i’m thankful for social media. i live 12+ hours away from my entire family and a lot of old friends, but thankfully through social media, i can keep up with them. i LOVE knowing what is going on with the people i don’t get to see often (and even with the people i do). of course, nothing is better that face to face conversations…and phone calls are always nice too. but when those options aren’t possible due to distance and conflicting schedules, things like facebook, twitter, instagram, etc. are wonderful.
