A few years ago, we received a late night phone call. You know the kind. The ones that change our lives forever. My husband’s brother had been killed in a freak accident.
One phone call. One life-changing call.
When I was twenty-one, I waited two weeks for a call. My future husband finally called me and invited me out on our first date. Three months later, he asked me to marry him. My life changed because he dialed my number.
One phone call—one life-changing phone call.
I’d tried to get pregnant for two years. Finally, I gave up and bought a dog. Two months later the phone rang. “You’re pregnant, Mrs. Tiffany.”
Another call eight years ago. “We’d like to hire you.” My husband looked at me and laughed. Two weeks later, he was packed and on his way to Florida to start his new career. I waited three more months for the call telling me our home sold.
Life-changing phone calls.
How many times have you received a call that changed your life forever? Maybe it was a person offering you a job, maybe it was a doctor’s office with bad news, and maybe it was a teacher telling you that your child was failing in school. Maybe it was a call from that coveted agent or publishing house.
It takes one call to change a person’s life forever. When was the last time you picked up the phone and made a difference?
