Facebook and Friends

I realized this morning that the most beautiful gifts from others are words of encouragement.

Facebook gets some very bad press. Yes, there is always a bad side to good things but I’d like to discuss the good side for a moment.

Our busy lives have distanced us from loved ones and friends. Through Facebook, I have reconnected with former schoolmates and distant family. I’ve made a few new friends too. This medium has had a profound effect on the quality of my life.

I’ve met people who would be otherwise housebound and alone if not for computer socializing. Online relationships give us a chance to see people as they are, beautiful souls with encouraging words, insightful comments and something to share.

I am thankful to all my Facebook family for reminding me to offer encouragement to others, as often as I can, whether they are “in person” or online. Your comments have given me comfort and I believe it is very important to pass this on.

We’re all in this together my friends 🙂

    Wonderful, Susan. I also have met some very nice people who otherwise, I would likely have never met otherwise.

      I am so pleased to have you as a friend…God works in mysterious ways for sure. 🙂

    Very well said! I’ve managed to keep in touch with the virtual members of my writing circle through facebook and they have all agreed it is a wonderful source of encouragement and fellowship. It’s how you use it that counts.

Tell me something good...
