Thank Goodness For Technology

This guest post from my friend Amy Evey
I have a very large family and growing up we were all really close, both geographically as well as emotionally. As times progressed, our paths started to spread further and further apart. Right now, I have a brother who teaches in China, a sister who is a missionary throughout Africa, a brother who is serving in Afghanistan and a lot of cousins and close family friends who have spread their wings all over the world.
All I can say is thank goodness for technology and rural internet service in CO! We all keep blogs and are on various social networks that allow us to share pictures and videos with one another. At any given time, there can be family and friends chatting real time with each other from four different continents. We get to see pictures of sights we could never begin to imagine otherwise. We are able to keep each other updated on the mundane little things as well as the important family announcements that seem to pop up on a regular basis.
When I moved to the country, I was worried that I wouldn't be able to keep in touch since I have heard rural areas don't have a lot of luck with good signals and whatnot, but I have no problem with my internet satellite connection. I am able to keep in touch with every single person who is important to me!

  1. i thank technology for keeping me in touch with my family back home

  2. But then has its limitation. :p and can be quit pricey too.

  3. i have lots of reason to thank technology for. and don't even make me start. hahaha.

    but two of the best benefits i got from technology were to find friends like you and the TSS Sistahs... and my Mikey of course. wink*
