Email, Facebook and other social media are great but nothing really replaces a good conversation. I got up Saturday morning and as usual, checked my email and Facebook over a cup of coffee. I saw a post from my oldest friend. No, she is not old! Our friendship is old. We have been friends since first grade. Just as I was about to hit that good old “like” button I thought . . . pick up the phone. An hour or so later, after catching up on parents, kids and a plethora of other things including but not limited to solving the problems of the world, I felt refreshed. The sun was shinning a little brighter, the chores of the day were a little lighter. Actual conversation is so good for the soul. Try it next time you want to email a friend. I guarantee it will feel good and it’s cheaper than therapy.
