Staying Connected

Hey.

I am one of those people who has a lot of family members. A lot of them are on Facebook and other social media outlets. I thank the media Gods for allowing me to let them know I still care about what’s going on in their lives. I’ve lost the ability to remember the names and birthdates of the children of my siblings and cousins. I can only partially guess the months of certain relatives as it stands. It isn’t because they are less important. It’s because the list often grows. Before you know it, their kids are getting their driver’s licenses, graduating and are reaching other appropriate milestones and the important days of their lives dissipate into the fog of the collection of days seen among every other calendar.

I try my best to stay connected to them and let them know in my own little way that they are still special to me and I’m thankful for their existence. I feel the same way towards friendships and other connections I’ve built along the way.

Let's face it. These are the easiest methods. Image courtesy of Google.

I’m wondering how you manage to stay connected? Are you on the phone a lot, send cards and other stationary (snail mail- which I still do) or do you use your computer, tablet or smartphone to keep up with them? Do you (without the help of notifications) forget, as I often do?
