Seven years ago almost to the day during a Good Friday church service, my cell phone rang. I promptly turned the ringer off – It was the middle of the service. A few moments later, It rang again. I turned the phone’s ringer off again, and this time I sat on it. Yeah, I know. You see, my phone made a loud noise when it was turned completely off, so I didn’t want to do that. Fortunately, the service was just about over. So as soon as it was finished, I pulled my phone out and looked to see who had called. It was my mother. Yeah, not good turning the phone off on your mom! So I called her back only to hear her panicked voice, “Karen, are you okay? Is everyone unhurt?”
Now, I had just been sitting in a calm church service, my mom seems to think we’ve all died, or been maimed or that something horrible had happened to us. It took me a moment to wrap my mind around her panic.
“Yeah, we’re fine, Mom.” And I tried to sound nonchalant, “Why?” Ya know you don’t want to sound accusatory toward your mom.
