My Mom and Dad are wonderful, smart people.
But, they have not kept up with the world of technology.
Case in point;
This is the conversation I had with my Mom last week:
Mom: Guess what?! You Dad is going to get us a cell phone!
Me: Make sure he gets you an I-phone. They are so much easier to use!
Mom: Oh, I think they are too expensive. Besides, I don’t know if we need anything as fancy as that.
Me: It isn’t that it’s fancy. It’s just much easier to use. And, we could share pictures.
Mom: Well, I’ll see what I can do. It would be fun to send a picture.
Our conversation a little later that afternoon. . .
Mom: Hey! I am calling on my new cell phone!
Me: Great! Did you get the I-phone?
Mom: (Trying to cover the mouthpiece, she asks my dad, “Bobby, is this the I-phone?) Yes! We got an I-phone.
She might be the only person on the planet who has an I-phone,
and doesn’t even know that she has one
Although they did not teach me much about technology.
They taught me everything I know about home.
Home is the place where the weary can find rest.
Home is the place where you can kick up your feet
and be yourself.
Home is the place to refill you tanks,
when the world is draining you dry.
Home is the place where you go to be loved,
even when you feel feel unlovable.
I’ll take those lessons any day!
And, I hope I’m teaching my girls the same. . .
Life to the full!
