Laura, we had pretty much the same experience getting Mom up to speed so to speak using internet technology.  She was hardly a hard sell, though, as Dad had been a career communications technician/supervisor with the telephone company since his return from WWII until his retirement. Mom gladly exchanged the need for phone calls for e-mails and facebook postings, in particular to share family news and photos. One positive of internet communication is the absence of frustration trying to negotiate sound levels and clarity of cellphones with her hearing aids.  Talking on the phone also tends to have "time wasted" by rambling conversation, whereas e-mail can be succinct, to the point, and at a convenient time for both sender and receiver---kind of like writing letters . . . .

Laura, I love your writing. I love your conclusion, it kind of choked me up. I can't wait to see Jesus too. And also, it is a reminder to me that I have got to get my mother communicating with me by e-mail. She is becoming profoundly deaf and difficult to carry on a conversation with over the phone.<br><br>Thanks
