When your loved one is far from home staying connected through a video chat can be a lifesaver.
Even if you don't use the video portion because the Internet connection is sloooow and just use the audio portion, it is a-maz-ing to be able to communicate this way.
Here is what I've learned from talking to my husband through my computer screen:
I realize not every deployment or time away from your spouse offers the ability to keep in contact via video chat. Lack of communication is one of toughest parts of being separated from the one you love. Not knowing how they are, where they are, if they are safe, if they have enough to eat, if they have a warm place to sleep can be very stressful.
But for today, I'm thankful for this unique opportunity to communicate in this way.
The last thing I've learned (so far) is the person who invented Skype should be inducted into some sort of military spouse Favorite Things Hall of Fame.
Okay, now where is that Skype icon...
