I am thankful for the technology we have today. I can text with someone in Hawaii, chatting as it were in real time! I can get on my computer and use Skype to talk via live stream video with a friend or relative, there is an app for just about anything and everything you can think of, including birthday candles in case you forgot to buy them when you picked up the cake. Even GPS on our phones that is pinging cell towers that can help track down a lost person if their phone is on. I am absolutely blown away by it all and love it all as well. Guess rather than be overwhelmed the ADD in me cannot get enough of the newest, coolest technology crack as it is released! All of which helps me stay connected to family and friends. Yes, I could pick up a phone and call, but with a family that all works odd shifts, this way questions and reaching out to touch someone can be done and responded too far more easily. And then not to mention the new friends I’ve made around the world via the various social media available. I love technology and I am so thankful for it!
