Today I'm Thankful For: Text Messaging

I'll admit it. I'm not a big "texter". I screen my calls and often go hours at a time without being within reaching distance of my phone (gasp). But I've recently come to appreciate the phenomenon of text messaging. In my world where some days the most communication I exchange with my husband is a mumbled & half-dazed farewell before we both go to our jobs, I consider it a luxury to be able to tell him "I love you" at will, without interrupting him in the middle of his work day. On days that started out grumpily, that "I love you" may be precluded with an "I'm sorry". It takes less than 30 seconds to send a simple message, but I've found that a little communication "maintenance" sure goes a long way.
