I have to say my new favorite thing is Skype! To be able to now SEE while I talk to my wonderful nieces/nephew and great nieces/nephews...as well as my other family members and friends scattered around the US....And all this for FREE anytime I want...Love it:)
We spend hours all snuggled up in jammies chatting since no one cares what they look like..haha...
as close to the real thing...
To me..the phone and sometimes internet can get 'lost in translation' since you can't see someone's expression which makes a huge difference..
I do like texting to all my youth group kids from my church (most are college now and beyond) as that is their preferred form of communication..that and Facebook and Tweeting:) So..it's fun each day and easy to send a 2 second text to say I am thinking about
them...or hear about
what is going on with them...
But of course I love this board..where there is already a realm of understanding and caring to begin with...so that brings compassion to the mix which makes this venue a bit easier than just regular email and such..as well as feeling cared for when I am here..
I do talk with my mom each day..(she doesn't have a computer)...and boy..we can get talking for hours about
everything from news, politics, tv shows, movies...you name it...we have worked extremely hard over the years to have our relationship be a loving and caring and enjoyable one...There were times in my teens and 20's when we didn't talk and things were horrible growing up...But time/patience/forgiveness and for us, God, helped mend this..
Sorry..went off on that good tangent..haha...
So..I actually have "Skype time" with one of my Nieces out West and her kiddies tonight:):)
Great post Chutz:)
