Computers Need Love Too

I'm awful, followers. Truly, truly awful. It's been - oh, dear technological degenerative traits of mine - far too long since I've written in this beloved little portal of thought. (In my defense, I haven't had a functional computer at my disposal since springtime. Even now, I'm using a borrowed laptop. ) I could come up with a million excuses, but who would want to read those? ;)

Computers - and computer problems - are not exactly my forte. Technology simply eludes me most of the time. Honestly, I type about 11 words per minute, can rarely turn a computer on for the first time without some help, and spent 2 1/2 minutes staring at a computer screen with the face of a friend in it while I wondered what a "skpe" was. I'm far to young to be this dang old.

However, recently I've discovered that the computer really is a very useful tool for communication, and I've been giving it a bum rap.

"I HATE technology. . . "

But I use it to read, write, speak, and learn.


"Some people spend way too much time on Facebook. . ."

But I can, with only a click, see the faces of far-off friends and be a part of their world.


I really abhor love-hate relationships. They don't work in life, they don't work in theory, and they DEFINITELY don't work in technology. So, Lord willing me the ability, I'm back for awhile, with a better attitude. Sound good?


I'm praying for you guys, even if I don't know the whole story most of the time. (Sometimes, it's better that way. There ARE a few creeps on the Internet.) God knows, though.


With a "Happy Veterans' Day!" and "Make a wish!" on 11-11-11, I'll be praying for you, reading your blogs, and showing some love to this world of computer-generated life. God bless.
