I’ve been really missing my mom, I talk to her on the phone a lot and occasionally we e-mail, and maybe video chat once in a blue moon. It’s not the same as seeing her in person. It’s hard for me that she’s on the other side of the country. I wish she was able to fly out and see me, but she doesn’t know when she can. I’ve felt like I’ve really needed her especially during the hard times I’m going through. She is the most important person in my life and it’s hard. I know making the decision to stay here was the right one for me, but I just wish she could visit. She said spring or fall, seems like a long time to wait.
