Day #389

January 24, 2015

Twice this week I had the joy of FaceTiming with our godson. Such a sweet young man, with lots of enthusiasm and wonder.

It’s awesome that we have such an invention - seeing one another while talking, yet being hundreds of miles away. It’s like we’re just sitting together. And it makes me thankful for technology.

It’s ironic how I was just thinking earlier today of his mother and me and how we began Instant Messaging while in school. Quicker than the phone, but a great way to communicate, we would send each other notes while studying in our separate apartments. It helped us know one another, brought us closer, and contributed to forming a friendship still very strong today, years later.

Hopefully, these moments of FaceTiming will have a similar affect with her son, our godson, and us. It sure makes me smile to see his face instead of just hearing his voice. What joy!

  1. Technology is an amazing thing. I certainly don't feel all that old but when I think back to all the technological changes I've seen, particularly in the field of communications, I am amazed. I'm grateful too; so happy for connections that can be utilized so quickly and effectively to keep us all together, like this blog!
