Day 14 — Someone You’ve Drifted Away From
The first person that comes to mind is my Niece, Jennifer. I moved out of California 8 years ago. Since that time Jennifer and I don’t talk as often as I like and I feel like we have drifted away from each other. Don’t get me wrong, when we are together we pick back up, but it is those in between times that I feel like I have missed out on in her life.
My life is pretty simple. I am married, retired, raising 4 children. I don’t have too much going on that isn’t hard to keep up with. She on the other hand works very hard, is single, living a great life. I miss being part of her day-to-day life. We keep in touch on FB mostly. We text from time-to-time and have the occasional phone call, but that is about it.
I miss her. I miss knowing what is going on, who she is dating, who she is in-love with, how her job is doing, who she danced with last weekend, who she ran into at the beach, how her relationship with her Mother is, what color she is doing her hair this time, listening to her about her heart breaks and also the fabulous days… all of it. I miss it!
I just want to be there for her. Know that she is the happiest that she can possibly be. Know that she has someone to confide in. Know that she is okay. I love you Jennifer! 🙂
