I'm so thankful that I have this option to keep in touch with my daughters and grandchildren. We're also on a photoblog program and exchange photos with each other as well as my son in law, niece and my sister and now my husband has decided to join in the fun. Then there's e-mail and they read my blog, too, from time to time. One of my daughter's has her own blog http://stinkpotstudio.blogspot.comWe still talk on the phone and keep in touch, there's nothing like hearing their voice, but the computer is a very powerful tool. It also keeps me in touch with you and your life through blogging and that's just plain wonderful.
My point is I only wish that my mother and I could have the opportunity that I have with my family. Maybe the computer has a lot of drawbacks but it's pretty darn awesome too.
