Ah, social media.
It can build you up or kick you down in the most unexpected of ways. And those “Facebook memories”, man, those get me every damn time.
Today’s was definitely on of my top 3 memories. Really probably third. Yeah, third. First is the day that the picture of C meeting A for the first time in his hospital bed pops up.
Second is going to have to be the day the picture of C, A and I meeting Prince Harry pops up. Not because we’re meeting Prince Harry (which I still think is still pretty cool for Americans. Maybe for Brits too, I don’t know.) but because A is maybe 8 months old, attempting to rip the prince’s hair out of his head, while I’m trying to pry his chubby little fingers away from his head while we all smile for the camera.
And third is today. Not because it’s wildly important to me (it was certainly impressive) but because it was like THE COOLEST thing that had ever happened to C. ESPN ran a story about him. In his head this means he hit the pinnacle of the sports world by reaching ESPN status. And truthfully, the article isn’t completely about him, by any means. It’s about an organization he worked with for fundraising for vets through sports. (I apologize for the vague explaination, I’m not sure I’m ready to give out a too much information just because, well, privacy, kind of. Maybe I’ll come back and post a link to the article when I’m feeling braver.)
He was the happiest person when that article ran. And that’s what makes me happiest. He had a smile plastered on his face for daaaays. And that’s sort of the whole point of social media for me. I don’t like people, so I don’t really use it to talk to them. For me, it’s a scrap book for pictures of my kids, and the happy memories.
Do you have a favorite “memory”?
