"The Lord answers our prayers, but it is usually through another person that he meets our needs....""The Lord answers our prayers, but it is usually through another person that he meets our needs...."

A few weeks ago, I called my friend Alex ( Alex is gender-neutral, and of course is not his/her real name.  But I double-checked anyways and now publish this with his/her permission).  Alex did not answer the phone, but the following text conversation ensued:

Alex:  Hey!  I’m at work.  How are you?

Katherine: Haha, I figured.  Just calling to say hi!  Call back when you can. No rush, just thought of you and wanted to let you know. 

Alex:  Katherine, I truly believe you were inspired to call me.  Thank you for following through with your thoughts even if you didn’t think anything of it.  When you called, I was in the bathroom crying having a really hard time, but your calling is an answer to my prayers. 

Katherine:  Alex, I’m so glad I could lift your spirits a little.  You lift mine.  I really do hope things get better.  Call/text/email anytime!

Alex:  Katherine, thank you.  You are amazing!

I do not relay this text exchange to brag.  I just want to remind you that you never know what role you are playing in someone’s life.

The title of this post comes from this quote by President Spencer W. Kimball.

Don’t be afraid to reach out.

READERS:  Who’s day will YOU make with a terrific text?

Oh ya, and save your text messages!

Sometimes you need a little artificial help…

to get that windblown look.

But other times it’s totally natural.  And with any luck, you might even be surrounded by hot Fijian Rugby players!

The Yellow Ipad

I wish the woman in “The Yellow Wallpaper” had an Ipad.  It would have made it easier to hide her writing.  And she probably could have read all about postnatal psychosis and learned what good drugs could have helped her feel better.  Mental illness is real.  But so is help.
