In a month I will head to the states for a wonderful reason,
My daughters wedding.
My beautiful baby girl is getting married to the man she has chosen to spend her life with. How excited am I?? I will only get a week with her to celebrate in person. But as always, I’m a mere phonecall, text, Skype, or email away.
Technology is a wonderful blessing in this day and age. I was able to witness a couple get married with all their family “attending” via Skype. People at the place were all holding various devices to make sure everyone could see all the events.
That one had the most technology used, but I’ve seen plenty of life events attended via the Internet because of my travels.
I’ve seen engagements with both sets of parents watching via Skype.
A graduation with grandparents on FaceTime in her hand as she walked the line.
My housemate got to see their new godson before he was even taken in to mom. Dad face timed and said, “hey here he is, isn’t he amazing, wanted to make sure you saw him”.
I’m so grateful for the people who help me keep in contact. The people who are there for me, no matter where I am. The people who send me positivity and help me keep going on. I’m grateful for the technology that makes it possible.
I’m so grateful I get to go be at my daughter’s wedding!!!! And don’t have to figure out how to see it through the Internet.
I haven’t posted much of anything about going really because I don’t want to jinx it. A few things have been trying to keep it from happening; but one by one I’m overcoming these little obstacles.
Basically my attitude is, short of death, nothing will stop me. The closer it gets, the more excited I get!
One more month.
I’ll be there Sweetpea.
