Lightening speed communication!

I love that I can send a copy of my skit that I wrote to my mom, my mother-in-law and the Counselor in the RS presidency to review in 10 seconds! I love that I can call my Mom on the other side of the country and get her in seconds. I love that I could IM with my husband when he was all the way over in Iraq! Lightening speed communication is wonderful. Of course it has made us all totally impatient. I loved that youtube video that went around with this guy on one of the late night shows saying how everything was awesome but no one was happy. He said, he saw teenagers pushing and pushing buttons and complaining about how it wouldn't go fast enough. He told them, give it a minute. It's going to space and back!! Well, can't it go to space just a little faster! Remember rotatory phones, heck remember when you actually had to push buttons and remember phone numbers? I think it may be decreasing our mental capacity too. I have a hard time remembering my husband's phone number and I have to admit, I have no idea what my daughter's is- I just push the button next to the picture of her sweet face! There used to be a time we didn't need to be in constant communication, but now we can't live without it! Emma has to have a phone. Her schedule is so teenage unpredictable. Rob has to have a phone. His college life is so unpredictable. I have to have a phone. My mother life is so unpredictable! Pretty soon Sam's going to need one too. He is starting to get unpredictable!

It is the same old situation of two sides to every coin. I guess we have to take the bad with the good and be thankful that we can stay in touch so easily.
