Summer always has been bitter sweet for me. It’s my personal favorite time of the year when the bright hues take over the dull gray and browns of winter, but it is also the time of saying Good-bye. We say good-bye to the friends we’ve made at school, good-bye to the children that go off to summer camps, other family members homes or their own adventures. We say good-bye to family that we hadn’t seen in years during family reunions and good-bye to newly weds after they get married in the warmth of summer. Thankfully there is one thing that keeps us all together regardless of the miles and space between us, our connection. We had gotten Walmart’s Lowest Priced Unlimited Plans for our family and brings us closer every day.
Communication has never been more important to my family than during the summer months. There are so many things going on that without the ability to have Unlimited Talk/Text/Web it would all fall apart.
My teen goes to visit his father in Colorado in a few days and will be gone until school starts again. These months used to suffocate me until he had gotten a Smartphone and I could text him every day. He would send me photos and I would know he was alright out there in the world away from me; even though he’s almost 17 I can’t go a day without knowing he’s okay.
Then there is my youngest whose years of Early Childhood Special Education ended this month and all of his friends will be going to separate Kindergartens. He’s never had friends like he has had this year. Last Fall/Winter brought with it the first playdates and ‘besties’ he’s ever had and losing that connection with the children would have been unfathomable and awfully lonely.
And of course for me there is my family who I only get to see maybe once or twice a year. Those I love are aging and growing older and though I don’t get to be so much a part of their lives where they are, I would feel as though I lost them all without our ability to connect.
So you see, although summer brings with it the difficulty of saying Good-bye to those we care about. Walmart #FamilyMobile has given so many the ability to not have to let go.
So while you are on vacation, enjoying your family reunions, saying good-bye to classmates for the year or for the long run; whether you are having to let go when your kids go to college, visit other families or take off for summer camps you can still keep them close. Walmart Family Mobile has been a wonderful gift to my family. I can say the bittersweet good-bye to my son and know that it won’t be so long between the next “Hi, Mom.” And I know you get that every time you answer your phone and reconnect with someone you have to miss.
You can check out Walmart Family Mobile’s family plans by visiting Walmart.com. Their Unlimited Talk/Text/Data & Web is unbeatable. I wish all of you to keep the best of your connections this summer and this is how my family keeps ours.
