After waiting for years (no exaggeration), my time finally came....I got an iPhone. Woo hoo! My upgrade from Verizon came through just in time for Mother's Day and I took FULL advantage. :) I could go on for hours about how incredible this little computer disguised as a phone is, but I'll spare you. I will tell you, however, one of my favorite things is it's ability to call with video. It's like Skype but cooler because you're not tethered to one spot with your computer. This weekend, we chatted with my step-dad, mom and in-laws with FaceTime. The kids were able to be interactive and it provided a whole new feeling of being connected.
Despite distance, it is still possible for our kids to be actively involved in the lives of our families. And for this, I am thankful.
