Sending your loved one pictures is another way to include them in the everyday. Take today for example. Our son was out playing with our dog, which is a rare occurrence when our pup is 2.5 times the size of our youngest kid. Knowing that he would find it as amazing as me, I grabbed my camera and started clicking. Thanks to my digital camera (BEST Bday gift ever!) and my laptop, he was looking at the pictures while the "kids" were still playing. Instant involvement.
Something else we started doing a few years back when we were separated by distance was take pictures of places that we loved and sent them back to each other, promising to go there when we were together. We also take pictures of some pretty random stuff that reminds us of "us".
I have a LOT of pictures... lol... about 12G to be exact and whenever I'm at a loss of words... I can count on there being something in my picture folder to get the point across.
Today I got to see pictures of where my love is staying, where he sleeps, where he's been, what he's seen, and it was great to see his adventure... and share it with him to become our adventure.
