Mrs. S., I didn’t intend to hang back after class. I was even more embarrassed when I started talking and crying.

Gratitude: Friendship

I am grateful for friendship. Some friends are fare-weather, Some are there to exploit, Some exist to become strangers. But those chosen few, Who see you at your best, And hold you during your worst. That inspire goodness, And bring peace to your heart. They are those who truly last. -M.E. InkOwl
