Relationships: Like sewing on a button (Tina Sidoti)

This morning my wife, Tina, surprised me with a wonderful metaphor.  She needed to sew on a button.  After getting the needle and thread from her sewing basket she said, “Isn’t it funny how with all of the technology available, when I need to sew on a button I still reach for a needle and thread?”We reflected together about how personal relationships, at certain times, require the same kind of attention from us that sewing on a button does, in that you need to be “present in the moment.”

There is technology that can sew on a button.  But when it comes to the most important aspect of life, our relationships, technology will never replace personal, focused attention, and active engagement.
