I was able to talk to Peggy last night.
She actually said hello! It was so good to hear her voice again though the conversation didn't last long. Her attention span is short and after hello, she didn't have anything else to say.
I told her that I loved her but I don't know if she heard it or even knew what it meant.
That doesn't matter. All that mattered was that I heard her voice and I got to tell her that I loved her.
I thought about the many times that I have said hello to people and not expected any further conversation. I say hello to people that I meet on the street or in stores. They do not know me and I do not know them. I do not expect them to have a long conversation with me about their life or their day.
It is just a greeting.
Peggy was kind enough to say a simple hello.
She doesn't know me and didn't expect anything further from me. When I told her that I loved her she put the phone down and was finished with the call.
I thought about all the people that I say hello to in a day.
I expected and wished for more with Peggy last night. I wanted more from her than a simple hello but she was talking to a stranger and to a stranger.............
Hello is enough.
I Love You Today, Peggy!
