Blessing in Disguise
I was angered at first. Then anger lead to mistrust, ill feelings and even a little bout of depression. Then the email frenzy began from angered friends wanting to know why they had been deleted. Some were understanding and some were down right mean. Which made me realize the reality of the internet world. Our friendship only goes as far as a facebook comment or status update. So I can gossip about how your day is going.
It was then that I did a little soul searching and realized just how much time I spend on facebook. My day didnt start with my facebook status or worried about upseting someone when you werent there to comment on there bad day ect ect. Even when my day was bad. I didn't spend the daybeating myself up why no one cares. It was then I told myself..C'mon Lynda this stuff is virtual.
How does one define a friend? I know I'm not the only person who has asked this very question. Friends come in many forms and shapes. But its in those unexpected ones you find the most comfort. That kind email or simple phone call. Dropping by to see you and spread a little love. My list can go on and on.
Then reality set in and the blessing that God had given me was clear. My actions and how I feel doesnt have to be subjected to the masses for judgement. That my wasted time on facebook could be directed to other places and loved ones who really need me. Even to my blog which I love so dearly.
Algerian life can be hectic as it is without added stress. I still dont agree with my mother-in-laws commanding my life. But, you have to take thngs with the punches and consider that she's 80. I can only imagine what I'll be like at that age...God Forbid!
So on that final note I will end this post. Looking forward to talking back with you soon and until then......Happy Cooking!! :)
