For the last twenty years (or so), I’ve been in the habit of calling my parents every morning. It started when my husband I lived in a different state and life was turbulent and I just needed that three minute contact with Mom and Dad to help me settle.
When my mom was sick, it became an easy way for her to have some social interaction on the days I couldn’t get by to see her. It was a break for my dad. A chance for them both to talk to their grandchildren. Sometimes my sister would conference in as well, if she had time when the call was happening.
Now that Mom’s been gone a while, Dad and I still talk every morning. But with our weird times right now, our conversations go a lot like this. “What’s new in the world?” “Nothing here. You?” “Nope.”
We often then still manage to find ways to chat for fifteen or twenty minutes, but as I was sitting here trying to think of what breezy thing to say to y’all as an intro for the Sunday Edition, it’s all I could think of.
What’s new with you?
And I guess, given the state of the world, maybe that’s good.
I hope you’re all staying healthy and safe. And that you’re able to keep your spirits up and remember that we serve a God who is in control.
