Today I’m thankful for social media!
I toy with the idea of turning off almost all forms of social media, for the most part it drives me bonkers! However, in times like this when we are not allowed to see friends and family in person I am so dang thankful for FB and Instagram! It allows me to see how those I love are getting through this strange time and stay in touch. I have gotten so many good ideas and resources for home base learning opportunities for Sky, and weekly video chats with friends/family are keeping me going right now!
And, for real if not for YouTube I would not be able to help Sky with her Math work at all. So thankful for that!
I’m especially thankful Sky can video chat with friends. It’s the only way she has of independently (I can see every request and can listen in on chats to monitor if I need to or want to) maintaining her friendships right now. It’s a new “thing” to navigate for her and to learn how to handle zoom meeting with multiple people etc, but I’m thankful she can stay in touch with friends, because lets face it Mom and Dad get old real fast!
It’s so easy to get caught up in the worry and stress of world events, and plain old boredom with being home. But I truly believe there is something to be thankful for every day, even if the day is not the best…What are you thankful for?
