I reluctantly joined Facebook a couple of months ago.
I say "reluctantly" because the thought of joining felt like one more commitment that I just didn't have the time to work into my already over-booked technology schedule.
Then the peer pressure began.
Some of the girls (make that ALL of the girls) that I work with are on it, and I TOTALLY caved. I've never been really good at "just saying no". But that's another post for another day...
I have to tell you, my foray into the World of Facebook has turned out to be a pleasant surprise for me. Yes, it can become a time-sucking black hole if I allow it to (kinda like blog reading!), but as long as I moderate the time I spend on it, it just good, clean fun.
Not only can I talk to the girls from work online, but I can catch up with old friends too. I've reconnected with some friends from high school and college that I hadn't seen or talked to in years...Friends that I would never have been able to find otherwise.
Two of those lost-and-now-found friends are SUPER special to me. The memories we shared together were always held close to my heart, but I just plain missed the daily/weekly interaction of their presence in my life. It's so exciting to be in contact with those precious gals again.
Today, I met one those friends at the mall for a playdate. Our little girls met each other for the first time. I almost cried from the sweetness of the whole thing (I know, shocker, right?). It was nearly impossible for me to get a picture of the two of them sitting still...but here's my best attempt. I just wanted to eat them up!!!
