It really IS worth it.

Right before Shavuous a family in my community suffered a tragic loss. I don't know this family very well, but I wanted to show my support. However, I kept telling myself I was too busy to pay a shiva call. Fortunately, I did not listen to the naysayer inside my head. I got in my car and paid the shiva call. Granted, the logistics were not complicated in the way that Lori describes. However, in my heart I know I have done the right thing.
