Comment of the Week

“I’m so glad you wrote about the importance of not neglecting friendships. I have been meaning to contact a long-time friend that I haven’t seen in years. We had chatted last fall, and it’s been months since I last texted her. But your post motivated me to send her a quick message, and now we have a lunch date planned for next week! It’s all too easy to let weeks turn into months turn into years. Thank you, Mark.”
