Now for those of you who have been following my blog for some time, and you have read my book (thank you, by the way!) you know we've had the pleasure of having high(ish) speed internet for over 18 months. Long are the days that we had to search for a signal up on the mountain, behind the one-room school or down in Copey. Seems like a distant memory now. I received an email from my best friend telling me she's having huge issues with her internet connection and she lives just outside Ottawa (Canada)... so, yes, living in the Costa Rican cloud forest, is awesome, but the internet kinda makes it heavenly.
However, I never ever want to take it for granted, especially on a day like today when I can Skype my mother, see her face and tell her how much I lover her. And for my kids to Skype me... to see their faces... there is no greater gift! I went onto Facebook this morning and the outpouring of love from mothers, to mothers, to women who are nurturers... it's very uplifting. And there's a very good chance at some point today I'll be chatting with one or two of my friends on one of the social media outlets. And the opportunity to write my blog posts and have so many people stay in touch with our adventure... sometimes silently, but I know you're there... keeps my world go round.
So yes, I am grateful today and everyday for the gift of connectivity.
