Technology Reunites Families

While I have my husband, his family and my boys, I miss my family dearly. Over 500 mile apart and sometimes feels it like thousands.

We lost 2 members of our family this year, my mom and my cousin. Both dying way to young. This has really made me realize how short life is and how important family is. I can’t even imagine not having extended family but for many years while busy starting and raising my own family I took having extended family for granted, assuming they would always be there. Thank God for technology.

If it weren’t for Facebook I¬†probably would have never reconnected with my extended family. I love waking up in the morning and going on Facebook first thing and getting a glimpse in the lives of my family. I love seeing all the pictures of all the nieces¬†and nephew and cousins. I feel like I get to take some part in watching them grow up which would never have been possible pre-Facebook. Because of technology I have been able to reunite with family that I have not communicated with in years and have been introduced to some I have never met.

Thanks to technology I have been fortunate enough to be part of planning a family reunion with my family and the great thing about it is even if I can’t physically be there I can be there via Skype or Facetime.
