This morning I was sitting at my computer, trying to write and at the same time watching and listening to my daughter, who was facetiming with a friend in the US. And I can’t stop thinking how beautiful it is that there are no problems anymore with staying in touch.
First, they played a card game. How? I don’t know, but they did. Then, they played music together. One on the guitar and the other one played the flute. And then they talked about school and all the other things they’re doing at the moment.
While they were chatting my little girl’s friend told her that some of the girls at school were a bit mean to her. How nice that they can share their worlds in such a way. And how wonderful to know, that no matter what goes on in your daily life, on the other side of the world is that one friend, who’s there for you. Who has nothing to do with all your regular things and just cares.
Thanks to our technology that friend is reachable almost all the time. No more waiting for weeks to get a letter. Or crazy expenses for two minutes on the phone. Right now I love the modern technology and I’m so grateful we can stay in touch so easily with the people we care about so much.
