phone fast...part one

Lately, I have been too busy.  And though I get to stay home often and take care of these three little people, I have recognized that my phone is a nag.  My i-phone is a brilliant piece of machinery...and many times it is useful.  But the daily beeps, buzzing, ringing and alerts to make sure I am informed of every text, email and phone call is becoming a little much.  So...my phone fast begins.  This morning at 6:00 I turned my phone off for the day.  I am lighter already.  All morning I was really present with my children during each moment.  It is priceless.  I really don't want Jada, Kiva or Judson to grow up thinking they are less important or just as important as my phone.  Seriously?!  They are far more important for my attention and affections.  All the info that I would be receiving can wait until the night time when I can do a quick catch up.  Until then, I will treasure and value these fleeting moments with little feet running, dancing, and bouncing...with squeals of delight and inquisitive thoughts stirring...and to all of you that I normally text or call daily...I love you dearly.  You know that.  Just taking a break :)  Not sure how long this fast will last, but I figure I will take it day by day.  Peace to all of you and prayers that you can slow down, be still and enjoy the moment too!
