The Phone Call

Today I was waiting for an important phone call.

I carried my phone everywhere.

I glanced at it every few minutes to make sure I didn’t miss the call.

I changed my regular routine just so I could watch the phone.

As if watching it would make it ring sooner.

Then the call came.

A sigh of relief.

And then determining we must wait for another phone call later this week.

I then set my phone aside.

For I will have to watch it later this week.

Waiting for it to ring.

With news.

Hopefully good news.

    Nothing like being on pins and needles waiting for news. Thankfully, it sounds like the first call was pretty good news, but no ALL the story you wanted to get…so I hope the rest of the news comes soon and is what you were hoping to hear! Nice slice!
