Long Distant Relationships. . . .

. . . . are so very hard.  Especially when it comes to family.  Sometimes I think Jenny may as well live in Guam she is so far away.  It's not like I can just hop in the car on a whim and visit. It's a twelve hour hike, an all day affair.  No need to think about a day trip or even long weekend excursions.  It takes a good day to get there and another to get back.  Not much time for visiting!  It. Just. Plain. STINKS!

Lately Alicia has been calling me when Baby Girl goes down for her morning nap.  It is wonderful.  We chat about everything we can think of.  Today we cyber "window shopped" Wally World and Tar-ge` for dishes.  We found some pretty ones in red and black ~ her color choices for her kitchen someday.  We talked about decorating styles.  Of things she wants to accomplish.  We compared "baby notes".  We talked about school and work.  We visited via the "airway".  Then reality called my name ~ AKA ~ baby garble ~ and our visit had to end.  So we said our "I love you"'s and our "goodbye"'s.  And our day continued on ~ each of us doing the things we were called to do. 

Being so far from ones I love is a pot hole in my road called "Life".  But it is one that can be maneuvered around.  Especially when there's a comforting voice on the other side.
