Forty Days of Gratitude: Day Twenty-Six

I am grateful for the ease of communication that we enjoy today.  I caught a bit of a "MASH" episode the other night, and Hawkeye Pierce asked a fellow soldier, returning state-side, to call his father in Crabapple Cove, Maine, and let dad know he is okay. 

I thought, "Huh".  It struck me how really tough communications were even just 60 years ago, not just for the military, but for everyone.  I had an aunt who believed every long distance phone call was a portend of bad news.

While many of us are inundated by Facebook, email, twitter, voice mail messages and the rest, it is great to know we can speak to friends and family anywhere on the planet with such ease.
