But get a cellular phone...

...and then you won't have to worry!
-Collin Raye, "That's My Story"

Thirty Days of Thanksgiving - Day #14: Today I'm thankful for my cell phone.

It keeps me connected with friends who are far away. It allows me to check email anytime I feel so inclined. It can be a guitar which provides endless entertainment to little fingers who get lucky enough to hold it. It let me call a friend during Sunday School (which felt like a big ol' No-No this morning, but was for a legit reason - really). It takes pictures when I don't have a camera nearby. It gets me to friends' houses when I can't remember the address. It helped me find a costume shop yesterday. It keeps phone numbers handy. It's red, it's cute, and it's become a significant part of my daily routine. That's an understatement. Really, I'd be lost without it.

Okay, I gotta admit, thankfulness for my cell phone seems a little weak. To be honest, I'm not feeling all that thankful today. I still haven't written my "big ones" posts about those closest to me - and I promise that you'll get appreciation for the hubs, the kids, the folks. But I'm not feeling like writing those right now, so today it's just a little shout-out to a piece of technology that makes my life easier.

Mindy, I got an LG Ally which uses an android operating system. Love that thing! The keyboard is awesome, way better than the Motorola Droid.
