It’s Monday again. Today, I can feel the nearness of you. How could I not, since we were as intimate as two humans could be for 9 months? Me watching you grow from the outside; you listening to me live from the inside. The two of us joined in one simply amazing miracle of growth and life.
Mothers and daughters – connected in some inexplicable way to the immediacy of each other regardless of the distance. You are near me today the way a mom can be on a crowded playground and yet the sound of her toddler’s mere whimper is as piercing and separate from all the clamor as if they were the only two people on earth. I can hear you today and I know, too, you’re crying for me.
If only I could touch you one more time, my precious daughter. My kingdom for one more day of that.
I miss you. So much.
