An old friend called yesterday and said, "I was at a nursery over the weekend, saw the dahlias in bloom and thought of you."
So sweet. (And BTW ... dahlias unfurl the most gorgeous late-summer bloom. [See above.])
Which brings us to the point: when is the last time you picked up the phone to reach out to a friend via live voice ... not FB post, text or Instagram?
One of my best friends and I regularly schedule "Telephone Tea," which is setting time aside specifically to chat and catch up.
Make the call. Brighten someone's day.
