“True friends walk

in when the rest of the world has walked out.”
~ Walter Winchell

There’s no great governing body that has declared today Phone A Friend Day. No. Sorry. It’s just me.

But still, I think it’s a good idea, and I hope you pay attention and adopt this worthy challenge. In a world where we are becoming increasingly stressed and socially isolated, love and friendship can maintain our emotional wellbeing and mental health, and a quick phone call helps to keep our support networks strong.

Today, don’t send an email or a text. Take five minutes and phone a friend, neighbour or family member.

Call someone just to say hi and see how they’re doing.

Call someone because you know they’ve had a rough time. Especially if that rough time happened a while ago. People forget too soon that others are still struggling.

Call someone because you know they’re doing well.

Call someone because you have news.

Call someone because you know they have news.

Call someone just because you care.

You never know what your call might mean to that other person. Or what it might do for you.

Nothing can replace that shared connection, and the sound of a friendly voice at the other end of the line.

Go on. Make the call, and make a difference. We could all do with a little more real connection.

  2. Took your advice right away. Had been thinking of an old neighbor for a few days that doesn’t get out much and I had been thinking of mailing a card. Instead I made a call. She was so happy to hear from me and to have a conversation. I had a lot of conversations today. Thanks for the inspiration.
