You finally throw your hands up about to give up and a friend calls you. She carries on and on how grateful she is to have you as a friend. Then she goes ahead giving you an accounting of all the things she was able to do because of your help.
That's when you realize what you needed to do to finish your project, you thank your friend and remind her how much she has also helped you. So you tell your friend good-bye and go focus on your project until you complete it.
Later you text your friend back with just a simple thank you.
