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.
