I'm thinking about you in these times

It can be a little scary listening to the news, and seeing the empty shelves in the stores. My heart goes out to all who may be struggling with these fragile and unpredictable times. I have many friends who are well into their 90's, and how I wish I could visit them, but then of course I can't. How sad that it's during these times of fear, when we need each other most, that we can't be there to comfort each other. "Social Isolation" is what we need to be practicing.


So I pick up the phone and make a few calls, and reach out to those who I know are wanting some companionship. My dear father. My 96 year old neighbor, Dick. My friend Lyn at the Village, where my father used to live. I can hear the fear in their voices. Bless their hearts, and the little bit of joy hearing from someone from the outside, who just wants to connect and see how they're doing.


Maybe this is the time to reach out to people I haven't spoken to in awhile. I think I'll do more of that. It's during these times, that it's so easy to feel lonely. As Jame Taylor sang in "You've Got a Friend", I'll think of you, and I'll do what I can to brighten your day, even if it's just a phone call. We all need a friend.
