I know it isn't possible but I still wish I could dial my Mother's phone number and she could answer. I try to be forward looking and generally am, but every once in awhile I get melancholy for no particular reason and it stays with me. It happened last night and I was and am still pretty sad about it.
Today I will be out very early to see a Dr. before a sort of routine procedure happening later this month. It would have been reassuring to talk to my Mom last night but she has been gone a very long time and it couldn't be. I know that, but I wish it would have been possible.
