It's been a strange day for me. Started out pretty good, got to the clinic and got down to work. I was in a good mood, not a great one, but before long and a lot of phone calls and clients later, the mood had deteriorated. Funny how that can happen. Patience grasshopper...not my strong suit. Anyway, I've rejuvenated somewhat and am feeling better now, more on a level plain once again. Whew...
So, isn't it funny how friends/people can drop in and drop out of our lives? In the last week, two very dear friends of mine have suddenly reappeared. One had moved out of the area completely, and when my cell phone died about a year ago, I lost her number and life got in the way, and well - you know how it goes...we lost touch. She's been gone for 5 years and then last week, she drives in the driveway and it was like she's never been gone. It felt great to talk with her again. Sounds like she might be moving back to our little area again. That would be nice.
And then another friend who I haven't even talked to in over a year, maybe more, called me out of the blue today - just to "say hi". It was soooo good to talk with her. We talked for over an hour and caught up and laughed, just like we'd never been apart. I'm always amazed at how God drops people into our lives just when we need them. Funny...I guess He really does watch over us at all times.
Life is funny. It's so easy to get busy with things and let our relationships with the people we love and care very deeply about to wane. It's so very easy to lose touch. And, for some reason we just don't pick up the phone, or drop them a few lines - you know, check in, even just to say "hi". I am guilty of this, as much as the next gal. I've gotten bogged down in the everyday little struggles and busyness of life and let people slip thru the cracks. I've often wondered why. Why is it so easy to let go of people who so obviously enrich our lives? Hmmm, I guess I don't really expect any answer, just wondering is all. I've always heard that the third time's the charm - maybe I'll make a quick phone call to one other very dear friend who I haven't spoke to in almost 3 years. I have absolutely no reason not to. Maybe it's my turn to take some initiative and step out of my business of being so busy...and take a few minutes to do something of real importance.
Like stay in touch with someone I care about.
But get this, I've just now talked to yet another friend who called me out of the blue, and earlier today, another friend called me just to say "hi". Wow, am I ever blessed!! This truly is the day for making and keeping connections. That's four friends in one day who thought enough of me to just call me and tell me they were thinking of me. I feel blessed indeed.
So...who you gonna call?
