Putting Off A Difficult Call
--by sunltcloud, posted Sep 8, 2018
Why then haven't I called her? What do I say? Do I bring up her illness? How do I comfort her? Those are things that made me procrastinate.
Today, emboldened by a KindSpring challenge, I finally called. And as soon as I connected with her I realized that listening is probably what she needs most.
I should have known. When I went through chemo therapy I was happiest with callers who asked how I was, then let me talk, sometimes more, sometimes less.
