Funny Motivational Speaker Amy Dee’s blog;
While having dinner with Steve, a mother and daughter sat down at the table beside us. Being a mother of two daughters myself, I couldn’t help watching them.
As soon as they sat down, they pulled out their cell phones. Aside from ordering, their attention remained on their phones throughout their meal. They didn’t talk to each other; they ate, scrolled, and tapped.
The mother excused herself, and I considered following her to the bathroom to give her advice.
I didn’t, but I would have told her this:
As a single mom, I often felt overwhelmed. Sometimes I wished my baby girls would grow up, so I’d finally have adult time. Then, poof, they grew up. Now, separated by miles, jobs, and busyness, dinners together are extraordinary occasions.
Here’s the irony:
When we could talk in person, I often wanted my phone.
Now that we must talk by phone, I want to talk in person.
The mother and daughter left without my advice, so instead, I will share it with you.
Put your phone away; don’t allow it to steal your life moments.
“Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone, they paved paradise and put up a parking lot. ” Joni Mitchell.
