So was the phone.
That's the weird one. My mom called in the morning. My aunt called to make babysitting arrangements and my grandfather called because I told him to on Sunday!
That was all.
Then I was on FaceBook. Facebook is now the new communications system. (Now listen carefully to this next part - I am GRATEFUL for all the WONDERFUL birthday wishes that were sent my way - this is just a realization that I came across and not a complaint!!!!)
I received over 100 birthday wishes on Facebook. It was great - kept getting lots and lots of notifications and thought it was so sweet. I send birthday messages all the time too! Friends and family. It's easy!
But, my phone only rang 3 times. all day. That's never happened before. Not that my phone rings off the hook, but, I think now what everyone does is send a message and be done for the day. I have made a decision regarding this. If I have a phone number for the person that's being celebrated for the day - I'm making a phone call. I am the type of person that loves to know that someone is thinking of them. So, I am going to make every effort from now on to make my thoughts vocal to loved ones that I am thinking of them beyond the computer and texting. It's like getting a hand written letter (remember those??) I still insist on handwriting my Christmas cards even though there's more than I can count to take care of. That's called planning! So, to make the one call, even if I get an answering machine (or voice mail), I know that I made my voice heard and that I care.
Again, NOT complaining here. Just an observation and a new direction for me! I love getting my facebook messages.
And I started today with a phone call to a friend......
