Excited to hear from my daughter

My daughter left for Europe on the 12th. I had heard from her more often when she first got there and through her time in Munich. I know that she was having some trouble with her phone, but she would check in every so often. I was able to text with her for her birthday on the 17th. I hadn't heard from her in the last several days until today, when she was able to find a computer (perhaps at an internet cafe?) for a quick check-in to let me know she's doing well. They are leaving Berlin today for Copenhagen. She still has a few days left in Europe before her return home. I'm glad that she took the opportunity to go on this trip with her boyfriend, and I hope that she has enjoyed it. I do look forward to hearing all about it when she returns and is settled in.

I am glad you received news from your daughter. I know it was not always easy to call my Mom in Italy when I traveled in the United States.

Just knowing that she's doing well and that she's thinking of me and enjoying herself is all that I need

@CoralLevang I knew that and it's for that reason I never missed to call my Mom every three to five days to let her know everything was okay... even when it was not I never told her.

I hope so. Sometimes it's like having my old daughter back, the one that she was before she married the fool.

@ElusiveButterfly yes, that is true. And we're rebuilding our relationship as adults women. There is a lot of pain to have to still sift through.

I am so happy that she contacted you and let you know she is fine and having fun. I think it is important to do this so you don't worry about her. This also shows you how much she loves you and misses you too.

The last sentence you wrote brought tears to my eyes. It's been a long time coming.

@CoralLevang My daughter and I have always been so close. If she doesn't call for a few days all of a sudden she is calling me to find out how I am. We laugh and talk about nothing on the phone and we always hang up laughing so hard. She is always telling me how much she misses me and loves me. So this is why I know when your daughter calls you it is for the same reason. She is worried about you and she misses you and loves you.

@celticeagle I think that her bf and friends were going and he invited her. I'm not sure how they negotiated what to see and do. I think her trip may have been different had she and I decided to make that trip together.

My daughter lives away from home now with her boyfriend and I really miss her but as long as she texts me and I know she's happy and well I don't worry. It's important that she keeps in touch though as I'm sure it must be for you with your daughter. I bet you can't wait to see her again and hear about her adventures .

As she is 42 years of age, and we had very little contact over the 20 years that she was married to her husband, it's nice to hear from her now even once a week

I'm hoping to talk with her soon when they return. I know they get in late on the day they arrive, and she will be back to work at 8 a.m. the following day. LOL

Let's hope! She has already shared a couple of pictures early on, but will have to wait until her bf uploads pictures to get access.
