My favorite things Monday - catching up with friends on the phone

In this instant gratification Facebook and text world that we live in, nothing beats the rejuvenation of the soul like chatting on the phone with a friend that you haven't chatted with in far too long. 

I'm making it a point this year to be better at keeping in touch with friends.  I admit - I am HORRIBLE at keeping in touch.  Lucky for me, my friends are EXACTLY the same so they always understand.  At least that's what they tell me anyways.  The ones who are still talking to me, that is.

I've shared my Facebook and texting love/hate relationship regarding dating here if you're interested in my thoughts on that topic.

One of my long time childhood friends who is on my Facebook, but more in the "Facebook voyeur" category (she reads everybody elses' stuff but does not post much herself).... well I thought her life was ho-hum but little did I know Mr. Wonderful invaded her life and she is a happy little in-love camper.  I was so happy hearing her share her joy!  You just don't get that from Facebook or texting.

So pick up your phone and DIAL IT and tell an old friend that you were thinking about her.  I double dog dare you!  


  1. Totally agree! Great reminder that screen visits are good, but talking and seeing are way better!!!

  2. I couldn't agree more. I love that I can keep in touch with long distance friends and family on Facebook. Many have been brought closer, especially many of my relatives who live in Norway. But there's nothing quite like talking to someone or actually seeing their face.

  3. God did not design us to be alone. We need relationships. REAL relationships. xo

  4. You are right. I too have found old friends and relatives via facebook, but there is nothing like the old fashion way... phone call or better yet... in person....
