Calls From Lilly

catsI talk to Lilly about every day on the phone, and our conversation is usually about her new guy-crushes or her many conflicts with people. She never fails to ask what’s going on with our cats, Noodles and Dunkin’. If the cats have been quarreling and fighting, she loves to hear it, and laughs.

If she leaves a message, it will usually be, “Hi Mom, it’s me, just wondering how you’re doing.” or, “Hi Mom. Just wanted to say goodnight.”

Sometimes she will call to apologize, and this amazes me, for the world has been so unfair to her.

People who have had life easy often find it difficult to apologize to others, but not Lilly.

She still messes up big-time, but she is quick to say that she is sorry to the people who have born the brunt of her behavior.

Sometimes I will get three or four calls a day, and because there isn’t much to talk about after that first call, I groan. (Being honest.) But if I stop to think about it, each call is Lilly reaching out. A girl who refused love and attachment -reaching out? God is good!

If you haven’t read Chasing Lilly, please do. And if you have, spread the word about this amazing story. Love my readers, Nealie
