What a Wonderful Call!

Last Tuesday was my first day of work for this year. One of my lessons was for a woman who is in her 60's.
Upon entering the room, she gave me a big hug and said, "Happy New Year!" She seemed to be in the seventh heaven.
In fact, she told me that she rang in the happiest new year she's ever had.

Let me talk about the details.
She has a son and a daughter. During my lessons for her, she was willing to tell me about her son. However, as for her daughter, she seemed to hesitate.
The other day, she told me about the relationship between her and her daughter. I was sad to hear that their relationship wasn't good. Her daughter lives in London with her family and they hadn't contacted each other for about seven years. I thought there was a big problem there. I couldn't ask her about it because I didn't want to poke my nose into her private matter.

On New Year's day, a phone call rang and she answered it. It was from her daughter! She told me that she had never thought to happen something like that, but actually it did. She was so moved that she chatted with her daughter in a tearful voice. Her husband was also crying and managed to talk with his daughter.

Yes, they finally contacted each other for the first time in seven years! What a touching story!
I hope their mixed feelings will gradually thaw.
