I've talked to Ellie, on the phone, almost every day since she went back to her second year of college 6 weeks ago.
We've usually talked either early in morning or later in the evening which still tends to be the worst times for all of us emotionally.
I got up to see her this weekend and just returned home.
I spent the day yesterday at her first collegiate horseshow for the new school year.
I was off to the side alone for a fair amount of time doing what I've always loved to do-watching one of my kids.
It was so great to see her laughing, smiling and enjoying being with her friends/teammates.
I know she struggles daily with the loss of her Mom/best friend, but to witness a bit of normalcy for her was priceless.
