PUT YOUR PHONE DOWN


Hello to Aw...Mondays . My friend Carole recently shared something. She said people spend too much time on their phones and ended with this message, put your damn phone down! Everywhere we go, people  with faces buried looking at  their phones.Look at life, your hubby or wife, your kids, grands and friends.Smile at a stranger. Please put your phone down while driving
This boy is on vacation in Cheese Country, otherwise known as Wisconsin. He told me one day to put my phone down and talk to him.  Goodbye phone, hello Harrison. I miss him already.
Harrison is warming up to the idea that in December, he will be a big brother. No pink ribbons there, another blue bundle of joy. Waiting on the name. They know I love Harley but they will have to find the perfect one. Love is...sums this up nicely.
HaHaHa! Oooooohhhhh Maxine, that new baby arriving in time for the CHRISTmas season. Maxine is 100 percent right, you know that don't you?
I have a quick challenge for you. instead of an unkind word or thought proceeding from your mind and mouth please do this:
Small kindnesses make big strides. People everywhere are fighting a battle you know nothing about. Use kindness.  It makes me feel better to be kind. It is easy to be mean, kindness is hard if you make it that way. I see so many wanting their cause championed or expressing the hate they say among others and yet they are doing the same thing. Try kindness, use love to it's full potential. Love is the greatest gift of all. Prayers going up for Annie who has always shared kindness and positive notes at her blog.

I agree about the phones. it's sad, but with technology's progress, people just don't communicate face to face any more.

I agree about the kindness too. It's so easy to be kind and it only takes a moment. Imagine if everyone tried a bit of kindness once a day. Wowsie! You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

I agree, put the phone down! In Georgia, we have the hands-free law. It seems to be working! Accidents are down and that's a really good thing! We all need to pay more attention to those we love instead of looking at the phone! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

Kindness matters...every day. Smart little boy...wise woman...it bothers me when I see couples and each are on their separate phone. Makes me wonder if they're texting each other.
