More dull days this past weekend and today and no sunlight to take pictures. I hope we get a break in the weather soon but would rather not have the cold that is coming this week and the expected snowstorm on Wednesday.
I think I might be down in the dumps right now.
I'm really missing my girl.
I'm wishing I could be at our daughter's across the country and help her for a while. I wish I could drop by and spend the day with her and our grandsons and help her out while she gets some much needed rest. It's difficult for us both to be so far apart. We will be going to visit them next month but it's been 6 months since we were there. We talk nearly every day these days and Skype most days too. Sometimes when we Skype we just visit as though we were in the same room. The boys play or eat lunch while we chat. She might do laundry or change little E's diaper. We drink tea together sometimes. But, it's not the same as being there ~ holding her, playing with the boys and hugging them, laughing, helping prepare a meal or do laundry. I am truly thankful for today's technology where we can text, Facebook or Skype any time we want to. But, it's not the same as being there is it.
I don't know how people did the long distance thing in the past. I mean….Skype has only been around a few years but today we can talk in real time and see each other ~ sometimes at our worst. The "good old days" were simpler but imagine not being able to see or hear from a loved one for weeks or months while you awaited a letter in the mail or an expensive phone call from across the miles!
Do you Skype with a loved one across the miles?
Or do you call on the phone or write letters?
Maybe you do all three.
Me and my girl.
Thanks for visiting and all your sweet comments.
And thanks for listening.
