For many reasons, I felt that my brother and I had sort of drifted apart. I had been missing him. We used to talk all the time and were a part of each other's lives no matter how far away the army took me. He even spent a month with me in Germany. That was his college graduation gift from my parents! We had so much fun together, as we always have. Anyway. I recently spent a weekend creating a slide show for him about us. I wanted to show him how much he meant to me. And pictures really do speak a thousand words.
Pictures are therapy for me. I can remember times, places, people. Pictures make me feel better. Pictures make me smile. Pictures make me feel closer to far away people - like David:<(
I digress. . . So, I sent my dear camera to a Sony approved repair place in Texas. The whole process only took 10 days. Thankfully! I do not think that 10 days seems very long to other people. But to me it was torture. I used my cell phone and I even bought some disposable cameras to get me by. It was not the same, though. AND the camera arrived ready to be back in action just in time for the kids first day of their preschool program. I was able take the pictures and e-mail them to David immediately. Isn't technology wonderful?!
