Life is short, enjoy your family

Janice Moen, Minot

My husband and I were eating at the new restaurant in Minot the other day and noticed a young man and his young daughter sat down in a booth across from us.

The entire time they sat there and ate, he not once said anything to his daughter, hardly acknowledged her presence at all as he was so wrapped up in his smart phone. He even had to make a little pillow for it with his gloves so he could scroll it with one hand and eat with the other.

So sad to see that his device is more important to him than his daughter who will grow up so fast and be gone from his life so quick and if she learns from his example will be so enamored with her smart phone she won’t even notice him either.

Life is short; enjoy your family while they’re here as there is no guarantee they will be here tomorrow.
