|She's supposed to be sleeping at this moment.|
She's not sleeping.
She's yelling at me.
But this picture tells me she was once happy.
I have hope that she will be happy again.
Can I just say, in this new stage of life, with crazy baby hours (the hours are crazy, not the baby!), I'm super thankful for facebook? First of all, I get to put sweet pictures of RG up there, for the world to see. And I'm not so concerned about the world's ability to see them, but rather family far away (as all of our family is). Moms, Grandmas, Uncles, they all get to peek in and keep up with RG's newest fat roll. I know they love it.
And the messages. Like, the private messages you send to people? It's almost like getting a letter in the mail. Except its instant. And you're more likely to receive a message from someone you don't know all that well, but who, hypothetically, knows your mom and heard you were having trouble with sleeping and would like you to, hypothetically, know that she's praying for you and if you have any questions, she's successfully raised 2 girls past the infant stage and would be happy to lend an ear. Hypothetically.
Or maybe you get a message from an old friend. Not that the friend has to be old, but the friendship itself. Maybe you hypothetically get a message from an old-friendship-kind-of-friend. And you message back. And then you repeat. And turns out you're not just old friends, you're still friends. And you support each other and share in each other's struggles and excitement. Like, hypothetically, the expecting of a new bambino (not me, the friend. hypothetically).
So I'm learning that facebook can be used for good, and doesn't have to be used for evil. And by evil, I mean oversharing and "like this page to win a free iPad" and drama and "You have 5 requests for CandyTown". It's giving me a chance to reach out a little more, to expand my circle. And I'm really liking that!
What good have you used facebook for recently?
