On Text Messages


My daughter discovered how to use her iPad (or was it her iPod…?) to iMessage me a note on my way home from Greenville – it was the most touching text message I have received in a very, very long time.

It was also our very first real text message conversation that I’ve ever had with my 7-year old. I’m pondering the significance of this and how it may or may not be the beginning of the end (or some strange harbinger of SMS doom).

Regardless, I will cherish this moment forever and I am quite thankful for it – this has been a really long week and I need some serious family-time.

I hope you’re getting all the time you need in with your loved ones! A text message is great but is seriously no replacement for the real thing.
