The facebook group strikes again!

I'm sure many of you have fallen into what I like to call The Facebook Group Syndrome. It's that brief moment when you want to believe that this time is going to be different. This time the group will build quickly and continue to grow momentum, that you will actually find the time and energy to check back often for posts and pictures that will surely be added. This time the Facebook Group will be successful.

Yesterday it happened to me again. I am getting my hopes up for this page though. The other groups that I have joined have had various reasons for gathering. Mostly the other groups that I am part of are groups where the people only have one thing in A summer mission trip, a show choir, loving Walt Disney World, High get the picture and I'm guessing you also are part of one or two of these type of groups. They get you all excited. They entice you with the promise of renewal, but let's be honest if you really had things in common with these people other than one moment time you would've already stayed in touch.

Anyway....... Today's invitation came for a family group. My Grandmother's (Dad's mom) side of the family decided to start a family group page. I have hope for this to actually be useful and full of promise. These people have blood in common something that should actually make us care about one another. Hopefully we have more common ground to build a facebook group. I am tucking my cynicism in a corner and going to give this group a chance. I can hope!

Here's a sampling of some of the people this group includes:

Okay, maybe my hope is misplaced!


  1. I'm impressed -- your post implies most of your family actually understand and USE Facebook --- most of my family does NOT! :)

  2. I love the second it when everyone just breaks loose and acts silly!!!! except for the guy on the floor..he stayed the same in both out for him!!! hehe
