We fought getting a cell phone for the longest time. They, and people who used them, seemed so obnoxious.
Then September 11, 2001 happened. So many people were able to hear their loved ones’ voices just one more time. Shortly thereafter, Himself’s manager’s father was on a hunting trip – alone. He fell in a ditch and, had he not had his cell phone, might have perished there with a broken leg. Only his son knew the area he was in.
Our first plan was for one hour a month for twenty dollars a month. Piece of cake. Himself took it when he went out and I took it when I went out and it was just for emergencies. That worked out well for quite some time.
Truth be told, I don’t remember the progression of aquiring several more phones – one for each family member – except that the number of phone booths has dwindled and the need to be in touch with a teenager and the safety of an adult child on the road all seemed to become of vital importance!
Our wireless plan is more complicated than a Rubik’s cube. We have extra text minutes for a fee and the "In" plan is a blessing. My entire side of the family sticks with one phone company so we can be in touch without having to pay exhoribitant long distance fees! That helps when your family is bicoastal.
Well, I guess the cell phone is a blessing for the most part. Still, I wish some people didn’t attach them to their ears. It is a terrible disfigurement and an entire different entry about manners in public places.
Hope your Lord’s day is fulfilling and that you are able to "Walk with the King today and be a blessing." g
