Meeting people over the internet has become my social world. It is great that I can talk with another mother of a large family in the States and can talk with someone that shares the same faith as me in many different countries around the world. It is also good that I can educate myself and know more about the Catholic faith.
Living in Rural Australia is limiting. We don't know any other large Catholic families that live here. But through the internet I can talk with other mothers that have struggles just like me and share the joys that having a big family bring. I also like learning about the church in other places and hearing of some peoples journey into the Catholic faith. It is very encouraging for my faith when I read about God working in other peoples life.
I also like the internet because I am a very shy person. Talking over the internet to a person that I have never meet before is much easier than approaching some new person irl.
So Thanks to all my internet friends for your friendship. Thanks for encouraging me in my faith and for all the prayers you offer for me.
