I have little biological family alive, and they mostly live in Germany. Though I used to travel over there about every three years, I have trouble walking, and also have trouble sitting for long periods now. Therefore I haven't been travelling to see them.
I try to call my sister in law each week or two, because she doesn't use computers or smart phones. However, due to the time difference and the small children involved, I use a texting program called What's APP to send and receive texts and pictures to the younger family. These are the pictures I got on Christmas. Aren't they beautiful?
