This morning I got a Skype call from my son Tysen who is in the Airforce. We were on Facebook, at first, being that I don't own a cell phone as of yet so that's the way I communicate.
He asked me which made me happy, we had a very nice chat. I got to see his room which is small sharing with a roommate who Tysen told me is glad he keeps his side clean.
He will be deployed for six months and thank the heavens for technology. I also got his address and I will send a letter with something little in the envelope. Anyways that's the plan.
I live and breath for my children and am so grateful they are so good at staying in touch even if they live so far away.
Are you a long-distance parent or grandparent yourself? I love stories so do tell.
