Throughout our lives we are faced with making decisions. Some are important; some are not. Some will change our lives forever; others will make no difference. Some of our decisions will haunt us forever; some of our decisions we will never remember making.
I had a decision to make last week. I will not tell you the outcome in this article, but I will respond to it after I hear from you, the reader. Here is what happened:
For the past four years I have talked to – or texted – a man every single day. In those four years there were only two days that this event did not happen. We were good friends; discussed many different topics.
I talked to this person last Thursday and before hanging up said we would probably talk on Friday.
Friday came and I had a question about a leak in my sink. I sent him a text asking for direction, but did not receive an answer. Strange, but didn’t think anything of it.
Saturday came and I repeated the question, but, again, no answer. This was so out of character I began to get worried. Saturday night I called but both his cell phones were turned off. That really had me worried because he uses his phones for business.
Sunday morning came and I called again. Same response for the telephones. This man had a stroke several years ago, and lives in an area where there are no neighbors. My thoughts were that maybe something had happened and I became alarmed. Still, I did nothing.
Monday morning I called again. I texted him also. Phones both went to voice mail and no answer to my text.
Question to you: What would you have done next?
Once this is posted by my editor-dude, I will respond to what I did do and what happened two days after this is published. I am truly interested in your responses. Thank you.
