Talking to You

This afternoon I was doing what I do all the time - waiting on one of the kids. I spend 99 % of my day enabling my kids to live their life. Not complaining...just saying.
This time I was waiting on Anna while she learned piano and it was one of those mild winter days. The car was cozy and warm and quiet and no one needed me.....heaven inside a van. Nothing I brought to read was even remotely interesting so I picked up my phone and sent a text to my oldest daughter.....in Chad, Africa. Just, "Hey Kirsten". A few seconds later she texted me back, "Hey Mom". We chatted a few minutes and then the piano lesson was over.
It struck me as I drove away that I just sat on a little street in a little town in West Virginia and typed some words into my phone and it traveled to an even smaller town on another continent.
Do we have the coolest technology or what!

I can't imagine living so far away without the blessing of modern technology. It was nice to not feel so far away and out of touch when we were in Romania. I know it meant a lot to Kirsten to hear from you.
