I hadn’t spoken with my long-time friend in several months and decided to call. Her excited, happy voice instantly breached the miles when she answered her cell phone exclaiming, “Oh…Jen, it’s good to hear from you!”
Envisioning her smile and twinkling eyes I replied “Hi Beth, it’s so good to hear your voice. I’ve been thinking about you. I’ve called several times, but your voice mail is full and I couldn’t even leave a message.”
Not able to resist my usual urge to tease her, I continued, “…and I know you don’t check email.”
Beth and I have been friends since elementary school. Although we grew up together, our adult lives took very different paths. Despite the diversity, we talk easily about life’s flavorings – even those that seem to be over-peppered. Beth’s education and accomplishments far surpass mine, yet she never ceases to remind me of my gifts and talents.
Our minutes-long-conversation seasoned-just-right a bland, otherwise ordinary day, and rekindled our not-seeing-each-other-very-often relationship.
