The title of this blog entry is borrowed from a Garth Brooks song (Papa Loved Mama). Happily, there is no connection between the events of his song (infidelity) and the events that lead me to this post.
Most of us behave a certain way around our family and a different way around our friends- some of us more so than others. I certainly chose my words more carefully around my family as some of them are very conservative. It doesn’t mean I’m not being myself- it’s just a more reserved version of me. And for the longest time my friends world and my family world simply didn’t ever see each other. But no longer- my family is online and on Facebook and reading my blog! It was in indeed bound to happen and well, last night it did!
It hit me last night when my sister finally joined Facebook. Not that I am unhappy about that- I have been bugging her for ages to join! But somehow her friend request got me thinking, and as anyone who’s read this blog more than once knows- when I get to thinking I get to blogging!
The lines between the different worlds we inhabit are getting more and more blurred with the advances in wireless technology and the popularity of social networking sites like Facebook. I don’t know if that is good or bad but the fact is it’s happened and now we all have to figure out how to make it work. Maybe this is old news for some of you but it’s a new place for me. Any comments/ thoughts on how you’ve adapted would be welcome!
