Texting is good for short little communications. One of my favorite uses is when Ursula asks me to get some groceries on the way home from work. Inevitably I used to always forget one key item. With a text I’ve got the whole list on my phone.
Last night was pretty awesome getting to see Briana score a goal in her high school soccer game. At first, I wasn’t going to be at the game because of what time it was at, but surprised Briana by making it. After the game, I told her how proud I was of her for taking the shot and making the goal. She received the praise and didn’t say much.
This morning I texted her to tell her that she’d have soccer practice on Sunday. Also, told her that I wouldn’t be able to make her game today since it was an early game and I’d still be at work. What came out of that simple communication was the following…
Me: Have a great day! Cannot make your game today. You made me proud with that goal. It was very sweet!
Briana: Aw thanks daddy you have a great day too you surprised me when you yelled my name it really made me happy
Me: Glad that I could put a smile on your face. You always put one on my face!
Communicating in a format that she’s comfortable with allowed her to open up a bit more and tell me how she really felt. That text truly touched my heart!
