Thank you for caring

Just a little phrase, but with power to make tears jump into my eyes.

Thank you for caring.” my Mom said as we hung up the phone on a 1 minute Skype call.

My parents are moving today- and I wanted to know how its going and where they will sleep tonight.

Mom didn’t have time to talk long with the moving truck coming- but said those 4 little words, “Thank  you for caring.”

As I hung up the phone tears started rolling down my cheeks. “Oh how I wish I could do more than CARE.” But living an ocean away makes that impossible. . . if I were a millionaire I’d own the fastest jet around and be there for all those moments and birthdays and special occasions that happen without my presence.

Yet here I am- in this blessed life an ocean away- but with the power to show I DO care with a simple phone call.
