This weekend is Canadian Thanksgiving. I realize that is a hard concept for those south of the 49th parallel, but for those that embrace a more North American approach, you can have turkey in Oct and then again in late November if you plan your family gatherings properly!
We had a big dinner on the Friesen side of the family last night. Lots of laughs, ping-pong and of course Chris was never far from our thoughts.
During the latter part of dinner we Skyped Steve and Meggan in South Carolina. I know many families are doing this regularly, but I still love the concept of passing a wireless connected laptop (a Mac of course) around the table and for the next 45 minutes of the call it was if the miles were erased. They had a conversation with each of the 20 people present and it felt like the family was more complete!
With the passing of Steve Jobs this past week, I began to wonder last night if he would continue his amazing technology push on the other side of our human existence. Could we maybe Skype to heaven in the future? I know it sounds crazy, but I’m only half joking. If anyone can do it, it will be Steve Jobs…and when he does, I hope that Chris has signed up to be a beta tester.
Have a great week.
