I know these 2 beautiful little girls. The first little girl is more shy and reserved. Well this wonderful, shy, reserved girl gets to do something this year that may be scary and uncomfortable at first, but is going to be really great in the long run. I worry about her all the time. I dearly hope that some cute girl will take her hand and bring her into her circle of friend. The second little girl, though she makes friends more easily, she doesn't reach much farther than her circle of friends she is comfortable with.
I can't help but think about this girl who is going to need friends, and this other girl who I don't think would be able to recognize another child's need for a friend. I guess the moral of the story is that I hope and pray that someday I am a good enough mother to teach my children that when they see someone at school, or church, or the park, etc..who is sitting alone, or playing alone, or just looks like they need a friend. I hope that Clint and I will be able to teach our children to be the ones to take that child's hand and say, "Hey, come over here and play with us!"
