Back In The Day

Back in the day, your face would light up at the mail box as you opened a letter from a far away friend. Now, our kids are learning to type before they learn to write.

Back in the day, when you missed a friend, you called her on the phone and got to hear her voice. Now, social networks have eliminated the human connection.

Back in the day, when you composed an email message, you wrote, “Ha! Ha! Ha!” and the person receiving your message could almost hear your laughter! Now, we have message text like ‘lol’ which take all the fun out of a laugh.

But…back in the day… we heard fantasies of video calls, and now they are commonplace.

We heard computers would keep getting smaller, and now anyone with a smart phone can attest to that.

You win some and lose some, I guess. We just have to be mindful of the value of the things we lose.
