The holidays are a special time of the year. The music and holiday movies remind us of the importance of our friends and family.
As our lives get busier, we can easily lose the connection with others. Although often it’s not intentional, before we know it, years have passed since we last spent time together.
Yesterday we were able to arrange a visit with a friend whom we hadn’t seen in a few years. We had worked together on a project that concluded over a decade ago and had just lost touch. We spent a delightful afternoon reminiscing and reconnecting. We had to catch each other up with the details of our lives and loved ones, but the feeling was the same. It was just as no time had passed between us.
Recently, I thought about our friends as I gathered together addresses to mail our Christmas cards. Fond memories rolled across the stage of my mind and I have committed to reach out this coming year.
I do recognize that there are some people who come and go in our lives and our time together is a short season. Those are not the ones that I am referring to. Instead, I am talking about those people who we often think about but don’t seem to get around to sending that email or text. Even a short message on social media will let them know you are thinking about them.
Take time in this busy season to reach out to someone who you haven’t seen or talked to for some time. May your holiday season be filled with joy.
