Hey there

Hey there

As I sit here reading emails about good wishes and holiday cheer.
I wonder why it is only sent at this time of year.
I am only thought of, liked or loved within reason
for those few short days around the Christmas season?

I like to think that I am kind and good,
And possibly a little misunderstood.
But the reality is that I am as much to blame
For playing the “holiday cheer wishing” game.

I don’t take time every month to check in on family and friends
Just to say, “Hey there, I was thinking of you today”.
I always seem to rationalize this away by saying to myself
 “I’m busy right now, I’ll talk to them some other day”.

Sometimes that email, text or call is just what is needed to brighten the mood
So, I promise, starting right now, I will try to be good
at sending the message or picking up the phone
and even leaving a message if no one is home.

I don’t want any of my family or friends feeling abandoned or blue.
Thinking no one else cares for them, because that just isn’t true.
I what I’m saying in my own awkward way is
“Hey there, I was thinking of you today”.
