Be Thankful for Reciprocated Love in Oahu Homes

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Best Homes Hawaii RB-13537

Reciprocated Love during Thanksgiving. There’s never a better feeling!

Grand KidsGrankids – With Facetime, What’s App, Skype, Viber and other on-line video chat applications, we get to see our family often.  In our case, it’s daily.  A wonderful way of keeping up with the ‘younguns’ and family (Some countries ban this type of communicating).

In this very busy day to day life, video chatting is a great way to stay in touch.
Almost every night, we are able to “help” tuck the grand children in bed.  Much of the time, they also reciprocate love by contacting us when they awaken!

A few nights ago, we were on line vid chatting with our 8 months old grandson.
He looked at their screen on the otherside and gave out a BIG open mouthed smile, with NO TEETH!  Now, THAT’S reciprocated LOVE!

When our 3.5 year old grand daughter gets on line, there’s NO STOPPING her talking.  She even knows how to call and hang up!  To me, that’s SHEAR LOVE!  She talks about her day’s activities, what she has eaten, what she has done, what her friends have done, what mommy and daddy have done, on and on and on!

You have to appreciate the fact that you can connect via WiFi without cables. There used to be a time when people had to DIAL a phone or be on a PARTYLINE!

Landon Ju JitsuThen, at another part of the island, we are able to talk to our 13 year old grandson, who is proud of his Ju Jitsu awards (the shortest one). He even tells me about his computer games, how to set up our WiFi and Cat5 lines and more!

This Holiday, our daughter, son in law and children will travel to his boyhood home in Kona, Hawaii for a visit.  We will have a Thanksgiving day with our son and his family about 25 miles from our home. Reciprocated Love!

Hi Bruce - technology certainly enhances relationships that become separated because of distance.  You are able to experience joy in many ways.

Ah yes, remember those party lines well.  Now, we use Facebook to gossip amongst ourselves.  In the old days, we only needed to listen in on a party line.

Hi Bruce- we've come so far with technology. It wasn't that long ago (2004) when my husband was in Northern VA working while I stayed behind to sell our home. This was pre-iPhone so I bought a gadget so we could make video calls to each other. Now look how easy it is.

So true Kathy Streib .  Seems like EVERY month there is some new software or hardware that changes the way we do business.
