A state of mind

Since 2016, The greatest portion of my thoughts have been clouded by a sense of impending danger.

One of the results of this is that I find myself, literally, hungry for good news. I suspect I’m not the only one who feels this way and so I am going to share some good news.

A number of years ago my youngest daughter, who I raised as a single parent, moved across the country. In her second year away my granddaughter was born. From the time she moved I have been able to see her and speak to her, and my granddaughter. I visit twice a year and in the months between we frequently FaceTime and share everything from new toys to bedtime stories. Today’s technology has allowed us to remain part of each other’s lives in a way that has never been possible until this decade.

I recently turned 70. The children are grown and I have retired. Being single, and living in an extremely rural area, I spent a great deal of my time alone. I can only imagine what people in my situation felt before cell phones, FaceTime, zoom, and all the other ways in which we are now connected, were possible.

Now let’s see how connected we can stay❤️
