i LOVE LOVE LOVE FACEBOOK. it makes me laugh. i always try to post something relevant to my life. pretty or ugly. in hopes of getting the elusive "i know how you feel! I've done the same thing!" even a little "lol" makes me happy. FB is a way for me not to feel alone. bert and i have argued over this subject....."how come you tell random people stuff that you do not even tell me??" i understand the question. i get it. i just do not know exactly how to answer. maybe it is because i need empathy. for hard times in the mom world. he's not a mom. he will try to fix the problem. also, i need to laugh about my life and others.
i also enjoy God's gift of encouragement. i LOVE to encourage others.
one thing about facebook that i love is the feeling that you get that you are not the only one home. others are also at home, alone,kids napping, procrastinating the inevitable PILE of laundry. they need to see what others are doing. i, like to post. so shoot me.
one important thing about facebook is the fact that you can find out things that have happened that you might not EVER know. the death of a "friend's" sister, parent, or even their horse! this gives opportunity to flood their "wall" with love, prayer and condolences.
facebook is funny. here is an example of my most recent post: (names changed)
