Today in class we have a conversation about how technology influences our life and our generation. I am fully aware that I have an unhealthy relationship with my phone and social media, but I wold not be the same without it. In this generation it is a way of life and without it you probably would not fit in, sadly. After class, I looked at my phone and saw two things.
1. A missed called from my friend Leighton
2. A text from my friend Stephanie
These two things aren't uncommon, but having just talked about this topic... I found something to be thankful for.
Technology is tricky because it is so positive and negative at the same time! But today, I chose to ignore the negatives and focus on the positives because without it, I know my friendships would not be the same. I have not seen Stephanie or Leighton in nearly two months, but I feel like I have because I talk to them on a regular basis. Even if it is a little text here and there, it makes a difference. When I came to college I was so worried I was going to miss my friends terribly, some days I do, but technology helps fill that gap. It will never replace physically being with a person, but for many people it saves relationships. I mean think of families who are operated by what feels like a whole world, or a couple who is in a long distance relationship. If this pertains to you, then you know how thankful you are for this. This just so happens to be relevant today because we discussed it in class and then I had a 49 minute long conversation with Leighton, but I am thankful for technology and how it allows me to communicate most of my days. When I got to thinking about, I could not have lived back when there was no option for communication besides letters. Then I would have every reason to be worried.
It's small, but today it is what I am so thankful for!
Can we talk about all this snow that Stuttgart, AR has been getting? Can we also talk about how extremely jealous I am?
It is pretty weird that I am not there! Snow or no snow today has still been a pretty good day!

Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way. A student at Texas Christian University who loves any creative insta post, all donuts, and dress pants that make you do a double take. I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
