Fast forward to today, and though he is away from home at a class and staying in a "dorm" room, how wonderful is it that I can speak to him every day, and see him almost every night when his classes are complete!!
I am just amazed as I sit here at my computer, my cell phone plugged in (because it was down to 1% YIKES!) and we exchanged messages and pictures over morning coffee. This is how we celebrated my daughter's 9th birthday a few weeks ago, over google chat with camera. Technology is positively amazing. Connecting families from one side of the country or world to another. I'd have to say that it was the technology like this that helped me during our tour in Japan.
And so, I sit here with my coffee, thankful to be living in the time of amazing technology that will never replace the human touch but will make up for the distance we face too often.
Enjoy your weekend my creative friends!
