I'm not nosey...I just care!

OK, maybe this in nothing and it probably isn't anything but it's getting to me. I realize I don't ask about everyone all the time. I mean I would spend half an hour asking you about everyone and we wouldn't talk about anything! I just expect to be told about whatever thing is happening to whoever I need to know about because you know who I know and well let's back up a little shall we.

When something is going on in my life or in the life of one close to me whether that thing is good or bad I tell certain people about it; my support group, if you will. I keep in touch with people, I believe in the power of positive thinking and in prayer. So, I spread the word. I don't rent a billboard but I tell a few choice people. Why? Because they care. At least I thought so. Because they are my friends. At least I thought so. Maybe we have different definitions of friends. But there are my "GoTo" people. I thought I was one of their "GoTo" people too. But I am finding out that more than one of these people recently had a parent hospitalized for testing or procedures and I didn't know about it. Maybe I'm not one of their GoTo people, I guess I don't have to be. Wow, I feel like I just told somebody I love them and they don't say it back -which has happened to me too. Maybe they don't realize I care. Maybe I need to ask. Maybe they just don't want me to know. Maybe I need to let this go.

Okay, I don't. Whatever is going, please tell the friend how you feel. They may get hit by a bus tomorrow and you would have missed the chance. The only people that should bottle things up are the folks at Heinz. Okay, I guess there are some more, but you get the point.

Well Troy the friend was quicker than I was. Becuase although I was quick to overreact she was quick to pick up the phone. She reminded me that we all do/handle/share things differently. I cannot expect others to do things the way I do and that doesn't mean that they don't feel the same. Of course I knew this but I needed reminding. I hope that makes sense.

I am happy for you. And your friend is right, we all do it a little differently but it doesn't mean that the doing doesn't matter.
