My daughter did another blog post yesterday. In fact, she did two.
She lives 3000 miles away. We email, we telephone, but it isn't enough. When she does a post (which isn't nearly often enough because of her busy life these days) it means so much to me. It gives me just a little insight into what she is thinking these days, perhaps how she is feeling. I probably read too much into it. My imagination carries me a little too far. But it's something.
I miss her.
I have another daughter who lives 200 miles away. Within easier traveling distance, yes. But due to circumstances, we do not see one another very often. I miss this daughter very much. She is the one most like me in many ways - although I must admit, at one time or another, I feel each of my three daughters are "most" like me. I even feel that about my son at times.
She does not blog any more. Has not for a number of years. I wish she would, but her writing style is very different from her sister's. She goes for humor in her writing and her speech. It is more likely to hide her feelings rather than betray them. I need to talk with her, to see her face to face.
I guess that today I am just missing having all of my children together.
