I miss my mom.
We are so close, and I don't get to see her enough now that I'm 13 hours across the country away from her.
I know she's needed me this weekend. And I feel so helpless - a phone call away, but that seems so far.
It's funny the things you remember about your childhood, about your mother; and what sparks those memories to re-appear in your mind? The strangest things!
I got out of the shower tonight and remember how my mom used to make sure I got all the soap out of my hair when I was little. I got sunburned today and remembered how mom used to lather me up from head to toe with 3 inches thick of sunscreen!
