Even Sprint doesn’t work in Heaven.

The other day on the drive home, I was thinking about my Mom & wanted to give her a call. That’s what I would’ve done any other time. A quick chat, a check-in, a “how and where are you” kind of call. And then I remembered that I couldn’t call her. My next thought was, “Maybe I could send her a text message?”

Then I realized I couldn’t do that either.

It was weird how my mind knew that I couldn’t call her – obviously – but a text message seemed perfectly reasonable. You can see that there are some synapses with extra time on their hands. Or maybe my brain was giving me a break from the constant heartache and made me forget, just for a moment, that I’ll never be able to talk to her again.

Either way, it makes me so sad.

    Hadn’t visited your blogsite for some time and wasn’t aware your mother had passed. I am so sorry and, of course, you are sad. Just thank God you have wonderful memories of her and family and friends to help you get through this. Hugs and prayers to you.

    I think you can text to Heaven. Try it anyway. I bet God has really good cell phone coverage.

    Awww Jen…..I understand this feeling. My dad’s been gone for six years now and I still have moments sometimes when I hear a joke he would love or think of something to tell him and then realize I can’t…

    Huge hugs to you my friend…..huge ones….
