Suzy! Just checking on you! Hope the evening went well & that all the boys & pets are driving you crazy.
Do you have a DVD of Independence Day that I could borrow? I don’t seem to have mine anymore…
Kind, funny, weird – but always genuine. I really miss that. I miss being checked on. I miss being called. I miss that she doesn’t know all the inner workings of my life. I miss her followup questions. I miss her validation. I miss her voice.
And I miss texting her back.
I’ll be pulling weeds in the garden beds today. Wanna help?
Hope you’re having a great day and not losing any children!!
There are hot dogs here.
If you appreciate someone, tell them.
If you think of someone, send them a text and let them know.
They may be small, seemingly insignificant texts, but they mean all the world to me now.
