Today’s World = such a small place

So how cool is it about today’s world?  It is now such a small place.  When I grew up it seemed hard to even get across the state.  Now my job is a global focus and we all work at times suitable for each time zone.  We all work for the same big picture but in so many places across the world.  A call or webex is normal and languages are very understood.

My cousin now lives in China and still gets home 2x’s year.  She can call us on Skype for free whenever we feel we have the need.

Cartoons that were once so standard are now so educational.  Brianna at the age of 2 knew how to say, “hi,” in Chinese as well as Spanish by simply watching Dora and Ni Hao, Kai-lan.

I find all these enhancements in technology amazing since we are all so the same just spread out across 24,901.55 miles of our planet. We used to think the moon was ours in our area but how wonderful is it that we now think much bigger… Lets face it the phases of the Moon are the same all over the world at the same time.

Now I must brag that my ever so unique quilt that I ordered on Etsy is traveling to us from Bulgaria a country in South East  Europe.

  1. I know very well that quilt creator. She makes wonderful things.
    I own two of her works now.
    And a small correction … Bulgaria is a country in south-eastern EUROPE.

    • Thanks! and what an embarrassing typo! The exciting thing is that you took the time to read our blog:-) We blog our thoughts and print all pages for my daughter’s memory book. It is our digital way of creating a scrap book. You can so see the love in the quilts…. Have a great day!
