Spending time with family is very important to me….so much so that I hesitated when considering the military way of life with my husband.
I had a fear of being thousands of miles away from family and not being able to stay in touch with them.
I also had a fear of being pregnant in a strange place, about to deliver a baby with a deployed husband.
So far, none of my fears have become reality. (Knocks on wood)
Besides, you know what fear is, right?
But that’s another post. Let me get back on topic.
A little over a month ago, I went to visit family with our son and I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly he took to his grandparents. His memory must be better than I thought.
He had a wonderful time with his cousins. He laughed and played his little heart out. He instantly connected with them and it made me smile that he was so happy. He got a chance to go to the Fair with them and to Chuck E. Cheese, along with many other fun play dates.
One of the highlights of our two-week trip with family was the Skype video chats.
I was able to get my family and my husband’s family together for several group video chats with my husband. A few of the video chats were a surprise to him. It meant so much to my husband to be able to see our extended family, even if it was on Skype.
I encourage you to take some time today to think about your relationship with your family.
No one is promised tomorrow, so always make sure you let your family members know how much they mean to you.
