365 Grateful – Day #11 – Facebook Newsfeeds

Phew!  Two nights now this week that I've fallen asleep before 9pm.  I think this weather change is starting to get to me :)  I had this post all ready to go and for some reason just thought I'd send it before bed.  Whoopsie daisies. Today (yesterday) I am grateful for Facebook's handy newsfeeds of your favorite friends and family.  I'm not the best at keeping up with everyone's lives but I wish I were.  I have so many friends and family that are in my thoughts and prayers often.  All it takes is a song on the radio or a random flashback to remind me of the good times I've had with them to make me wonder how things are going in their lives.  And as much as I would love to sit down and give them all a call individually I simply don't have the time or energy to do so (that'd be a lot of phone calls with Caden screaming in the background).

With Facebook news feeds I can be waiting in line at the grocery store, pumping gas, using the facilities (haha you know you do it too), and catching up with old friends all at the same time.  Just today I saw that an old family friend who I grew up with and loved dearly had moved states, got a great job, had a new love and was on the road to recovery from past ailments.  All in the span of 30 seconds.  I am so grateful for the technology that exists today and the social networking that allows me to stay on top of people's lives.

***Side note I'm DYING to see the movie Social Network :)
