Five people wait anxiously for an elevator. The first person’s cell phone starts to ring. She flips the top down and drops it back in her purse, and enters the elevator with the others saying…………
“It’s just my Mom, calling to wish me a happy birthday. I don’t have time for her big long conversation; I’ll call her back tonight.”
“My Mom is a pain too, calls me all the time.”
“I wish my Mom would call me on my cell to wish me a happy birthday.”
“I wish I still had my cell phone.”
“I wish I still had my Mom.”
Upon exiting the elevator the first woman quickly finds her phone and punches in the numbers.
“Hi Mom!, sorry I couldn’t get to my phone in time….Thank you,… I love you too.” “I was just on my way over to pick you up for lunch."
Just a small reminder of the fragility of life.
