Day 147 – Phone a Friend

Art Apple - Day One Hundred Forty Seven

I’d like to phone a friend.

If I could have a hotline to a friend who would always pick up the phone – wouldn’t that be cool! Now – to be fair – my husband, my family, and some truly great friends will pick up the phone. But for people dealing with chronic illness, this type of thing is a life saver at times.

My mom will never forget one particular phone call I made to her about 7 years ago. She recalls it when describing the throws of despair and pain I was in. I can remember it too – I wish I couldn’t.

We forget to check in with our friends. Today – call someone you haven’t heard from in awhile, check in and make sure they are o.k.

Until tomorrow.
