Technology vs Old-fashioned

“Make new friends but keep the old ones; one is silver and the other’s gold”

A young friend of mine text me early one morning to say “good morning”. I text him back “good morning”. He did not text me back. Later I saw him and asked what had happened and he replied that I sounded cold. What is the point? Although I did not put a smiley face or lol (laugh out loud) he could not see the smile on my face as I was thinking, how nice to get his greeting.

Only by calling me on my cell or the old-fashioned landline would he have heard the smile in my voice and the pleasantness of my voice.

I am all for texting. I embrace changes. Yet, nothing can compare to the human touch. Pick up the phone and call a friend or family member and let them hear your voice.
