Verizon gave me a Samsung Galaxy S4
I have to say, I’m really not going through a very good time emotionally right now. A friend of mine is going through an emotional time and it affected me emotionally and on the morning I was going to finally get to spend some time with her and be there for her I found out some terrible news. I was trying ever so hard to compartmentalize that my husband had told me but I couldn’t. I was in shock at first, then I was numb and then I cried.
My husband was looking at his phone and he saw on Facebook that my cousin’s grandmother was in the hospital. Well my first thought was it has to be his other grandmother. I couldn’t remember if she was alive or not so I was trying to make myself believe that she was and that it wasn’t my grandmother, even though in my gut I knew what was true. I took my Samsung Galaxy S4 in my hand and looked at the Facebook post that my husband saw and then looked at my cousin’s Facebook page and he hadn’t updated anything for a few days. I looked at my aunt’s Facebook page and she hasn’t updated for a few days. I looked at my other cousin’s page and she hadn’t updated. So, I made a phone call to my mom. As soon as she answered the phone I knew it was my Memaw because my mom was a mess. I could just tell in the sound of her voice. The first words out of my mouth were unkind. I was irritated, upset, in shock, but I should have remained calm. I wanted to know why she hadn’t told me. I should have been more worried about her and her feelings.
She told me what was going on and for the next two days my phone never left my hand except to recharge and you all know that I can go a while because I have the Mophie that Verizon gave me too. I was texting left and right. Answering my phone left and right and I was looking up webpages, playing candy crush as a distraction. I can work from my phone I was looking at photos and downloading photos from skype. I mean I was trying as much as I could to think of anything other than my grandmother and family. Then I finally decided with my husband that I needed to go to Texas. He bought my ticket, he got my car. I’m here. I checked in on my phone I mean I’m really relying on my Samsung Galaxy S4 to keep me connected. To keep my photos from my kids coming in, to keep my facetime with them from anywhere I am. It’s amazing what you can do on a G4 phone and all the apps at our fingertips. I couldn’t function right now without it. I need to be connected. I need to be able to receive pictures and letters from my children like this one.
Yes I’m writing this post on my laptop because of how fast I type, but I would be lost right now without my phone.
That’s my current connection with the Samsung Galaxy S4
