The power of a call

This afternoon while taking a break after a long practice session, I received a unexpected pleasant call from a good friend who had called from miles away. I'm pleased to know that she is happy with what she is doing now, and to hear from her.

She said that it is more cordial to call than to email. She proved to be right. I am touched to hear from her. I have been more comfortable in writing than using phone, yet her friendly gesture reminded me how powerful a phone call could be. It brought timely support when I needed some.

Thank you XS for your call. Good luck to you and take care.

One of the plans for the year is to make time to visit her in the land down under. May the plan be realised.

So sweet of her to call from Aussie land.

I'm planning a visit to Sydney in October... want to come along? :)

eastcoastlife: Coincidentally, we share similar plans. Though I prefer to be a solo traveller, I shall consider.

Yes, I prefer e-mail as well. But sometimes a call is so much more personal and touching. Immediate gratification. It's good to be reminded of that.

It's always nice to have a surprise phone call especially from a good friend. A simple call can just light up the whole day!

Doreen: Certainly. :)
