How long has it been since you reached out to a close friend to tell them you care about them? Recently, a dear friend of mine lost her husband of 32 years. What a shock to lose your best friend and companion after such a long relationship. My friend has been in my thoughts and prayers on a daily basis since this tragic loss. I find that there is a fine line between being in touch too much and letting my friend know that I’m here for her. I asked her how I could support her yesterday and her answer was simple. She said to tell her, “You go Girl,” and I did.
It doesn’t have to be a devastating loss that reminds us to reach out to friend. It can be as simple as “I”ve been thinking of you,” or “You’ve been on my heart alot lately.” The important thing is to just do it. Your words of kindness can change someone’s day profoundly. Reach out to a friend today.
What about you? Who do you need to reach out to? When will you do it?
