Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.


Last night at church I was asking Hannah when she was going to write a new blog.  She said that I really needed to get on facebook.

Ugh!! One more bit of techno cyber babble that I have to muddle through.  Just the thought of going through the whole process made me nauseous.  Then I thought to myself ‘just do it’.  Once again a reminder of how valuable good advertising is. 

So after church I plunge in with both feet.  Haven’t got a clue what I was doing or if it would even amount to anything.  Just about the time I think I am in over my head, this little red box appears and Tonya has sent me a message.  What a dear friend.  Isn’t that what friendship is all about?  She was right there to welcome and encourage me.

Next thing I know there is another red box.  A friend who I hardly ever see anymore, but is very dear to me, has sent me a message.  So now I am pumped up and ready to continue down the road called facebook.     

While I would love to sit down and chat face to face, it seems that isn’t always feasible.   I can log onto facebook in my jammies, any hour I want and whenever I want.  This does have its appeal.   

I am grateful for friends – Friends who come along side me, giving me a bit of push when I need it  – who also encourage me and speak into my life.

Life is good

til next time

  3. Welcome, honey!

    As is common knowledge, I’m a total Facebook-tard.

    As long as nobody expects me to check in or anything, I’m good.

    I’m sure you’ll do MUCH better (or not). :->
