Can We Skype Today?

What a wonderful invention!

With Skype Dad could talk to all of his children and grandchildren.  His family is currently spread across the country. He would call his granddaughter in Taiwan and then check in with his daughter in Florida.  What a bonus to be able to see the person he was talking to.

Since Dad didn’t always have much to say, his grand kids learned to show him pictures and play computer games with him. It became a weekly event to talk to everyone.

After months of this routine, Dad started to get agitated after his Skype conversations.  He would wonder where everyone went.  He couldn’t understand how he had just spoken to his family and seen their faces but they weren’t around.

The computer sits quiet these days but the tradition of Dad calling his family has remained.  Each Sunday, we help him make a call to everyone.
