Sid FaceTimed us this evening. Often when she FaceTimes us we talk for a long time. There always comes a point in our conversation where I stop staring at her like a goofball and start to move around the house doing things while the others talk to her. I comment here and there but really I just enjoy hearing her be a part of our world. Tonight as I was getting Reese ready for bed, I heard the house erupt in laughter. It was Sid, G3 and Libs talking about something and it immediately brought a smilie to my face. No it’s not like truly having her here with us, but it sure does make me pretty darn happy.
Well, I hope you all have a day where it was close enough!!!
I got some FaceTime with Sid today. Don’t get me wrong, I am grateful for this technology. But it always leaves me feeling a little bit empty.
I miss Sidney so much. Some days I am just heartbroken. FaceTime does help on some level. I love hearing her voice, seeing her face and laughing with her. But, over a year later, I still miss being in her presence. I miss her clatter and the energy she brings into a room. I miss sitting next to her and not saying a word. I miss touching her hair. I miss walking next to her and grabbing her hand to hold. I miss being WITH her.
So yes, technology is a great thing for which I am abundantly thankful … but it will never replace the humanness of just being together.
Well, I hope you all have a day where you find that there is no substitution for the real deal!!!
Today we celebrated a belated Mother’s Day and birthday for my wonderful stepmom. During our little party Sid FaceTimed us … and it was everything I love. The ease of our conversations and our time together (be it electronically or in person) is what makes my heart happiest. I am so very thankful for my family. Goodness, I love them!
Well, I hope you all had a lovely Sunday!!!
We had a busy fun day today! I did some last minute prep around the house for our Thanksgiving Day extravaganza. Then I headed out with Libs and Ree for some shopping at the mall. We came home, made dinner and baked cookies. A LOT of cookies! Later we delivered cookie boxes to our neighbors and then FaceTimed Sidney at school. The weather started changing as the day wore on too. It officially FEELS like the holidays to me. And I love it! It is such a wonderful warm feeling. The energy it resonates is fantastic. And today was pretty darn close to perfect.
Well, I hope you all had a day that you enjoyed the heck out of!!!
Today I am thankful for FaceTime and being able to see Sidney’s beautiful face in real time.
Well, I hope you all had a day where technology made your heart happy!!!
