She is sometimes impatient and short-tempered with me as if I am a silly child who really doesn't get the message. I am simplistic person who really enjoys staying home and relaxing. She is going through the 'superior being' phase with places to go and people to see. I last spoke to her early last week and she was in a bit of a hurry so we didn't prolong the conversation. She updates me on her doings with the shortest of explanations. If I make a comment on her Facebook wall she accuses me of stalking her. However I did feel the need to send her an sms on Sunday just to say that I missed her and loved her and hoped she was having a good day. No reply but I didn't really expect it.
I got an email this morning to say that she had written on my Facebook wall - "Hi Mommy I miss you! Wanted my mom last night coz I was feeling sick :-( Have a lovely day, Love you"
Sometimes a bit of distance and silence makes the heart grow fonder. I will phone her later and find out what is wrong and what is happening and I remain hopeful that in time to come we will live closer together and maybe regain some of the close relationship we had when she was growing up.
I love you, my darling daughter.
