We have "pulled the plug" on our cable;
we are surviving, in fact thriving!
We have noticed for some time that the television was becoming a true addiction for our children, maybe even for us. We were continuing to allow it. Enough was enough. It is the boldest move yet, in our quest for a much more simplified, healthy life. It was very intimidating to actually follow through with it. I was comfortable with cable, and not so comfortable with change on any level. So, this has been good for even me. We have much more time on our hands, much less noise, while increasing our bottom line. We fill our time talking, playing, reading, gaming, dancing (yes, I know Baptists don't dance, but I am rebellious!). It's bringing joy. There is satisfaction in it.
In our future, I see more outings, more thinking, more bonding,
more experience, more culture, more family.
There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind. - C.S. Lewis
