    Actually, it is a very trying time and has distanced us a lot from our loved ones. However, it feels good knowing you have been keeping contact with your family members. I have been distanced with my family took but the major ways of communicating with them has been through Skype and also face time calls. Thank you so much for sharing here

      Hi Emman, thanks for reaching out to me about my article.  Yea, we are pretty lucky that social media is what it is right now, or the isolation would be crippling.  I know when my daughter was at sea with the Navy, we could email each other every day.  Back in the time of WWII, a mom would go months without knowing if her son was alive or dead.  I count myself so lucky!  So, yea, the plan is to call my family every once in a while to check on them and know they are not alone in this time of crisis.  Thanks again for reading and commenting!  RhondaLeigh

    It’s been a godsend that our recent technology can help to keep us socially connected in this time of extreme physical distancing. I’ve been able to catch up with friends from all over the country in videoconferencing chats — it’s not the same as hanging out in person but it is still a great way to connect. 

    Thanks for sharing some ideas of people and ways to connect with those who most need someone to check in on them.

      Hi Aly, thanks for reading my post.  Yup, we are pretty lucky that we live in a time where we can connect without physical contact.  I saw on our local news that they were interviewing people at a distance on cell phones while they were taking video from a safe distance, and I thought, how ingenious!  So, yea, thank goodness we can be connected.  Otherwise, I think I might go a little crazy.  Thanks again for your insights!  RhondaLeigh
