As I spend my November thinking about all the things I am thankful for, I can not forget to talk about technology.
That may seem like an odd thing to mention since I’ve talked about family, the house, food, and many other things that people typically mention with being thankful. I’m not a true tech person. I do not have to have the latest and greatest gadgets. I do not buy my kids every tech thing they ask for or let them use tech whenever they want.
I do appreciate what technology allows… a connection with people near and far. I like Facebook and that I was able to reconnect with people from high school and college. I like that my sons can talk to their friends and grandparents on Google Hangouts. I like that Richard and I talk on the phone for his commute home. And, of course I enjoy my blog.
So, I guess for me, technology means connections with people. And, that is why I’m thankful for technology.
