I grew up without a computer in the house...shocking I know. We didn't get a computer until I was probably in 7th grade. It had sweet programs like "Where in the world is Karmen San Diego" and had a DOS operating system...can you say awesome!? I didn't even have a cell phone until high school...
I'm not so old that they weren't invented they were just bigger than my backpack!
Now the world relies on technology. I don't think there is a day that goes by that I'm not on the computer! It's a love/hate relationship with technology. I hate it because I hear and see way to much about what is going on in people's lives. News flash...I don't really care where you are every second and who you are with.
I am thankful for it though because it allows me to connect with my family and friends. I love that within minutes I can take a picture and send it to all my family! I love that in a few clicks I can get a recipe to fix for my hubby. I love that with a few scrolls I can be educated with the goings-on in the world.
I'm thankful for technology because we can capture and share our lives with family and friends faster than snail mail.
I mean, seriously, who wouldn't want this picture in their inbox?!
