Now, I really never have come down with a case of homesickness. Soon after I graduated I went of vacation with friends for about a month and my lovely hosts had to remind me that I probably should call my parents somewhere around weeks 2 and 3. Now that I've been married for almost 5 years my husband still finds it necessary to ask (sometimes rightfully so) "when is the last time you talked to your parents?" He seems to talk to his parents every few days which is cool... but that's just not me. And it's not that I don't adore my parents. They're probably on the top 10 greatest parents of all time list somewhere I'm sure. But unless there's some kind of news or special something I think a couple weeks between calls is totally acceptable. And really by now my parents don't expect nor request more frequency than that. I've always been fine with distance between us... however now that I've moved this is the most distance there's ever been. I'm still not getting homesick. But I miss the short trips every few weeks to go see my mom. We've gone from a less than an hour car trip to an over and hour plane ride away. It's the first time in my life I can think of that I've really dwelled on the distance. Maybe it's because it's the first time that such a distance has been permanent. Mind you, It's not enough to make me regret moving... or to make me call her everyday. I still have to live my life the way that I think is best... but it's enough to make me miss her. And surely enough to make me SUPER excited that she is coming to visit TOMORROW!!!!
|Me and my Mom!|
My mom is the most awesome mother I know. Everything that comes to mind when you think of that word Mom...she's that! I strive to be her every day that I am figuring out this thing called motherhood. She's not perfect of course no one is but I wouldn't trade her for anyone else. See you tomorrow mom!
Have a fabulous day!
