Seven simple ways to say "I Care"

“Good friends are like stars. You may
not always see them, but you know
they’re always there.” I am not sure
who said this, but isn’t it so true? Then
again, do we worker bees always
remember to be there for our friends?
Some gentle reminders on how to
show the love you feel, despite all the
1. Keep some postcards in your bag,
and when you have a few free
minutes, jot down your thoughts for
your friend. When you meet her, gift
her the postcards.
2. Send her a bunch of flowers. One
fine day. Just like that.
3. Brighten some of her mornings with
a simple text message: “Have a
sunshine day!” is my favorite.
4. Do return her phone calls and
messages promptly. Sometimes, we
don’t do that, thinking we’ll have to
talk too long. Even if you have to be
brief, let your friend know you’ve been
thinking of her and will call back.
5. If your friend tells you she’s got a
mammogram scheduled or her kid’s
first day at daycare coming up, make a
note to check with her how it went.
6. Listen to her when you speak on the
phone. Even in our short
conversations, we tend to let out our
little concerns and problems. Catch
them, and see if at all you can help.
Once, I mentioned to my friend that I
was struggling to find research
material for an article. Next thing I
knew, she had mailed me neatly
organized information on it!
7. The Internet may have
“disconnected” us in a way, but it can
also be a wonderful way to stay in
touch. I often email my closest friend,
sharing a new recipe I tried, telling her
about my day, or simply a “Hey,
thinking of you! Coffee tomorrow?”
How do you nurture your friendships? I
would love some tips!
