it seems now we only call if we need something
we would never stop by someones house without notice
the thought of someone stopping by our house is horrifying
because they will probably find it dirty
as i child i remember going to visit people
but only a few times as an adult have i practiced this old act of kindness
because i'm too busy
because i don't want to intrude
because what will i do with my children
but the few times i have
it has been a blessing to myself and the person i stopped to visit
because it takes time
it makes someone feel important
you get to say "i didn't come to see your house, i came to see you"
when was the last time you "visited"?
