Love this post. Even though I am very guilty of texting instead of talking (I have very poor cell service in a lot of areas) I do miss a time when technology was not a part of everything.
Can anyone else relate?

About ramblinann

I live in Massachusetts and always have. My family continues to grow with the addition of many grandchildren, who steal my heart every time I see them. Recently I was able to check off an item on my bucket list and earn my Associate Degree in Complementary Healthcare, but usually, I can be found sitting behind the wheel of a big yellow school bus. I love to write, though there seems to be some missing connection between my thoughts and the ability of my fingers to put those thoughts on paper, or the screen in this case.

    Great post. I tend to get caught up in the “I don’t have time to (fill in the blank)” if it consists of actually DOING something in person. I’ll text, email, forward, Google or reply all day long, but ask me to come over and help you weed your garden and I go all whiny and impatient. Society has definitely turned us into “instant gratification” people and if we’re asked to slow down and actually DO something (especially for someone else), it’s like the end of the world. I literally have to tell myself that I should be grateful for those rare moments when my family wants to hang out with me or do something other than communicate via a technological device. I don’t ever want to lose a loved one and look back and wish I could’ve spent more time with them, you know?

    I never texted but got into the habit because with my old prepaid cell it was cheaper to text then talk. LOL Now with the new grandbaby I know I can text and my daughter will get it when she gets it. If they are sleeping I won’t wake her. I do like to talk when there is a lot to say and it make get misconstrued in writing. I remind myself constantly that I should be grateful my mom is still with us, but I do have a hard time breaking away from all I want to or have to do just to run in to do something for her. Sometimes it’s not even a visit because I can’t make out what she is talking about. Yes I am guilty as charged.
