Phone Conversation Overheard

Life in 2009


"I wonder if I have a text message. Where's my cell phone?! I just had it. Now what did I do with it?"

(pause)

"Oh, I forgot. I'm talking on it."

I wish I'd overheard this conversation. But I'm glad to you did.

When a technology becomes so familiar that we forgot we're using it, I worry a bit.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
