So today I stayed home all day. It was a beautiful Saturday and I spent the day outdoors doing yard work. Before I knew it, the day was over and I realized I had no human contact, thus no chance for an ARK! I began to think about how I could reach out and do something for someone so I sat at my computer and scanned the internet for a while. How could I share some kindness? Then it came to me . . . how many people are in my address book that I have lost track of or haven't done a very good job keeping in touch with? I looked through my address book and came across a wonderful friend that I've known for nearly 20 years. Unfortunately, when I moved about five years ago, I did a lousy job of keeping in touch and I felt disconnected from her. That's it! I've thought about her so many times and keep telling myself I will drop her a line, but time goes by and I never make the effort. I sat down this evening and wrote her a long email catching her up with my family and asking questions about hers. Gosh it felt so good to make contact again. I realized how much I missed her! So now, the only thing left to do is wait for her response. I feel good inside! Now I want to go through the rest of my address book and reach out to all the people who have been special in my life who I have let slip through my fingers. I don't want to let them go - I want to pull them closer.
