How many times have you said and thought about Family and friends:
I need to call him or her to make a lunch/ coffee / or whatever date and you never do. Or just call them to talk. Think about it ….. We ALL do it,
Then we come off with. OH I talk to them on Facebook or I read there FB Page or …… So I don’t need to call them to say “HI, how are you doing, I was just think of you” or just a “hey there”, or “Hi There, I see it’s your Birthday! HAPPY Birthday” I could go on and on and on.
I know I do it and I know you do it as well. Yes we are ALL Busy, that’s life or is it? Is your life SO busy you cannot take 5 to 10 mins to stop and make a call? To tell them, hi and show them you care about them?
I know when I call and say HI and I love you to my Great Aunt June, it makes her day for I can hear the smile in her voice get bigger. It also gives me a Warm fuzzy feeling side, knowing I made someone smile today.
So why am I think about all this today? Well that simple. I woke up this morning just like I normal do but this time when I logged into Facebook I found out that a Dear friend of mine passed away last night from a good HARD battle from cancer. Also I read his Memorial service will be this Saturday but I have to work all day and I feel bad about it so I reach out to his partner and told him I sorry about your loss and I cannot make it to his Memorial but when thing settle down let go out for coffee or lunch
So think about it! Yes Facebook and the computer is a great tool to keep in touch with friends and family but the phone and meeting up with them for coffee or lunch are as well. If not more so.
So I challenge each and every one of you reach out and call someone you have been thinking about lately and Say HI! And if you can CALL them on their Birthday and feel there smile over the phone grow!
