You can't be everything to everyone. It is what it is,
it is what you make it. Not everything happens
when you expect it; it is what it is...
Not so long ago we communicated by calling
and having a “real” conversation. Hearing a person
on the other end of the phone. Especially when
you can’t see that person so very often.
Arvid is one that gets really annoyed when someone
tries to text him, especially after he has told them
that all he has is a flip phone. Needless to say, he
ignores the text, and deletes the message. He says,
"if they can't call me then it's not that important."
Arvid has many qualities, most I admire. One of
his so many admirable qualities is that he has been
calling his mother Molly in Norway for over 40 years
every Sunday at more or less the same time.
She could set her clock with his calls.
Arvid's mom died in January of this year.
What a difference one call less makes 😥 Also he
has his 2 daughters in Norway who he has been calling
every Sunday without fail for last 30 or so years. Michelle
is married with kids so we have had to adjust to when
is a good time for them. But even so the calls are
always there. You hear each other’s voice 💚
Today everyone texts 🙊. Me included. At least I
text using actual words. Then there are those who just
use these so called emoji’s, Bitmoji’s or some random
thing they copied from elsewhere. Impersonal is
what we have then become in these situations.
The truth is that I don't always read all these things
that are copied and sent to me. Too much. If you're going
to text I'd rather have a few words. make it more personal.
That's just my way of thinking. I text with my mom and
sisters, but we also talk. I need to hear their voices.
Random pictures of some very good times in
today's blog. Happy Tuesday to all. The week is
still fresh and we can still make those changes
we keep talking about, at least try our best.
My least favorite expression: it is what it is 🤮 Life happens.
Unpredictability means what it means.
I don't know how you define it. It is what it is...
