Snap Chat 28 October 2015

Alex took this in Ireland.

I love Snap Chat because it gives me a short glimpse into someone’s world of right now. They can be halfway across the world or right next door and I get to share a tiny piece of their day.

I especially like it when my brother and sisters send a snap-it is one way we stay close. I love the ones I get from my younger son, Alex too. They make me smile and that is a blessing.

It’s one of those things where, when you see something and think-gosh, I wish so-and-so could see this, then you snap it and they are there with you. There are also “official” snaps from different countries and events around the world and those are always enjoyable because of the connection you feel to a completely different community. I don’t know how they cobble all of those together, but I enjoy them.

I know in this digital age, many want to speak of the “evils” of all these apps and technology, and I hear those voices. I get that we can check out of reality and stay in a virtual world. I’m just as convinced that there is a place for this digital communication because it connects us all in ways our grandparents could never dream of.
