Technology. Sometimes it can leave us detached, drained, disconnected if we spend our time hooked up to it 24/7. Yet days like today, when I feel crummy and Emma's still working towards getting better, I am so thankful that I can pick up the phone and talk to my mom. We're separated by 150 miles or so which really sucks when your sick... sometimes you just need your mom. I am comforted by the fact that I can still connect with her though. Think back before electricity and telephone- our time together would be so much less than what it is now. So thank you Ben Franklin and Alexander Graham Bell!
