Urge to Call
Find myself longing to talk with my daughters more often. Phone conversations every few days. Meeting up weekly if possible. Craving that ongoing connection. Even more so than before. In part, to counter my sense of vulnerability. Of loss. While reflecting on my recent phone conversations with them, the urge to call my son came on with great intensity. The desire to speak with him as I could when he had a physical presence. To ask about his week. Touching base. Longing for the banter. Grateful for the new style of communication we do have, but often missing the old.
