A cry in the middle of shopping

I went into Marks and Spencer for a few items for dinner. I recollected my Mum phoning me every 2 minutes as she remembered what she wanted me to get and I would suggest that she take a few minutes and write a list for me and call me when she had her completed list. She still called me every 2 minutes :) I then remembered the feel of her when I would hug her. I don't know why I remembered that but the tears started to well up.
