A Video Clip That Touches My Heart!
Being away from home myself, I was deeply touched by this video clip uploaded in You Tube by a mother showing her 2 year old daughter reacting to the pre recorded video of her father who is a military and working away from home.
I have first seen this video featured on CNN and I became interested to find it on You Tube. The 2 year old girl here is so cute and smart and was really reacting to her father's story as if he was really infront of her in flesh.
According to the news, her father recorded this video before he headed back to work with a desire of being able to bond with her daughter even while away from home. I guess, he was successful in his objective judging by the way his daughter reacted to his pre recorded video. I am just loving the idea of how technology can help us in so many ways more than we can ever imagined.
Somehow, I could relate to this coz I am on similar situation and more often, I am communicating with my family through Skype or YM. I love that idea coz I can see them through the webcam while talking to them. Somehow, it eases the boredom and sadness and you can feel that "connection".
I remembered how my daughter used to show me on webcam any new thing that she just had...from books, to clothes, to cell phone even when she got a new puppy. This really helps a lot. I could not imagine working away from home in the absence of internet and all those amazing technology.
This video clip and those things that I experienced myself while being away from home only proves one thing....that distance is not a hindrance to show your love and affection to people who matters most to you.
Entertaining these happy thoughts, made me realized...we are blessed and I thank God for that!
