This June will mark the third anniversary since my mom passed and it’s still hard to bear sometimes. However, because of my loss I have a renewed respect for the mother-daughter relationship. This relationship tends to be unique, not always perfect, but worth it in the long run to nurture and cultivate. That’s where Walmart Family Mobile and their cheap wireless plans come in…
Many parents long for the days when they can sleep in, forget about carpooling and/or hauling the kids around. But, as each year passes, the children begin to grow up and they need mom less and less…let’s just say mom isn’t quite sure that’s what she wants. Yes, Goo and Kay makes me feel that way when they profess that they can do it on their own. My girls are growing up and Goo will be heading to Kindergarten in the fall.
After catching up with one of my besties, I hung up the phone with tears tickling my cheeks. I listened to her as sheÂ cried and sniffled. Her oldest daughter is starting college in another state and without any family near. Although my girlfriend is happy for her daughter, we are happy, she is also afraid. To make matters worse, initially her daughter was set to leave in August, but she was accepted into a summer program on campus and is leaving at the end of May instead.
During our call my bestie expressed to me that she just couldn’t afford to get her daughter a mobile phone with unlimited talk text and data/web. She is already sacrificing so much to handle college expenses. More so, she is worried that her daughter won’t be able to call her in case of emergencies. But, then a light bulb went off in my head…let me check out the service area for Walmart Family Mobile. Mmmm, problem solved.
Walmart Family Mobile is available for more than 280 million people nationwide on the T-Mobile calling network and that includes my niece’s new home away from home as well. So, I headed to my local Walmart store to check out the Alcatel One Touch Evolve. It was just the right amount of tech for her. She can get access to all her social media networks that she loves and maybe do some light research for class using the web.
My local store had many options available with the lowest priced unlimited plans I’ve seen so far. This is a great help and thanks to #CollectiveBias and Walmart the first three months are taken care of. Afterwards, for only 39.88/month she will have a mobile phone at her fingertips to call her mom anytime or if she just needs to talk…something tells me that this will be the best Mother’s Day gift that my bestie will indirectly receive.
My relationship with my mom wasn’t the greatest, and it’s too late to change that. As a result, I’m an advocate for strong mother-daughter relationships and Walmart Family Mobile allows me to help my friend sleep better knowing that her baby is only a phone call away. Although my mom and I weren’t close, I know that she slept better knowing that I was safe. There were even nights she would call me in the midnight hour to make sure I was okay because she didn’t feel right. Most times she was right, something wasn’t right…
If I can help one mother and daughter build a stronger relationship and stay in touch then my work here is done. If you’re looking to surprise your mom with an Alcatel One Touch Evolve from Walmart #FamilyMobile head to your local Walmart store and check out their cheap wireless plans.
Moms, how do you keep in touch with your children? Do you fear them growing up and needing you less?
