it hurts. I miss my little girl. I haven't talked to her since Monday when she was getting ready to board the bus to take her to reception at Ft. Jackson. I had to go to the capitol city yesterday for a state department meeting and had to pass right by Jackson going and coming. I was like two minutes from her and yet it is like she is a thousand miles away. I'm used to multiple contacts a day. I've never gone without a few days of seeing her. I miss her texts all day long. I know I'll be okay. I've been keeping myself busy. I bought a Wii and Wii fit to occupy some time. I've painted her old room---she moved out over a year ago and I had not redone it yet. It's no longer raspberry pink and black!!! I start back to school next week, so that will help some. But, God I miss her!
