Grateful for Skype

Last weekend I was able to connect with my mom and chat to her for over an hour. We shared our experiences over the last week and I told her my news and that of my family. My girls also had the opportunity to speak to their granny and tell her directly a little bit of what is happening in their lives.

Each time I have a chance to chat with my mom I am grateful for Skype. Not only do I get to hear her voice but I also get to see her – and whatever project she is currently working on. Skype almost makes up for the fact that I am not able to visit her very often.

Thank you for last week’s contributions. I enjoy reading what others are grateful for – the posts make me think of other things I am happy to have in my life. Please remember to send me a pingback so that I know you have participated.

  1. Some people get all annoyed with technology and think it’s all bad. It’s not ALL bad. It’s who uses it and how. I think if it wasn’t for technology, I would have less friends and family in my life, due to distances. I’m happy for your ‘treat’. Good time of year for it. 😉


  2. Skype is one of the many great inventions that has come out of technology.
    We use it to contact family in Chile regularly, its more personal than a landline call.


  3. I remember growing up video calls were something we imagined! We would play that we could do something as awesome and futuristic as a video call.
    I must admit that I am quite grateful that it occurred in my lifetime 😉


  4. I’m grateful for Skype also, Colline. We get to see our little granddaughter every week, even though she lives 1000 miles away. I even use it to do face-to-face critiques with my critique group back in Colorado.


  5. Digital technology is amazing! Not only for keeping in touch, but also for finding people. I have rediscovered many family members using the internet. We now take it so for granted!
