Thankfully Thankful

Today I am thankful for telephones.
Because of phones/cell phones I am able to talk to my parents every day.
Though they are thousands of miles away I am able to curtail my homesick heart by talking to them.
I can chat with my grandparents and my friends.
I can make plans for the evening or take pictures of my sweet little boy and send them to family.

Although they can be annoying sometimes- people are using them to detach themselves from reality and not have to physically communicate with people- I am thankful for the connections people are able to help me maintain.

Very true, very true! I never realized how blessed I was to be able to make a phone call. Not being able to pick up the phone and call my friends and family for the past 6 months has been really hard. Yes, I have the internet but waiting around for someone to get on the internet for a chat just does not cut it. I would have given anything to have been able to call up my family and friends to tell them we were having a baby. Email, is just not the same. Only 6 more months and then I will be back in paradise!!!
