Best Christmas Ever!

Every year I run myself ragged looking for the perfect presents for my son.  And, I live for the screams as he tears into the wrapping paper to discover his new toys.  Then, I wait for it…”This is the best Christmas ever!” he exclaims.  Now, my Christmas is complete.

But, this year I received an additional present.  After I received my screams and “This is the best Christmas ever,” he handed me a package.  With a big smile, he said “open it mommy.”  So, I opened the package and found a framed certificate with “MOM OF THE YEAR!” across the top of page.  I was happy with my Mom of the Year award.  Then, my husband handed me my glasses and said, “read the fine print.”  In tiny print below the title, my son had listed everything that I do for him everyday and how much he appreciates me.  Filled with emotion, I declared “Best Christmas Ever!”

Social Media Friend or Foe?

Until yesterday, I would have said a resounding Friend.  However, yesterday someone inserted a porn site on my Facebook timeline, which sent it out to all of my friends.  Thankfully, one of my friends contacted me to let me know that my Facebook account had been hacked.  I immediately logged into Facebook and removed the site.  But, I am afraid that damage was done to my friends and family.

Despite this set back to my Facebook account, I still love the community that Facebook creates for all of us.  It allows me to keep in touch with family and friends spread throughout the US.  Also, it has allowed me to meet people all over the world, and find out how much we have in common.  I still consider Social Media a friend, but I am more cautious now.  What has been your experience with Social Media?
