I have missed my parents a lot more than I thought possible since they moved to the east coast. Luckily there is always Sunday. It's the day I usually talk to my parents and occasionally we video chat so they can see their grandson. Today as I talked to my dad, I heard my mom laugh in the background. I was instantly, unexpectedly filled with warmth inside. I could feel her soft hugs and smell her unique scent. Her laugh is the sound I crave the most. To make my mom laugh would mean I had something really special to do or say. It is the sound of approval. The most beautiful sound in the world.
