Why is it that we are so “busy” that we can’t even take time to call those that we love?
This is a topic that has really been on my heart lately.
You see, I call friends and family every single day. It is a priority to stay connected, even though my plate is very full.
Oftentimes I’ll take the 10 minutes I have in the car as I go to and from day care to call a friend just see how she’s doing.
Sometimes it’s a friend that I have talked to only a few days prior, other times its a friend that I haven’t talked to in a couple weeks. Regardless, every time it is so good to connect.
But you see, the thing is… almost every time I’m always the one to pick up the phone.
Now, please hear me. I’m not writing this post for a pity party for my friends to give me a call. 🙂
Rather, I am writing this as a call to action.
As women we need one another. We need to invest in one another. We need to love one another by intentionally reaching out.
We need to pick up the phone – even if it is just five minutes in the car to say hey I’m here, how are you doing?
About two months ago, I called a friend whom I hadn’t talked to in a while. After 10 minutes of talking about our kids, she took a deep breath and told me that she didn’t think she was in love her husband anymore. I was the only person she had told, besides him.
Had I not called her, she would still be holding those feelings in, with no one to come along side of her and say, I am praying for you. We will walk this road together.
Your friends need you. And you need them.
Today I want to encourage you to pick up the phone and call someone. Let them know that you’re there, that you think about them and that they matter.
