The Wonder of Facebook
One of my favorite changes is social networking. I really love Facebook, not just because it allows me to pretend I'm being productive when all I'm really doing is reading other people's walls, but because it affords a way of connecting that was never available before.
And through Facebook, I've been able to dialog with people I'd probably never have a chance to meet in my "real" life, like authors Anne Rice and Fr. James Martin, as well as people from all over the world. Because of Facebook, I was able to get real time pictures of the revolution in Egypt when it happened, for instance.
The reason I'm mentioning this today is because of my 2012 commitment to becoming more aware of things to be grateful for in my life. Who would have known that a social network site on the internet would become such a major source of thanks?
But it has.
And it is.
