One of the difficult parts of being in an LDR is not being there when she needs a good hug.
One of our rituals is that she calls every morning before she goes to work. When it was past her usual time, I realized my phone was off the hook and figured she had called and got a busy signal. I figured she was already driving to work. So I called her cell and left a message and texted her that I was sorry I missed her.
She called a half hour later to say she wasn't feeling well -- fever and scratchy throat -- and was staying home from work. I put her back to bed but it's frustrating not being there for her. I can only hope she recovers quickly.
She's due to visit Thanksgiving and I will be counting the days.
