Tonight, I Get To Turn Off My Phone

With one boy, far off and away at college, and another one who stays out late, I always keep my phone by my bed — on. I never know what I might be called upon on those late night hours of sleep.  There are those rare occasions when I a truly needed for something that can’t wait till morning — maybe once or twice — “Mom, I can’t stop coughing, and I can’t get to sleep,” and another time, “Mom, the doors are locked — can you let me in.”

Still, as infrequently as it happens, I like to keep my phone by my bed — on.

But tonight, and for the next three, I have the blissful opportunity to sleep with  my phone off.  All of us are sleeping under the same roof
