When I saw my cousin at the beginning of March, she told me about her One Call Monday. She chooses one friend whom she doesn't talk to on a regular basis to reach out and call. Keeping the pattern helps her keep in touch with friends. Understanding that we all get busy at times, she knows she at least did her part in reaching out to connect.
With the convenience of Facebook and texting, the etiquette of keeping in touch with a simple phone call or hand written letter has been lost. I'm often guilty of not being a phone person, which many of my friends and family can attest to. Though when I do see them, it's like no time has passed at all. But I do like the idea of putting forth a better effort to try a similar One Call a week mantra.
