MESSAGES DELETED...KINDA SAD REALLY....

So I had to delete all of the stored messages in my voice mail from when my cell phone broke back in November. There were over 40. FORTY! It took me almost 30 minutes. I know this because my cell phone told me how long I was on the phone after I exhaustedly hung up. And I know, one doesn't actually "hang up" a cell phone. In truth, I "pushed off" my cell phone....but you get my drift.

The funny thing is that I only caught parts and phrases of some of the messages. I had to just delete them all outright. I mean, it's February 20th and an entirely new year...nothing in there could be pertinent to today, right? And I had to make room for incoming messages. So...as I was deleting the messages, I would get a snippet or two from various people, most of whom I love more than life itself, and a couple who are either relative strangers or outright strangers, one who wasn't even a human...and I boiled it down into a paragraph for my remembery pleasure....

*BEEP*

I know...it makes the cutest montage....I should have recorded it but I was in the parking lot of the church at 6:00 am waiting on little Eli and no one could leave a message until I did it....but yea, it's cute how a theme develops....
