Every once in a while there is a moment that comes along where I realize that something has been missing. It could be the taste of the fabulous chocolate chip oatmeal cookies that our office manager bakes, or the scent of fresh fallen rain. Anything that subtly makes a world of difference. I experienced that today as I read some responses to my blog from someone that I had not heard from on the blog for a while. It is nice to have her back.
It brought to mind, however, how easy it is to lose track in our busy lives. I know that I certainly have not had as much time of late to do the blogging. And getting together for coffee? Well, let's just say that if it isn't crammed in as a chaser for my breakfast, I have not of late even had time to taste the coffee. This is tragic because I LOVE my coffee.
How often do we lose track of those we love because of our busy lives? If there is anyone in your life that you care about and whom you have not connected with lately, take some time right now to call that person up and say "hi". The time it takes to connect is not that much. The sorrow of completely losing a connection is never ending.
