Technology is so awesome these days! I have recently been fortunate enough to reconnect with some people from the past thanks to Facebook and I am really loving every second of it. I used to think that these people, who once meant so much to me were forever a distant memory. But thanks to the genius of Facebook, Myspace, Twitter and others, I am able to reminisce. I definitely need to pay homage to the techno geeks out there that are WAY smarter than I could ever hope to be for this gift.
You know, life is so crazy isn't it? The way we live moment to moment, day by day and it seems that the older we get the faster time goes and the less we pay attention to the simplest of things. When we get older, we have so much more on our plates...bills....children......health...family, etc... that we forget on a beautiful spring day to look up at the beautiful blue sky and appreciate the air that we breathe, the food that we eat and all the wonderful people that have come and gone in our lives.
Certain things have happened in my life that make me conscious of the GIFTS of life and how fortunate I am to be living another day with my beautiful family and friends. That said....I am lucky to have the opportunity to tell the people from years ago how much they meant to me and how the memories of that time in my life helped mold me into the person I am today. Yet, even though I have found them, I would never try to relive the past and recapture those moments because times change, people grow and life is different. If we can appreciate this and appreciate life then it will have all been worth it....the good, the bad and the ugly!!!!!!
