The other day I sent a Mom e-mail to my daughter. One of those whiny e-mails. Mean me. We hear from her quite a bit- but only via the computer. We hear her voice maybe four times a year. Maybe. I told her that she could read me a service manual and I would be delighted. Just want to hear you. This morning the phone rang. Rufus started up his hysterical bark fest. When I got him to quit I heard it. Daughter's voice. Now I can do more cleaning and tossing with a light heart. Sweet gift and it didn't cost her anything but time. She is busy with a good job but still......

There are moments in life that make you feel alive. There is nothing stronger than a mother's love for her children. It's hard to lose them to life. They are with you every day for 18 years and then leave, seeking their own way. The biggest reward has to be when a child returns the love. We go about our day thinking of them, recalling events, wondering what they're doing, if they're happy. Maybe even complaining that we don't see or hear from them often enough. Then a call out of the blue melts everything away except the love between a mother and her daughter. Thank you for sharing that story. I think I'll make some calls today. .
@sallypup I guess your e-mail did the trick about getting her to call you. I can tell by your doing cleaning that it must have been a good conversation with her. Maybe Rufus knew it was her on the other end of the line calling and was excited too that she called.
