Liam is more likely to share what he is thinking and feeling through texting.
Because he uses perfect grammar and spelling,
And does not even write “K” or “ok,” but spells out “okay” and capitalizes his “I,”
I especially love reading his texts.
I can tell when he’s ready to be picked up when he tells me “Done soon” or “Where are you?”
I know he is a bit bored when he texts “Hi, what are you doing?”
I feel his love when he texts me heart emojis and wishes me “sweet dreams” before he turns his phone off for the night.
I know he’s a bit lonely when he writes, “When will you be home?”
I look forward to hearing from him right after school, when he gets off the bus, or from a practice or rehearsal at night.
It’s an easier and direct way for him to share his thoughts and feelings.
I am thankful for texting and how it has kept us connected during his first year of high school.
