I am a mother.
I am a wife.
I am a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a granddaughter, a niece, a cousin.
As I watch you eyes go down and your car swerving side to side, I ask myself... do you know I am a mother that is in the car behind you?
Do you know that that text, email, post, phone call could take me away from my son? Take a wife away from her husband?
As I watch you as you fix your hair and/or makeup while driving do you realize you have a person who loves life driving behind you?
No. No you don’t know me.
No. No you don’t know any of the people in any of the cars around you. You don’t even think that they are Mother’s, father’s, wives, husbands. They have families that they want to go home to.
However the most heartbreaking is that you don’t know my four year old son in the car WITH me!!! He lives to play pretend and dress-up. He loves batman. He loves his family and has a heart so full of love, empathy and compassion that it’s the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.
No. No you don’t know him.
You only know the text you are reading or sending. You are taking your attention off the road. You are choosing your phone over my son.
Please put down the phone. Let your purse fall. Let your hair be the way it is. WAIT!!! Go home to your family and let me go home to mine!
Thank you! (From a mother who is madly in love with her son, Husband, family, friends and life!) #stoptextinganddriving #driving #texting #ifeelstronglyaboutthis #mother #son #wife #husband #mysonismyworld #mylifematters #imatter #allforagoodcause #payattention #stop #phone #textinganddriving
