Put Your Phone Away

Put Your Phone Away

Monday, June 05, 2017 Adrian Wood Comments (1)

Put your phone away, I tell myself, too many times a day.
Put your phone away, I tell myself, you're missing the moment.
Put your phone away, I tell myself, talk to the mom beside you on the bleachers.
Put your phone away, I tell myself, remembering the laughter is more important than capturing the moment in a snapshot.
Put your phone away, I tell myself, Facebook and Instagram will wait for you.
Put your phone away, I tell myself, they're watching and learning from your actions.
Put your phone away, I tell myself, these children won't be eager to hold your hand forever.
Put your phone away, I tell myself, rainy afternoons are for making cookies.
Put your phone away, I tell myself, you don't live in your own little world.
Put your phone away, I tell myself, bedtimes stories can't wait.
Put your phone away, I tell myself, they're thinking big thoughts and you don't want to miss them.
Put your phone away, I tell myself, some day you'll wish it was ringing.

So true, so true. From a grandfather who sees this in one of his children's actions toward his grandchildren.
