Modern Technology: Something to Marvel At

It's always a wonderful surprise when people who enjoy reading my blog leave a comment, send me an e-mail or find me on Facebook. It's what makes all the time and effort I put into blogging worth it.

I recently got a friend request on Facebook from a Japanese woman named Mikiko with this personal message: "hello. my name is mikiko. i happenned to see your blog, and i liked it a lot. there must be a better expornation to it, but i am lack of vocabulary... so. anyway, i thought it would be nice if i could be friend with you. mikiko."

There is definitely a language barrier between my new friend Mikiko and me and I'm sure that some things are getting lost in translation, but we're making it work. I understand just about everything she says, and she says that she understands most of what I say. Mikiko was in a car accident when she was 15 and has been paralyzed for the past 20 years (she can use her arms, but not her hands). We share a lot of the same feelings about our situations and it's been fun to correspond with her and learn what her life is like.


I love how blogging has opened doors for me. I'm having experiences that I never dreamed I would. So, 'hello' to everyone reading this post, wherever you are!

Hi Heather, I have enjoyed reading your blog for the past few weeks and finally decided now was a good time to stop "stalking" and introduce myself. I am Cindy, mom to six children and eight grandchildren. I love your positive attitude about life! Thank you for sharing!

Hi heather. How are you? Just as same as what Cindy says, I also love your positive attitude. That is what I probably need more. Thank you for becoming my friend.
