Ok, we are empty-nesters and Skype is one of my favorite inventions in recent history. Having a daughter living away from home, I am so thrilled to grab 15 or 20 minutes to video chat and SEE and HEAR MY CHILD!
We have lost several friends recently through illness and unfortunate circumstances and it made me appreciate this internet tool even more. We should all stop and take the time to make phone calls, write cards/emails/Facebook and Skype with loved ones regularly. If you are thinking of someone, contact them now.
