…..TO YOU AND HER OR HIM!
During this time of the year I always get a little weepy, and the goodwill towards the world in my heart suddenly awakens from its hibernation it went into after last Christmas.
Getting out my address book all the ghost of the pass stand up – Oh, look there is Maureen – wonder what happened to her – going further there are lots of Maureens I have not been in contact with for a while. Actually rather a long while, which makes me impatient and writing a card and maybe not getting one back won’t do. So I make a phone list – I know phones work in two ways and it is tempting to think – well she could have called me too – but she didn’t!
I had a friend who said ‘if you don’t call your friends after a while you won’t have any.’ I first doubted that, but through the years it proved to be true. The reward of making the first step is hearing the delight in the voice on the other end of the line, “Is it really you Brigitte? who would have thought? How have you been? I often thought of you and wondered how you are.” It is hard to get a word in at first but eventually you get the chance to say how often you thought of them too!
By making the first step you will not only find your friends back, but also wonderful memories of the times you shared together.
Always remember – A Smile Changes Everything
