FYI, I was born and raised well before the computer was invented. We used pens and telephones to communicate our thoughts, feelings and secrets. We couldn’t afford to talk more than three minutes on a long distance call because it was too expensive. Somehow we got by.
Moving on to the computer age hasn’t been easy…witness all the mistakes I make… but I’m realizing the benefits every day. For instance, this week, I had the opportunity to talk with four different stepmoms on three different radio shows across the country. These women hosts are full of energy and knowledge about today’s stepfamilies. They’re curious to learn more. The best part is that they’re inspired/motivated to spread their information to stepmoms who struggle in their own families. What I wouldn’t have given to have had this opportunity in my early days of Stepcoupling! I would have been glued to the computer for wise words from the experts for HELP. It’s magical to look back and see how far we’ve come.
Thanks Susan Swanson, Jacque Fletcher, Erin Erickson and Peggy Nolan for having me on your shows. I loved being with all of you!
