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.
