Yes, I am on facebook. Christy introduced it to me and I fought it for the longest time not wanting to waste my time. And yes, it can be a waste of time. I know some people who spend hours and hours on it texting, uploading so many photos, playing games etc… I thought it might be a good way to reconnect with those who are interested. Not that I am really chatty on it. I basically punch in what I am doing on a particular day and that is that. Sometimes I don’t go on it for days. Like one time I posted that I was reading a book to Kati and it was there for 4 days!
Yesterday, I was minding my own buisness trying to get some thank you notes written when Christy came to me and said have you checked your inbox on your facebook account. “No” I replied. “Well you had better take a look right now!” “Why” “Just do it Okay there is someone you want to see” So I opened it up and was amazed. Now I do know that it IS called the WORLD WIDE web, but really struck me at that moment.
Back in 1993-94 I spent a year in Stavropol Russia with the CoMission teaching teachers how to use school curriculum of Morals and Ethics based on the Bible. I was part of a team of 12. It was one of the hardest years of my life and one of the best years of my life. Anyway, as I opened up the Facebook Inbox I was reading a note from one of our translators from my time in Russia. Since then I have been finding others from my team on facebook.
I am finding rather fun remembering them and times we had together and wondering what are they up to now. I am sure I will be finding out more about them and they me in the coming weeks.
It also causes me to stop and think. How did have I grown since I have last seen them? How did I come off to others way back then, I turned 21 while there and was pretty young. Okay, enough facebook and blogging back to thank you note writing.
Have a good weekend.
