I love Facebook! When Papa the Farmer and I got married I moved to Texas from Canada to be with him, leaving all my friends and family behind. So when Facebook came along I was very excited to have a quick way of keeping up with everybody all at once!
Papa the Farmer had a Facebook account for a while. He deleted it a year or two ago. He keeps telling me how great life-after-Facebook is! “Delete it and you will never look back!” he says. The fact is, he would be a very happy husband if I deleted my Facebook account.
Facebok is time consuming.
Being a good Wife, Mother, Keeper of the Home, Homeschool Teacher and Farm-lady is also time consuming.
I belong to a great Moms’ Bible Study group. These wonderful women challenge me to be the best wife and mother I can be.
I could be a better wife if I deleted my Facebook Account.
I could be a better mother if I deleted my Facebook Account.
I could be a better Keeper of the Home if I deleted my Facebook Account.
I would probably read my Bible more if I deleted my Facebook Account. (ouch!)
So, as a gift of love to my dear husband, I am taking the plunge and deleting my personal account.
I will be very interested to see how this goes. I have a feeling that this will turn out to be a gift of love to myself, too.
Does anyone want to join me? If you want to take the plunge and become Facebook-Free with me, please post in the comments! I would love to have some company! Because I really like Facebook and I think I’m going to be going through withdrawal for a little while….
