Thankful-Day 12 (Al Gore & the Internet)
I'm thankful for Al Gore-because HE "invented" the internet! LOL! Truthfully I am thankful for the internet. With all of it's pitfalls and temptations, it is a remarkable tool. It helps me keep in better touch with those I care about. I'm a sanguine. People are important to me. The internet lets me share more of my sister's life. She lives far away! I've never even been to her house but I can see photos and videos of her crazy turkeys and it makes me feel a little more connected. It has provided me with many wonderful recipes that my family loves. It has given me many gift ideas that I can actually afford. It has let me explore far away places that I can only dream of visiting without having to sit on the hard floor of Barnes and Noble. I can just curl up on my bed and go anywhere I please. Maybe this doesn't sound too spiritual, but life's pleasures are also a gift from God who desires us to live in joy here on the earth and to enjoy all the wonderful things He has created and provided us.
