When your child leaves the nest, it is hard to suddenly not be able to check on them at any given moment. When they are overseas, it’s hard not to worry about their safety.
Fortunately, advances in technology allow us to see with our own eyes that they are indeed okay. I remember joking about phones that allowed you to see the person on the other end. At the time, I could not see how this would be useful. Now, I can’t imagine how it would be without this luxury.
Thank God that I don’t have to wonder and worry. I get to see with my own eyes — my boy is okay.
