With three sons who no longer live with me, there comes a sudden moment when I feel compelled to get in touch with each one of them. The timing is never the same and the reason for calling may not be the same but the urge to get in touch is unmistakeably the same. Is this the feeling all mothers have? Some more than others? At any rate, the urge I have is a good one – mixed with love, longing and curiosity as to what may be going on in their lives. And so far so good.
