I know. No one calls anyone anymore, right? We’ve got email, text, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat…who needs to dial those digits? I mean, does anyone ever use their cell phone minutes these days? The answer I suspect, is hardly anyone. Or at the least, a whole lot less of us than even just a few years ago.
To go the extra mile in kindness, pick up the phone, dial that number and actually talk to the person on the other line. Call them.
Why? To let them hear your voice. To hear theirs. To sing them “Happy Birthday.” To get your point across without the ambiguity of text (or text plus emoji.) To tell them you love them…
Because tomorrow you might not be able to. Because the sound of someone’s voice can be comforting to both parties. The surprise of a phone call today when hardly anyone does it anymore will put a smile on someone’s face. Because Grandma will appreciate it. So will Mom…and Dad.

Stay tuned during the month of April to see other ways in which you can incorporate kindness into your daily life and encourage others to do the same…I’ll return to my senses on May 1.
