|My friend Anna|
The next day, having felt bad for not following through on that thought, I called her. It turns out that she had been sick the day before, and had really wanted a can of soup. I think I even had the kind she wanted, and I easily could have gone to the store if I didn't. I can't even remember if she took her sick self to the store, or if some other friend or family member saved the day. I just know that, even though she chuckled when I confessed, and is still my friend today, I could have helped her had I simply taken a moment to call. I try to remember that experience whenever I have the thought to call somebody. They might not really need me to call, but then again, they might be sick, and want a can of soup.
