Happy Mom Tip: The off-radar phone call

Happy Mom Tips
By Rivkah Caroline

Not a bad investment for three minutes of your time! 

Got a never-ending list of people whose calls you need to return?

Take a moment and think of someone not on your radar who would really smile from hearing your voice. Think Grandmother. Think old school friend going through a hard time. You will make them feel good all day and chances are you'll feel nice too. Not a bad investment for three minutes of your time!

Thank you!!

There's an elderly lady that i know, not very well - whom I haven't spoken to in a very long time. I've been meaning to, but you know how it goes...

So today, immediately after seeing your post, I called - and her number is disconnected!!!

I spent close to 2 hours tracking her down at an old age home in the area and after finding out that there are 2 ladies with the same surname and almost identical first names - I found out the one I was looking for is in hospital.

Another 45 minutes on hold and through transfers I got her room.

The nurses put the phone to her ear - she couldnt speak loud enough for me to hear her. I don't even know if she really recognized who I was, or what I was doing calling - but I think she did.

I hope she realized that I put effort into finding her and time into tracing her and I hope she realized its because I care! I just hope it does something to make her feel better...
