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!
