Well, today is the day the streak ends.
For 569 days in a row I have communicated with my mom. Some days we exchanged "Good morning!" texts, and that was it. Some days, we hiked along a volcano ridge together. Most days, it was in between. Technology has helped us connect every day for five hundred, sixty-nine days in a row.
Today, Mom is out of reach.
And the streak is broken.
I sent her a text anyway. She'll be back in a few days, and we can try again.
In the meantime, Dad and I are up to 65 days in a row. We aren't as consistent.
