This little section comes from a tiny green book by one of my favorite authors. The book is called “A Friend is Someone Who Likes You” by Joan Walsh Anglund.

“Sometimes you don’t know who
are your friends.
Sometimes they are there all the time,
but you walk right past them
and don’t notice that they like you
in a special way.

And then you think you don’t have any

Then you must stop hurrying and rushing
so fast…

and move very slowly,
and look around carefully,
to see someone who smiles at you
in a special way…
or a dog that wags its tail extra hard
whenever you are near…
or a tree that lets you climb it easily…
or a brook that lets you be quiet
when you want to be quiet.
Sometimes you have to find your friend.”

May you all find your Friend. 🙂
