Lent Day 11: Call an old friend


No one pass out. I, me, KB initiated a call today. Call an old friend? I decided to call the one person who has been my friend the longest, my mom. For some of you, calling your mom may be routine. Not for me. In fact, when my mom answered, the first thing out of my mouth was, “Nothing is wrong!” She laughed. We just don’t talk to each other on the phone. She’s not much of a phone talker either. Two seconds into our conversation she said, “I won’t keep you long.” We’re emailers. Typically, a call from either of us to the other means someone is sick or has died. Like best friends, we “get” each other when it comes to talking on the phone.

It was good to talk to her. I’m grateful to still have my mom in my life and grateful to know she loves me as much as she does.

Today’s photo – my mom and I circa 1968 – I think you can see the resemblance
