Call. Text. Click.
She was on my mind. I wanted to call. I just didn’t get round to it. I wasn’t so busy I couldn’t take a minute or two to call. I just kept putting it off. When I heard that she had passed on, I didn’t know what to think. Would my calling have changed anything? Maybe not. Would we have enjoyed a really profound discussion? Again, perhaps not. Would it have felt great, knowing that I responded to that nudge to reach out shortly before her demise? I think yes.
It’s more digestible knowing ‘ooh but I just spoke to her’ than ‘ooh no, I wanted to speak with her’. Don’t you think? Here’s my takeaway from all of this. It’s not anything you haven’t heard before. Make that visit. Place that call. Send that text. Initiate that chat. Send that voice note. Just go with the flow. You just never know.
Perhaps, hearing from you will make the other person’s day. Maybe that dose of love is the reminder they needed to make an important decision. Perhaps it’s not even that big a deal, it was just lovely to hear from you. And maybe, just maybe, it would be the last thing you ever said to them.
