"It was very good to hear from you and I look forward to keeping current with you. Should you ever find yourself in the need of a trusted friend or advisor, of someone to bounce ideas off of, or someone to just listen...I am your guy! We all miss you and can't wait till the next time we can spend some time with you and yours."This totally made my day!
Recently I noticed my mom wrote something on Facebook that was really sweet to an old friend of hers who had sent her a "you are never alone heart" icon:
"This makes me feel so special to receive this from Phyllis Kelley.It's moments like these that make me pause and consider my digital output into the world. Do I write meaningful comments and emails? Do I rush responses in an attempt to get through as much digital communication as possible in one day?
With Facebook, LinkedIn, personal email, work email and blogs I go through a tremendous amount of content per day and regardless of it being work or personal, I'd really like to slow down a bit and participate in meaningful exchanges.
