Now Is The Time to Make a Call – No Need to Wait!

Have you ever thought about what a friend from college or high school is doing now? Or you never knew what happened to someone you played sports with or was in your music lessons? Or a relative that you were very friendly with, shared the same interests and for some reason you stopped talking. Perhaps you grew apart and frankly you didn’t know why. I am sure you have said I should call Mike, Ted, Fred or Alice and see what is going on. But for some reason it is a fleeting moment in time and you go back to doing whatever you were doing and don’t pick up the phone.

This has happened to me. I know I am a “yes” to all of those questions. Probably all of us have people who touched our lives in some shape or form and have grown apart over the years. It was never premeditated but it just happened.

I try and keep in touch with a lot of people but often I think about what happened to someone I haven’t spoken to in awhile.

Recently I heard from the sister of a friend of mine. She unfortunately delivered some very bad news. My friend was in the hospital – actually in ICU and was very sick. They didn’t know what was wrong with her. They were doing a battery of tests and couldn’t figure it out. A day or two went by and thankfully she is doing much better. In fact I spoke to her a few times and I can’t even believe she was sick. She sounded great and very positive as she always is.

The reason I wanted to share this story is everyone has people that we don’t talk to as often as we would like. All of us are busy, but surely we can find some time to reach out to someone and see how they are doing. Spend a few minutes and make a call to one of them.

I know I will.
